All-over-rover...
That's what Darcie calls an edge to edge pattern and I think it is so cute! All over rover. Of course, there are endless possibilities to an all over rover. Meandering and piddling. This is just one that I used recently. I practice on 60" wide fabric so that when it is all used up, someone gets a little throw blanket. This one went to Boo. I bound it in yellow- binding I had forgotten that I'd already made- who would've suspected I was being such a good girl? Anyway, it was from the binding scrapbin. I am amazed at how many little bits are resurrected from there. Scrap binding doesn't need to be that long- sometimes I just sew together like-colored pieces and other times there is plenty for a small wallhanging or such. Really small pieces can be ironed flat for the string quilt project. Just hate to throw anything away, ya know?
I'm a bit apathetic about the quilting room, here lately. Maybe my feelings are just getting more normal! I have been super busy and I just feel myself slowing down a bit. Which is usually a good thing and coincides with the laundry pile getting so high it has become a hazard to walk by! It might fall on my wittle head.

what a great fill pattern...

slowing down seems fairly normal to me for the Jan/Feb blahs that set in in this house!! :-)

You did this all free-hand? I love it!!!

Winter is when I like to stay in my quilting and sewing rooms. I love winter! I suppose if I wasn't blessed with a toasty warm house, warm clothes, and all of the quilty goodness that I have, I would feel very different about winter. :~)

;-) You're cute!

I think we all can relate to some creative blues setting in once in awhile...whether it's winter or summer or something in between. You just have to look at what you accomplish everyday. There may not always be something quilting...but there is ALWAYS something! I know it. I know you. ;-)

Maybe you need to plan a little blues feast? (Instead of Fest...get it...Blues Fest?) Just all of your favorites. Or a movie marathon?

This too shall pass.

Love you all over rover!

OK, it has been a while since I read anything on this site so I got lots of good info. 18x30 is one seriously big room. Alex and Kenny took a 19x22 room and made a whole apartment of it.
