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.
