And in breaking news...

Remember my first post of the year when I said I wanted to expand my creative horizons? think outside the box?

I got an email from Cynthia last week (fabricworm/birch). The sample bolts of her fabulous line of fabric will soon be available, and she asked me to design a quilt using her fabric (and yes, that thud you just heard might have been me falling to the floor from excitement). So we have tossed around a couple of ideas, and even found out we had exactly the same thoughts when it came to a certain design detail.

I'm super excited, completely honored to be asked....and a tiny bit terrified. And I didn't think the desire to expand my creative horizons would come true so quickly! So thanks, Cynthia, for giving me a little push over the edge. I'm ready to do a little flying.

How much of a tool does it make me that I gasped when I saw that fabric? I don't quilt/sew, but I love me some colors and patterns.

Maybe I should have gone into textiles...
