Finished my new quilt! I challenged myself to make it for under $50 and totally met the challenge! The fabric for the squares I bought mostly at thrift stores and the remainder I bought at a local fabric store. The backing is a sheet I bought at Ross. Love making beautiful things out of nothing!
What’s inspiring me today: PBS’s ‘Craft in America’ series.
Originally I began to watch this series based off the fact that I was bored and needed something new to watch on TV, but once I watched the first episode I was hooked! Not only do these episodes explore different crafts in America, but they really delve into the beauty in the people who are creating them.
If you are any kind of craftsman (or woman for that matter) like I am, I would highly recommend checking this series out at the PBS website. Working with your hands to create beauty is an art form that should not and cannot be forgotten. This series does a beautiful way of reminding me that I am not alone in my longing to create, and that it’s an important part of my community/world to do so.
