Baby Steps

Thanks for all the well-wishes–I am feeling much better, though I am slow to get back into the swing of things.  I feel like I'm taking baby steps, both literally and figuratively ... while playing catch-up as quickly as I can because my day-to-day life will be changing again soon.

I have squared up the silly string blocks, cut a bunch of tomato red fabrics into scrappy squares and rectangles, and started playing on the design wall.  Here's where I'm headed.

Adding red

I love how the plaid strips look like dancing X's, swaying and bending toward one another across the surface of the quilt.
