What a concept… I actually am making a small art quilt! I’ve been slamming busy as usual, and this time it is in the “oh I should make just one more new sample for Quilt Festival/teaching” mode! On Saturday morning, I’m talking about thread-coloring, so decided to make a new piece, a lily. Here it is in progress:
I’ve managed to quilt the pink, so this afternoon I’ll start in on the foliage. I’ve used six or seven different pinks/reds. As you can gather by the reference photo, it is about 14 x 20 ish, but will be seriously cropped. The current proportions/composition need fine-tuning, but decided I’d quilt first and chop second (probably at least an inch on all sides, more on the sides).
It is also glorious color time in Maine. This was the wooded acres behind our house at sunrise this morning:
And I’ve got a new chair that doesn’t make my creaky bones ache; clearly, the cats approve! I’ve started putting the back cushion down and covering it to avoid them destroying the back cushion by cat-squishing it!
And a glorious sunset the other evening…. one of the most glorious in quite a while.
Off to enjoy autumn!
