Sometimes there are people that come into your life that are so special, you don't know how to express your love in any way other than making them a quilt.
Of course, I would love to make quilts for everyone I love, and I hope I get to some day. Like for my grandmothers, and all my aunts. For my cousins and all their children... maybe one day.
But sometimes, the timing is just right, and you'll find yourself with a person, an event, and just enough time to make them a quilt.

I had some maverick star blocks in my UFO pile so I pulled them out, made a few more, squared them up, and added some sweet sashing.

the last time?), they are just so much more manageable for the amount of time I have now. Big projects seem so overwhelming and... messy. I do want to get a new quilt (king size) on our bed before the end of the year, but we'll have to see how our routine changes when the school year begins. For now, I'll keep piecing hexagons to keep my fingers busy, enjoy the quilts I have around me, and keep daydreaming of all the other things I hope to make someday.
