Blogger's Quilt Festival 2011


First of all, many thanks to Amy's Creative Side for hosting yet another Blogger's Quilt rock!

Now on to the show...

My family moved a lot while I was growing up and as a result I often felt that I was living just a bit outside of my comfort zone.  So when it came time to leave home I found that I had a strong urge to develop my own comfort zone and to make choices in my life that would allow me to remain firmly within that happy place.  While that was certainly what I needed at the time I'm beginning to wonder if that's still the right choice for me.  Which brings me to this quilt, (see, there was actually a point to this long and rambling story) which is very much outside of my comfort zone.

You see, I'm a white-sashing kind of gal, usually with clear or muted colors.  I am most certainly not a red-sashing kind of gal, with bright, bold colors.  

And yet I found myself making a quilt that distinctly fits into the latter category when I made this one.

And you know what?  I love it.  Which leaves me to wonder if perhaps it's time to venture outside of that comfort zone after all...
