Geek…

Wanna know just how big of a geek I am? Of course you do…

This is what I’m doing in my hotel room, a night off on my own here in Cincy (I’m here to shoot the step-outs for the book)…

And the top I am piecing is the latest of my bee projects (there are two in the book). Not spilling the beans about this one publicly, but I can give a peek…

Here’s the thing about this quilt; I am doing it to illustrate an idea for an essay. Actually, these days a lot of the quilts I do are props for essays. That’s how big a geek I am. Sane quilters (a dubious proposition, I know) make quilts for people, or because they love sewing, or fabric, or whatnot. I make quilts as an excuse to write essays. Could I be a bigger geek???

Not sure just when the essay is going to go public; still need to deal with quilting this baby, and of course write the other zillion essays in line before this one. But what I can do at the moment is send out a great big thank you to everyone who helped out with this quilt by sending along blocks. You are all awesome!!!

A few didn’t make it into the top because the math did not work out to form a reasonable rectangle, but the remaining blocks will all get worked into the back. Again, thanks so incredibly much!!!
