Treehouse for Karen
Hand dyed cottons and silks, commercial cottons,
Hand embellished with buttons and embroidery
Machine quilted, fused, 18.5" x 22"
This was just the sort of quilt that I was in the mood to make, so once I got started (mind you, it took several days of getting other stuff out of the way) I sailed right through to the finish line. Since Karen mentioned purple ( I love purple, turquoise, maroon, pinks, red, yellow and green) I knew I had just the fabric for the sky, and having saved this house shape for just such an opportunity, that was ready to use also. More intricate trees are showing up in the work of late, and more dots, triangles and lines complete the theme.
Everything conspired to make this a dee-licious project, with a sunny working day, good music on Pandora, (Ray Price since he just died) and a cleaned up studio.
I have been away from the blog because of the last smidges of the renovation, including on more trip to buy supplies at Ace and Lowe's. It's all done now, except some grouting that I volunteered to finish. The new parts of the house make the old parts more obvious, but methinks I am done with remodeling for a long while. I'd take photos, but we are already busy making messes, so until it is all neat again, just know that I am happily living in my dream home, pretty much.
