Working Weekend

I started out nice and organized, but then it all went kaffluey. My scrap boxes are overflowing again, and I decided I could use small pieces to build my design. Sorting out the specific colors, i.e. yellow, I built strips and while they look neat here, it is this sort of thing that makes the mess above.
 I'm using both silks and cottons, and taking my sweet time, working a few hours and then taking a break to have lunch and a nap. It is going along briskly anyway, but I feel that not rushing it has made a big difference in the design. After taking a week or more to make each of the pieced quilts this summer, I don't feel as compelled to increase my speed with this fused work.  I'm only showing details today, as I don't want to ruin the ta-da! moment.
Hurrying just doesn't seem necessary.

  1. My studio looks like that right now too - which I'm going to have to make right over the next couple of days because new flooring is going in over the weekend.

    The dawgs are so cute! :)

  2. You have the best blog! Always leave us wanting more. I can't wait to see what this is! The boys look like they think you aren't taking quite enough naps!

  3. What wonderful colors!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with that great fabric. I see you have your buddies there to help out.

    Have a great week,

  4. Oh those details are scrumptious!! And its so great to see someone else's workroom looks like that in the midst of creativity!

  5. That's exactly what happens to me...start out neatly and then the room looks like a tornado hit. Love the colours.

  6. Aha! Your studio CAN look like mine if you try. I have always thought you were the neatest quilter alive. lol :-)
    And the pups are cute, as always..

  7. Looks like a lot of sun to me now ...
    But we allow you your Tadaah moment, so take your time

  8. The guys are waiting on Ta Dah! Me too!
