Beautiful Minds Insights into intelligence, creativity, and the mind The Messy Minds of Creative People The Creative Process from the first drop of paint on the canvas to the art exhibition– involves a mix of emotions, drives, skills, and behaviors. It’d be miraculous if these emotions, traits and behaviors didn’t often conflict with each other during the creative process, creating inner and outer tension. Indeed, creative people are often seen as weird, odd, and eccentric.

Quilted Journal Cover - Spring Garden, Red Bird
Journal Covers, Spring Garden, Pamelaquilts 30
Quilted Journal Cover Spring Garden Red Bird by Pamelaquilts, $30.00
Journal cover by Pamela Quilts
This journal features a sweet little red bird on the cover with strips of fabric in blue, browns and greens. I made this cover using fabrics in beautiful natural tones to go with the bird and bee print. The bird is outline quilted to give added dimension to the front of the cover. This journal cover measures 7 3/4 inches wide and 10 1/2 inches tall. It fits on a standard composition notebook (included with cover). The great thing about this journal is that once it is used up, you can just slip the cover off and insert a new notebook! You can take this everywhere with you, if it gets dirty, just wash it. You can machine wash in cold water and gentle detergent, then dry flat to avoid shrinking. I made this with a handy pocket on the inside flap and a ribbon bookmark. This would make a great journal for quilting notes, design sketches, or just lists (my personal favorite!). Perfect as a travel journal or a garden journal (so you can remember what you planted where this year, and next year as well!) I also sell my pattern to make these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62270594/quilted-journal-cover-pattern-pdf If you like to sew, it's easy to make your own, or I would be glad to make you a custom cover in your choice of themes. Check my sold items for other samples of journals I have made! Hand made by me in my smoke free studio!

Quilting a Circle of Nine and Giveaway
I am so excited today! Why? Because I just got my copy of "Quilting A Circle of Nine." Yep, it's hot off the press and ready to be in the hands of sewists and quilters across the country. And....there are two quilts in the book that yours truly quilted!!! This is the second in a series of quilt books by Janet Houts and Jean Ann Wright, and while I am biased about it, it's a book I'd recommend for everyone's arsenal of quilting books - a great addition for your collection. And why am I so biased? Because I got the privilege of doing the quilt work on two of Janet's quilts (squeals with delight)! I did these last spring just before the book's deadline, and so now it's great to see how everything went together in the final version. These are the quilts I quilted on my Gammill longarm machine: The theory behind A Circle of Nine quilts is easy, and one you can use over and over in designing your own quilts. This book has 12 wonderful quilts and patterns to choose from, and you can learn the construction methods so you can set your blocks using the ingenious approach of the Circle of Nine quilts. How many quilting books give you the recipe for success in creating your own designs? Janet Houts displaying a Circle of Nine quilt I became friends with Janet Houts through the formation of our local quilt guild two years ago. Here she is at our LQS - Sun Valley Fabric Granary - for the book signing of her first book, "Circle of Nine." She and her sister, Jean Ann Wright who is the former editor-in-chief of "Quilt" magazine, have produced three quilting books together and have many other published patterns and designs to their credit. Check out this fun video to get a better idea of what's inside this book by Landauer Publishing: Janet's and Jean Ann's other books: I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have something I've done published. For 18 years I was a freelance writer and newspaper correspondent, and I had my byline published regularly. But I was always, always writing about what other people did. Now, my name is a credit in this book, and I am very proud to have contributed in a small, small way to this publication. I'm so tickled it makes me do The Happy Dance!!! So to help me celebrate, I am giving away one copy "Quilting A Circle of Nine." If you'd like to be entered into the drawing, you have three chances to win. 1. Leave a comment below and let me know if you think there is a Circle of Nine quilt in your future. 2. Spread the word. Blog about Quilting A Circle of Nine, Tweet about it, or post a link to this blog on your Facebook. Then leave a link for me to check it out! 3. An extra entry for old or new followers. Tell me how you follow for a third chance to win! Easy! Three chances to win. I'll leave the giveaway open until midnight Mountain time on Oct. 16, so enter today. And if you make a Circle of Nine quilt, I'd love to see a photo of your quilt top! Quilt with a smile, Barb
