Secrets of the travelN quilts blocks - Louise Gale

I'm in total love with this quilt block and I've yet to lay my eager little hands on it. Louise Gale of The Creative Color Challenge, was kind enough to e-mail me this photo in advance of it getting here for coffee, before it's moved around with all the others, like a big soft puzzle pieces, so the light and the darks, can begin to create some contrast and the different weights of the fabrics create some balance. I just can't wait to pull em all together and see how much they compliment one another, like an old couple, married longer than they've been apart. Kinda, like in those first few class sessions, when we all had so many questions and we soon discovered, we all had the very same question and you knew, if you didn't get a chance to ask Kelly, someone else would. In case you haven't heard, Kelly's First e-class student are making a quilt for the soon Mother to be. The reponce has been wonderful and I'm sure we will be mailing her an awesome quilt. While we are waiting for the others to arrive, you may still have time to jump in ... speed stitching and or painting a quilt block.


  1. love your enthusiasm for the quilt.
    on my blog--making dye from plants. I think I do remember Martha doing something. maybe I should look on her site. love martha, have been a big fan for years.

  2. What a cool project, and love Louise's piece!

  3. That is so clever and wonderful. doubt I will get to help though. oh well... love the sentiments you voiced on my blog.
    Have a blessed weekend!

You just gotta love this creative go getter Laura ... I'm Thankful to Laura for sharing her inspiring story here on Sunday Spaces ...  The story of my studio is tied in to my cancer. Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with  thyroid cancer . I say finally because I was sick for 10 months, constant choking and coughing all night long before I found my cancer. ~ okay, side-bar for a quick cancer story....  I was sick, and first we thought it was a virus, then maybe  bronchitis , then maybe an allergy, I coughed and coughed, I couldn't sleep. I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
