A Little Spark

My calendar quilt has been on the back burner for the past four months, being snubbed for other projects, but I got a glimpse of a friend's quilt strips and got sparked to sit and catch mine up. I think I was getting bored with the long straight strip sets that I did for the first four months, so for the second four months I changed it up with diagonal cut squares for each week. Luckily I was throwing strips in a basket from projects that I was working on during these months so I could document them in this quilt (otherwise, it would have been very difficult to remember what I was doing at the time). I have more detailed info. on the fabrics I used, and close ups of some of the blocks here on my blog for anyone who is interested.

I always get sparked to start new things in January (when this was starting), and I usually get a little boost of energy in the fall with 'back to school' time. I know that I will have valleys during the year when I get behind on BOM projects ~ and sometimes I put them away all together for some time in the future. That's ok with me, I know a little spark will come eventually and I will always have some project in the wings just waiting for me to add a little more to it :)

Enjoy the day!
