The next blogger bundle in the series comes from Leanne Chahley in Edmonton, Alberta. Leanne blogs at She Can Quilt, and is one of the hosts (along with Nicky of Mrs. Sew and Sow) of Scraptastic Tuesday on the second Tuesday of every month.
When and why did you start blogging?
I started blogging on March 12, 2011, which is just over 4 years ago. I joined an internet quilt along and started making a lot of friends who blogged. So I thought I would just give blogging a try, and I never looked back. Blogging, for me, is a wonderful way to make and keep internet friends, chronicle my quilting journey, and to share what I have learned with others.
What is one of your favourite finished projects?
I always say that I love the project I am working on right now the most. However, today I will say Breathe. I have been working on a series of these minimalist circle quilts for a couple of years now and there are more in my head to make. While I was making Breathe, the process, the colours, the design all reminded me to breathe and just be in this moment, not to let the stresses of life overwhelm, which was exactly what I needed at that time. I am hoping that Breathe captures a feeling of lightness and calm.
What was the inspiration for the bundle?
I wanted to put together a bundle that was aqua and navy with lots of low volume greys and blacks. I had in mind to make a baby quilt that was soft and sweet with colours that would work for both genders. The bundle is lovely to work with on it’s own, as I have been doing this past month, or one could easily augment it with a splash of colour, like say mustard.
