I had to make a choice about where to begin: make a functional quilt or make an art quilt? Of course art quilt won out. I haven't done one in so long and I think I am ready to exercise my artier side. Looking at my collected fabrics, and finding these vivid colors raised my internal temperature and got my juices flowing.
But Dave and I were having a date day at the movies (Skyfall, YUM!) and so I had only an hour and 15 minutes to get started on something before we had to leave. No hemming and hawing, I had to jump right in! One thing led to another and I found luscious combinations to put together and then we had to go.
We got back from the movie about 4:30 and I went right back to the studio. So excited.
I finished the top and then waiting til early this morning to do the hand embroidery, using perle cotton and then spent the rest of the day machine quilting it.
