I have spent the past few days looking at quilt books, auditioning fabric, sketching, and just plain thinking about what I was going to do for Round 1. This afternoon I had an opportunity to spend time with my little center block and my sewing machine. I stared going in a totally different direction with the triangles and then all of a sudden, I realized sawtooth triangles had a dog t00th look---why not. My theme seems to be headed toward dogs and dots---so I decided to go with fabric that had dots and the yellow was added for a little spark. This was a true liberated experience---for all my books, auditions, sketching I just sat at the machine and let it happen. I think the "happy" center block still looks happy and I had fun. Looking forward to the June 10 round.
