Series or Obsession?

Yes, I think it could be called on obsession. I made this one this morning. I will still do a lot more to it. I love the pink and blue block on the far left. It was an accident really because the blue and pink strip wasn't quite wide enough so I added more pink to the sides. Suddenly it had those nice pink squares in the corners. That type of block is made according to Quilting Outside the Block. I made a small quilt using those techniques last year and thought they'd go well with the ones from Quilters' Playtime.

I scored again at the thrift shop yesterday. Somebody got rid of all their beads. I didn't take them all but grabbed all the nicest ones. They were in pill bottles at 20 cents a bottle. Nothing wrong with that!

Looks like you have started something now. Where will you put this one? Very nice they are too, keep up the good work and have fun.

Maybe it should be called an "obsessive series". That is quite a find for beads. I'm sure you'll put a lot of them to good use.

What a great find with the beads. I really like the circles with the squares in your obsessive quilt. Have a great day!

I love these. As my mother would say (she's teaches Art), "You're on to something. Keep going." I'd laugh, because my head would be telling me... "where am I going?"

But seriously, they are terrific.
