For most of last week my design wall was empty. I just couldn’t think of anything I really wanted to work on. But Sunday afternoon I walked into the studio and saw these batik strips hanging in about three different places and all of a sudden I had an idea. I sorted them by color (not always easy with batiks) and then I cut them in half and put them into groups of 5. I’m not sharing what is going to happen with them but, at least to begin with, this should be mindless sewing, the kind I can do when I am tired. I love batiks and am trying to use as many brights as possible.
And I also did some work on my iPad cover, the February color challenge from Judy and Vicki. This is just me foolin’ around with shapes and the colors but I am having fun. I cut the circles with my GO and I am experimenting with applique glue. The pliers are there because I couldn’t get the cap off of the glue without them. Anyway, I showed my fabric palette in the last post and also the inner stabilizer with the pattern drawn out on it. However, since I am dreaming this up as I go along, also, it could take me all month to get it together.
And, I am still quilting the Crazy Cats: I have three rows to go. I put this shot in because it shows the backing fabric really well. DH picked it out and it has really pretty gold flecks in it. He had asked for a large quilt so he could keep warm at night. It’s a good thing that we have been having a rather warm winter (just the kind I like).
Speaking of warm weather, I did have a chance to take the convertible out for a top down spin. We have had 70+ days and when it wasn’t either threatening to rain or actually raining, I had the top down and the wind blowing through my hair. What fun!
Now, for more fun, drive on over to Judy’s blog to see a bunch of quilting creativity.
