other words a block buster book,turned into a movie. I know this because I have already done the casting in my head. Clint Eastwood will direct of course. So what's it about and what does this have to do with quilting?? It is about love, loss ,fear, hope. Are you listening Hollywood? It is also about the language of flowers. Little did I know this language was so detailed and complex. In the book there is a detailed guide. Did you know for instance, that baby's breath means everlasting love? I thought it was a cheap pretty fill flower. There are lots of messages sent in the book via flowers so why not in our quilts. I'm telling you it gives a whole new use for floral fabric of which I have NONE. From now on every quilt will have a piece of pansy fabric which means....think of me.

Triple the volume when I discovered "my month" is JANUARY!!!! I am still shaking in my boots, after all most of the well known in FMQ will participate. I can just hear them and some of you saying "Frances? Frances who? Check out her blog SewCalGal and join in the fun. Not to worry. I'm ready for my close up Mr. DeMille!.

It is not always clear what the intent is but I wanted to create depth. Starting out small and increasing the space between quilting is what I did. I think it could be interesting on the right project. ( another way of saying what the heck would you do with that?).
