Easily Distracted, In A Good Way

Do you do this? I’m a hard-working, responsible, self-employed person with a long to-do list for the week that includes blog posts about the conference I just returned from, my new e-books, and more good stuff, and getting ready to leave for another teaching engagement. What am I doing instead of crossing tasks off that list?

Playing with the Victoria and Albert Museum’s online Patchwork Pattern Maker utility. You can use an image from their collection, or upload your own, like I did. The image below is from a photo I took in my front yard last year then digitally altered. The image above is the chart from the V&A.

I don’t suppose I should tell you that I have no intention of piecing a quilt. But boy, is this fun.

You can get a free download of the PDF pattern and instructions for making a quilt from this image here, or go here to convert your own image into a piecing pattern. Have fun!
