Wow what a lot of ...


The deadline for the quilt show has me spreading a few things on my work table.


This is not going as fast as I'd hoped.


The challenge fabric for this year's show is the fuchsia.  I had thought convergence and actually made two other sets to converge with this set but yuk!  Not going to work. I unearthed it because a challenge is a challenge even if I've now made it more challenging. :(  So this is back on the table for review and inspiration. HMMMM???



There is a good chance I could have this MQ'd for the show.  Nothing fancy but I like it.  I just have to get inspired for the final border.


I'm really enjoying the AB class.  This is a work page on motion as a design element.  I often think of a strong wind as motion.  Because we are also considering contrast I realized the soft fall of snow is just as much motion as gusts of leaves are. The travel path of a beam of light, the unfolding of a paint fan deck.   Most interesting!!!  hmm, I need a chunk of a map because if that doesn't speak movement, what does!  lol

So my link to The Needle & Thread Network shows a lot of different things and all I can say is my worktable is messy!  But I have a map of all the things I need to take on this day's travels.  I'll be checking on my fellow traveler's journeys.  Ticket's please.

You have lots on the go. I like the fuschia and blue strips and cant wait to see what you do with that.

What's wrong with the convergence piece? I love it (and often use something like that in my knitting).

I really like the orange and turquoise blue batik quilt, the quilting on the blocks seems really effective, I'd like to see the whole thing when ur finished...

I can really identify with your comment that "this is not going as fast as I'd hoped"!!! Nothing ever does, in my world. Love to see glimpses of your creative mind.

I love how you think Elle! What about daisies in the border of the quilt you want to finish for the show? Love the journal page on movement!
