That Quilt that I saw way back when, last spring--I think...its been there, in the back of mind, ever since I saw it--tugging on my sleeve like a little kid, whispering in my ear...

"hey!! lady, when are you EVER going to make me??"  

I have been brusque, almost rude in my reply:

"Go on kid... Scram!! Get out of here...I can't make you and we both know it!!"  

But because I am border-line obsessive/compulsive when it comes to these things...I could not let that quilt go or get it out of my mind.  I even reached out to the fabulous Dana over at Old Red Barn Co. seeking her sage advice.  Without hesitation she told me she rarely ever uses a quilt pattern and that this particular pattern seemed to her "completely do-able"

Did you hear that Quilt? YOU ARE COMPLETELY DO-ABLE!!

Whoo-hoo!!  That is all the encouragement I needed, so needless to say: we are on!! No pattern, no clue, no nothin'.  BUT this Quilt and I have a rendezvous with destiny and I couldn't be more excited...but I am kinda nervous...and honestly, a little bit scared.  But in a good way.

Dana invited me to do a quilt along, so, when I figure everything out, I think I am going to take her up on the invitation...will let you know more as I go.

(How does one who has no idea show others? Its kind of like a zen riddle, don't you think?)

In the meantime, I have just a little figuring to do and a few details to work just a little figuring and just a few details--yeah, right!!...did I mention that nervous/scared thing--still there...but in a good way...But I am up for the challenge, TOTALLY DO-ABLE, remember??

Ok, I come!!

 wish me luck!
