two unrelated thoughts have been swirling around in my head as of late. first, a general guilt that i've been lax on my bundles of joy knitting and second, taking a quilt block pattern and knitting it. i've been obsessed with log cabin knitting ever since i first cracked open the mason dixon knitting book. but over the past few months i've been thinking about taking other quilting patterns and translating them into knitted blocks. so much so that i made a pinterest board for potential patterns.
i didn't want anything fussy - no triangles or complications, just some basic quilt blocks. i settled on the double v block for my first attempt.
as i was knitting this up i felt the calm come over me of scratching a creative itch that had been percolating for quite some time. i also found myself asking, "well *now* what am i going to do with this block?" a bundles of joy square-a-month project seemed the only logical answer.
this will serve as my june square. it also reminded me how much i like doing the square a month projects, very little pressure since it's just one block per month, and i always look forward to getting to make the next block.
my mind is already swirling with other quilts-into-knits ideas, just from the few pins i put on that board. don't expect this to be the last you hear of this idea.
does this ever happen to y'all? you can't get a crafty idea out of your head and it builds and grows until you can't ignore it and have to act - sooner than later?!?
