Welcome to my place! It's all about my adventures making art quilts, and sources of inspiration from the ridiculous to the amazing.

I just completed this quilt top after several months and decided I am going to hand quilt this over the winter months ahead. WHAT? It's been ages since I've done this but I feel the tug back to my original days of quikting back in the nineties. The good thing is that I realize this is a long-term project, so I have no unrealistic expectations that it will be finished quickly. I project it will take between 6 to 8 months.
30 blocks, Sashing and borders, and we're talking a big time commitment. I usually do hand Quilting while I watch television or movies, or sometimes just when I want a good thinking time. Here's a photo of the top on my bed for pin basting, and a picture of the backing fabric in which the tiny pattern mimics the block pattern on the top. In the last picture is the first block in my snap frame ready for me to begin. Wish me luck!
Well here I am at the last day of my August challenge, to post an inspirational photo of some sort every day. Some days were really challenging and some days were a lot of fun. I learned a few things, like looking closer at things. I once read the definition somewhere that creativity occurs when you combine two things that don't normally go together. I found that spark in some of the photos I took. The photo of the balls of colorful Yarn on our walkway comes to mind. Anyway a big thank you to all who followed along! I know it has inspired me to take more photos and look for interesting subject matter. If you're just stumbling upon this project you can look at older posts for all the photos I posted in August. Here's my final photos.
