A Special Project

On Monday I popped my Dogtooth Violets quilt in the mail right on schedule, so you'll be seeing it in an upcoming issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting - it'll be issue 18/4, I'll have to check for you exactly what the on-sale date is.

And in other news, here is a quilt I've drawn up to make soon ...

This quilt will have a special significance to me - for an occasion very late in the year. The block is a Temperance block, but that's not the significance ... do you see the T's hidden in there? There's four of them. This quilt is going to be named 'Turning Four T' ... because that's what's happening ... I'll be turning 40!

So, I'll be making this quilt up over the next few months, using my usual controlled scrappy palette, and I'm going to enjoy it 100%.

I love it--- can't wait to see it made up.... Something to look forward to-- the forties are great.

I can't wait to see this one in fabric. What a great way to celebrate turning 40.

What a cute idea! Wished I'd thought of commemorating 40! Can't wait to see what you do with it. Turning 40 can be a wild and crazy time. You start to do things you never thought you would!

Michele said...

Yay for 40! It was a good year for me and so far, I love the 40's. I know you will, too. Congratulations and great idea for celebrating!

You're so creative! I'm looking forward to getting a copy of the magazine with Dogtooth violets in it as I loved this quilt from the get go.

Jenny said...

That's lovely, how do you devise the pattern?

In our family, we celebrate birthdays at random days of the month they are in... but you will get to celebrate yours every time that you work on this quilt! How cool is that! Bless you. Forties are good.

The forties are to be celebrated!
It is such a great time of life for a woman....enjoy everyday of it and every year...because it will go faster than you thought possible.
Congratulations on all your fabulous quilts and sharing your positive attitude with us.
Happy 40th!

Happy Sewing,
Kim

How wonderful! I love that design, I saw one similar to that but it was an antique quilt. I have always loved that pattern! Can't wait to see how yours turns out, I'm sure it will be beautiful!

Turning 4-T, that is too clever, how in the world did you think of that? Of course, you're only pre-40 years old, you still have an operational mind :-).

So clever!! I am also turning 4T this year and I may adopt your idea and make one too (if that's okay!). All of the quilts I've been making lately have been for other people, and this "commemorative" quilt would be a great excuse to finally make something for myself!

Love it! Love the quilt and the name is so perfect! Good job Taz!

What a good idea - make a quilt gift for yourself! Great design.
