10 Done, 6 To Go

I am measuring and squaring up as I go and it feels like the good ol' days before wonkitude set in. Is there any rhyme or reason to my color choices? Hmm, I am choosing colors that are in the center mitered block, and hoping to arrange the finished 16 into some sort of cohesive design. That might take some doing, or unsewing. We'll have to see. Anyway, I am having fun and making lots of leftover strips which I know I can use in something more improvisational in the future.

Chum snores in accompaniment to the sound of the sewing machine. He is sleeping on the hand dyed backside of another quilt. As you walk through my house, there are quilts everywhere, and one even on the floor in front of the washer. Must get the washing done.

  7. Wonderful!

    Chum reminds me of my boys when they were little and wanted me to put down my sewing and pay attention to them. They would get that face....but they never started snoring!

  8. So very inspiring!
    Love what you are doing with the colors and stripes.

  9. Chum appears to have everything under a supervisor he seems delightfully cute and efficient.

    I love these sweet colors ...playful and well executed! Have a great week in your studio. Give Chum a pat for me. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  10. That looks fantastic, really fresh. I am still playing with quilted bits and connector strips!!! What a fantastic technique - it's just using up scraps for me at the moment but boy am I having fun. Thank you for the inspiration.
