Sold

     First of all, thanks for your comments. I do worry and love hearing about everything-from progress, failures, illnesses, pets, vacations and what's new in your studios. So, know that if you are gone for a time period, I am probably the friend who will send you an e-mail to check up on you!


    Well, back to what I am doing in my place. On Friday, I finished my next "L" motif quilt. All these blocks really were pretty boring to do but I did it . I went to my stash of Kona cotton solids-not much left but I want to use it up. So, I needed to use only what I had. No buying anything new in January.


     And then, I wanted to use a little less bold of color than I had been using. I didn't want to make it look like a pink and blue baby quilt either. So a small challenge to myself.  The further I got into it, the more I enjoyed how a block was looking on the design wall. And then it miraculously all fit together.( I hate the math and just kind of estimated how big to cut it. I did cut freehand for the pieces but squared up the blocks.) And there she is....

     Big. Lots of quilting to be done. But the absolute best-over the top exciting thing is -it's sold.  Will be SOLD - to my friend -an architect to hang in his office. Friends we went out with last night who just wanted to see what I was up to. He walked in and asked who I was making it for. Never expected that. More on the story tomorrow...I must start layering and basting.

     My friend asked me many questions I didn't have good answers to. Artistic answers. I need to think about them, too. And do the work.

     Be creative, my friends! You never know where it might lead to.

  7. This is a WOW! Those shapes that are almost the same, but not quite, are intriguing. It "feels" crisp and clean and lively.
