Having spent the better part of this millennium as a free motion quilting zealot I was pleasantly surprised to discover how much I enjoyed this meditative stitch by stitch work. It feels so soft. I made two panels in this design as the front and back of my pouch for the "Pretty Little Pouch Swap". The great thing about that is I'm making a lined bag, so the backside of the quilting is unimportant. The perfect starter project. Can't wait to have a finished bag to share!

Now my new afternoon ritual is coming home to find donated blocks in the mail for the Black Rock Stitchery! Thank you to all who have sent blocks, with a special thanks to Linda who sent a whopping 30. We have a total of 95 so far; that's enough for three 5'x6' quilts! Please keep the blocks coming (just comment or email for my mailing address). I truly hope everyone is enjoying summer. It's breathtaking over here, but I'm aware it will be over all too soon so I can't complain.
