Moving Forward


I made this today. It was going to be the start of a big quilt but once I got into it, I realized that was a silly idea. It would only sit in the 'projects started but nowhere near being finished' pile for a couple of months. I cut my long strip of triangles into four and then added a couple of rows to even things out a bit. This will soon be the front of a pillow that will reside on our bed.


Our worlds' changed the same hour I set this project aside for the evening. It was quite fitting then, that this little pillow be named 'Moving Forward', in honor of some good news.
