Ok, just because I don't have a sewing machine handy doesn't mean I can't dream. Here is the next strip quilt but when I layed it out I decided it had to be bigger. Those gaps of white are disturbing but will be filled in with colored bits...whenever. Trouble with this stored image is that I am now looking, thinking, dreaming...of what's next and worrying that this may back burner. It takes discipline to stay focused and with so much visual stimulation I doubt my resolve. And then, there's always that missing sewing machine to take the blame.
Anyway, this week was full to brimming with excitement, planning and nice surprises from our gals.
Wendy made this in my Tuesday night group. She revealed on her last night and we all thought she did a super job. It had applique and piecing so she tried some rulers and left with a few. Hope to see you again Wendy!
Bundle is off to the UK to see family but before she goes and in her mad fashion she is whipping up a few cot quilts. This quilt uses that cowboy retro fabric and in this design. I think she bought it one day and came in with it finished the next!
and one more Kaffe quilt since hardly a moment goes by without thinking about the upcoming workshop and lecture with Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably, uh, have I mentioned this before?
And last but not least another wonderful and quirky sample of Sheena's quilts with vintage tops...a growing theme at material obsession.
have a great weekend! I am off for the next 11 hours of soccer and footy with the dog and a little bit of patchwork stashed in my bag which I never pull out but is stored there for safe thinking. all the best, kathy
