It's the Journey

Yesterday afternoon the "Head For The Border" challenge group met for show and tell and to select the final border elements. Applique and either the color red, yellow or blue were selected. I am going to incorporate all of the above using a quote I found in a "Pillow Sayings" book that describes, perfectly, everything about this journey.  My applique will be letters and done by machine, the color choices will be within the lettering. We'll gather once more, as a group, for the grand finale and a meal together at the end of August. I cannot remember a better challenge or one that's been as much fun. I am grateful for the organizers at my LQS who thought outside the box on this one and worked hard to encourage and support the participants every step along the way. And so... my plan, or roadmap, to get me to the goal:
"It's The Journey" ~ 47.5" X 59.5"

This poster-style quilt will eventually hang between the front windows in the studio
as an everyday reminder that life really is all about the journey, NOT the destination!

Life is Good!
