Be Positive

My latest project. Can’t decide if it’s done (about 45″ square) as a wall hanging or if I’ll make it float on a solid color as a bed-sized quilt. I’ve been thinking it would float surrounded by Kona Cotton Espresso. Thoughts?

Galaxies

Still working on this one – I’m hand quilting it (my first attempt at hand vs machine quilting.) I used scrap slivers from another project. When it came together it reminded me of the NASA photos of space, hence the name.

Green Scrappy Quilts

This is from my wall of green scrappy “made fabric” from a few months ago. This was the ongoing -and apparently unending- task of trying to use up all my scraps for a useful purpose. I got pretty far on using a large portion of green tiny bits and came up with the idea to make a traditional Double Wedding Ring pattern as a companion piece to the star below, which I made last year. I like the contrast of the orderly traditional block pattern with the chaos of the green scrappy made-fabric. Both are around 36-42″ square.

Finished and Photographed

I finished this a while ago but only recently got around to photographing it. I’m not sure what I want to title it yet. It features my fascination of creating blocks from random tiny scraps leftover from other projects . It’s one of my favorite things I’ve ever made!
