My friend Chelsea over at Patch the Giraffe had an idea to share her cute little chalkboard with some of her blogging friends so they can show off the quilt blocks they’re working on in the unique way that she does on her blog.
If you’re a blogger and want to be the next stop for the Travelling Chalkboard, leave me a comment, and we’ll send it along to you too!
For my turn with the chalkboard, I thought I’d share my Farmer’s Wife blocks. I’m working on them a little bit at a time, enjoying being a link in the long historical chain of quilters who have each put their own touch on these classic blocks over the centuries. These represent my first foray into paper piecing. They are imperfect, sweet reminders of how much I have to learn about the art of quilting.
Thanks to my photographer friend Kristin for helping me with the chalkboard photos. We took these pictures a couple of weeks ago, in the 103 degree Texas heat, at our favorite place to get inspired and take a few quilt photos– Revival, in Austin, Texas. If you live in the Austin area and haven’t been to Revival, it’s worth the trip. Revival supports local artisans and specializes in reclaimed home decor that is quirky, elegant and fun all at the same time. Here are a few pictures of what you can expect to see on your next trip there…
So now you know where I like to hang out…. it provides endless numbers of funky backdrops for my quilt projects, inspiration for my home, and hours of entertainment for my kids. Hope to see you around there sometime!
