Catch me if you can

Sometimes I have a quilt design rattling around in my head for months, nay, years. I suppose the idea is gestating inside my brain until one day, when I turn my head just right, a vision of the completed quilt will flutter outside my line of sight and then, maddeningly, it will be gone once again.

Then one day I actually stop stalling and start sewing and the thing will appear as if by magic. Magic like this happens in the spring when long dormant things begin to spring into life:

carrot paper pieceing
This carrot grew from my original design idea of 3″x3″ to fun and skinny 9.5″x4.5″

The white/gray/brown colors of the late winter/pre-spring have me re-evaluating my #orangeaversion.

Anticipate my carrot paper piecing pattern soon!

This is Sandy signing off from Western New York.

    This is very cute! I have lots of orange scraps and I can’t wait to use them! And how about the green carrot top? LUV!

    Very cool carrot 🥕! I love how things start to sprout in the Spring too. This block is a good reminder of what is to come.
    I look forward to your pattern for it. 🙂
    Orange is glad you are re-evaluating! 😉🍊

    Hi Sandy! This carrot looks like you just harvested it. Yum – I love carrots but you don’t have to worry about that bunny hopping off with it. I can’t wait to see where this goes and the paper piecing pattern to go with it! ~smile~ Roseanne
