That's the title I've chosen for the quilt I made -- just this morning, in a frenzy of inspiration. I've been in a slump for the past 4-5 months, don;'t know why, and I got out of it the day of a big storm last week when the electricity was knocked out for over a day. I sat by the light from a window and made a small quilt by hand, something I haven't done for a couple of years. And when the electricity came back on, I had the sewing machine going with my other idea, which is this quilt, and may start a series.
Exuberance is made from sewing small triangles all over an ugly piece of fabric that I knew I was never going to use. Many of the triangles are left over pieces of Flying Geese that went into a humongous quilt I made for the bed -- something I'll never do again. Too big, too much sewing. I had no idea I had so many Flying Geese triangles left over... and still more. I think I put them to good use, and I love how it came out.



  1. Susanne... this is BRILL!! and so much better in that you are out of your creative slump!
    So now, on reveal day... may we expect to see a series? Huh? Please?

  2. Glad you are out of your slump. This is beautiful. I love the color combination. Great job!

  3. Thank you for your kind comments. I have made two others in similar colors (all those leftover triangles) -- almost finished -- and another lined up with a different color scheme.

  4. got it! I am most taken with your choice of colors. They are so lively, so happy. A good thing, for sure. Helen
