Here is my design wall for today. This is mostly what I got done early last week but it is still on the wall so I am claiming it today. I did the Bunny Hill block and the two LQS blocks from the Underground Railroad book. I would have gotten more done but it was in the 70s Friday and Saturday and I spent both afternoons sitting on the deck, in the sunshine, reading. I kept thinking that I would just read to the end of a chapter and then go in and sew, but it didn’t happen.
Fortunately it was cloudy today and I made it into the studio. The block on the lower right is the most recent Layer Cake Quiltalong: I really like it.
The other thing I worked on is my first Journal Quilt. 3 Creative Studios has a journal quilt challenge in which quilters are supposed to make a quilt a week. I, however, decided that one a month would be the best I could do (no artistic talent here). This quilt is representational of our accident on 12/26/11. I have the highway and our tire tracks. It is made with a very light blue print. The highway and tire tracks are done with stitches on my sewing machine and then the whole thing is covered with a bridal tulle that has sparkles on it.
This is the second “art quilt” I have done. It is really hard for me to think out of the geometric box so we’ll see if I can do it again.
Be sure to stop by Judy’s blog to see what other quilters are up to.
