Stitching and Stretching

This is the quilt I sewed on yesterday. It is for a challenge from our guild, for the upcoming quilt show.  We were to use the theme of a holiday (any from around the world) and the "churn dash" block.
Mine is based on a cherry blossom festival, with some pomegranates thrown in.  Birds, and blossoms, trees and fruit.
 Making it was fun, I will have to come up with a good explanation of my "holiday"! It also remains to be quilted, perhaps with a final border first....or not.....

Now the "counter pose" for all those hours sitting at a sewing machine, leaning forward, is to stretch the other way....
This is the "bow pose" (as in bow and arrow) which is a perfect release.....though other shoulder and back stretches could work too!  [Yes, that is me in the photo above.  I am lucky to still be this flexible, so off to yoga class today to maintain my range of motion!]

Oh, you make the most gorgeous quilts. You always use such beautiful colors! And you look great, too! I walked at the Park yesterday and tomorrow we are going to the beach! It's great to be healthy...and keep moving! Sweet hugs my friend!

Great quilt - and such a clever idea for a holiday. Good job at stretching.
