I have started to receive mail containing scraps for my Millennium quilt. It was so fun to look at all the different fabrics. I especially liked the Texas fabric that came from Missouri! With what I have received so far, the fabrics are similar to what I have already used so the the last seven rows I make with the scrap fabrics will blend well. Thanks again everyone!
I was home with my bad cold yesterday. By the afternoon I was feeling a little better so I decided to get some sewing done.
Got the blocks done for the Georgia Theater project - due 4/30/10.
Got the pinwheel blocks done for one shabby chick.
I am doing the Art Quilt Workbook project with upstatelisa and I was behind. I am now caught up with getting my homework pieces for Chapter 3 and 4 done although I have not done any of the series pieces.
Here is my Chapter 3 piece. Yes, my pear is blue with a hot pink stem and an orange shadow. I quilted the bottom half to make it look like the pear was sitting on something rather than just floating in space. This was a fused piece. Would I do this technique again? Probably not. I am not much for making picture type quilts.
Here is my Chapter 4 exercise. I used some bark cloth and my hand dyed fabric. The beads were just in a drawer and I like the way they look on this.
TGIF - I still don't feel great, but I am going back to work today.
