Peace and Quilting

I didn't realize until we were well on our way home from our beach vacation and Bill turned on the radio, that I hadn't listened to music for an entire week!  All we could tune into was a country station and I'm not much on country music, but just listening to the songs (it was actually a good string of songs we heard) gave me a sense of peace and relaxation that I struggled all week long for!  Funny to think that if I just would've found some music to listen to it would have been a whole lot easier to relax!  You don't really appreciate things until you have to do without them.  Granted I wasn't deprived of music for a week, I was just too busy trying to relax to even think about music!  Sheesh!!!
It made me think of the participants on Survivor....imagine going 39 days without music!  I know they probably don't think about that as much as missing good food!

Anyway, I'm back in the swing of things today, and spent a little time working on block placement for a couple of quillows.

I started these blocks several months ago when I saw a video for 'tube quilting' from Missouri Star Quilt Co.  I have plenty of Jennifer Paganelli's Flower Power fabrics and I thought it looked like a really fun pattern!

It was actually very easy and I love the contrast!

Then I laid out the pinwheel blocks I worked on last week on vacation.

I just love the pastel, vintage look!  I had accidentally referred to these fabrics in my last post as "Canning Day" but it's really "Sweet Remembrance".  I think there's still more of it available and it's clearance priced here.

Can't wait to get these quillows put together and ready for quilting!

P.S.  I've got more of the Jennifer Paganelli fabric for sale at shelf-clearing prices in my etsy fabric shop!!  Please drop by!!
