Nim took a break from his busy chewing schedule to pose with this latest quilt. Our time is precious right now because basically there are two current weather options in North Bend: pouring rain or not raining. The "not raining" times are very short still.
I am extra motivated to get these tops moving because I am kind of in an art quilt mood. This will be a new direction for me. I saw this workshop I would have loved to take that was all about making art work in quilting and a friend of mine makes these amazing works of art based on her travels to Africa. I am ready to see what I can do.
This Japanese Maple has held so many quilts for photos. What a good little tree.
The back was a basic pink flannel. I have decided to feature each block on its own as well so you can see the cute fabric.
I saw this quilt on Instagram that reminded me perhaps I should try and develop my free motion quilting styles. I always default to the same thing.
It works. :)
These little monkeys...
My other two tops got their borders this weekend. One needs a back, but both should be on the machine soon. Then I can try and clean up the fabric mess.
I have now expanded to 3 fabric bins. :| This is a bit of a crisis with the size of my living space. Time to stick to stash busting for a while.
In other important news, I will leave you with 2 vital pieces of information:
- The X-Files will be returning (again).
- The Giraffe Cam is back! And it looks like they will have it up every Tuesday.
