So what does a quilter do in the morning before she has to meet with her M.P. She sews of course. I found making the Stash Bee Hive 3 Bear Paw blocks for Tracy really helped to calm me down. Deep breathing and meditation was also very useful.
The meeting went very well and was actually quite interesting. I had to wait for a while before the meeting and I had quite a bit of time to look at this.
Of course I asked for a copy and I've had some fun using the flags as inspiration for quilt designs for the 2017 30 quilt design challenge which you can read more about here.
Here are two designs I've come up with so far.
This is a block design. There are four of them in the photo and it's pretty much identical toe the Carignan Saliere flag except I changed the crosses from white to yellow.
This is a full quilt design and it's based roughly on the Bearn flag.
I've been enjoying the quilt design challenge. I'm trying to approach it one design at a time, putting my emphasis more on the here and now, rather than the big number. I'm linking up with Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social. Now she is quite the designer.
