Here is my Plain Spoken top! I plan to either have it quilted like the one in the book, "Modern Quilt Workshop" Kerr & Ringle. You can actually see that if you go to the Amazon hyperlink & look at the "Search inside" feature - I believe it is page 11. Or hand quilt randomly placed and sized circles... (Idea A has a stronger possibility - but I have big scraps, so I plan to make a similar quilt & that one may get the circles...)
My friend & I took a class on Saturday at the LQS on Ricky Timms's Convergence quilts. This is my friends...
The is her "focus" fabric.
Here is mine - an Homage to The Great Barrier Reef. I knew that I wanted to do an "arty" quilt for the Great Barrier reef... That got cemented when I found the Hand dyed fabric about a year ago... I have been planning on doing the Convergence quilt for the past year, too - but I never got around to it - you have to clean off a good space literally and time wise... So when I saw a slass was being offered I signed up!
Last night since the table in my stewdio was still cleared and my big mat was out, I decided to cut the background for a quilt in progress... Instead of 3.5 inch strips, I cut the 3 inches... So I trimmed the I Spy's accordingly! It will still work. I guess that proves that I need the TV on to quilt!
FYI - I got a B in my Statistics class (YAY! - Huge sigh of relief!) & my next class starts tomorrow night - something about healthcare administration... That was one bit of good news that I have been needing!
I hope to drop of the Kid Quilts on Friday - work & school have been far too hectic....
