Stupid weather. School was cancelled today, so I loaded up a quilt and got busy. I posted these pictures on Facebook earlier, but thought I’d post them here, too.
I will admit that my “busy working on this quilt time” included a lot of time wandering around the Internet looking for ideas. More than a little of that time was spent perusing Green Fairy Quilts, and anyone familiar with Judi Madsen’s work will probably notice that I borrowed some motifs for the sampler I’m working on:
Because it’s all neutrals, I decided to break “out of the block” so to speak, and experiment with how the space is broken up with quilting. I’m a fan of quilting that “ignores” the piecing on samplers, I think it helps unite the disparate blocks.
I’m pretty excited about the direction this is going. There’s a lot of work yet to go, but it’s always such a relief to figure out WHAT to do.
And as nice as it has been to get started on this today, I do NOT want another school cancellation. Do you hear me Mother Nature?? We NEED TO GO TO SCHOOL.
