Which brings me to the name of my company... Divine Inspirations. I've been asked about the name and the answer is very simple. I want to honor God in everything I do. And the designs for both patterns came to me in such an amazingly fast way, like lightning striking (but in a good way) that I know without a doubt that He is the one who really deserves the credit. So, that is why I named the business Divine Inspirations.
I also felt blessed today with the Labor Day sales! Went to Hancock's and every single item I got was 50% off! One of the items I acquired was the Clover Bias Tape Maker. I hope it works well as I have needed to put some vines on a quilt forever.
Here is the second block in the "Quilt of Your Own" (QOYO) series.... sort of. I changed it quite a bit from it's original "Roman Stripe" pattern. I didn't want to make so many little squares, so I made them larger. And I didn't want to waste so much of the white fabric, so I just cut squares in half on the diagonal. Made long stripes and cut the triangles from those. I did have some leftover scraps from the stripes and will make a different block from those.
I'm obsessed with cutting right now. I cut the pieces for the next QOYO block. I'm working on the templates for the next BOM for the guild. I started cutting the FQs for my step-mom's next quilt. And tonight I'm going to cut some FQs for a demo for my sister's store. If time allows, I might even cut squares for some tessellated placemats. Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut.....
