137: Quick Pix
just some snapshots of life around here…things are cooking up on the Jay McCarroll quilt. Next entry should have some pictures of that!
Some of my latest acquisitions….all destined to be in some kind of publication, either a magazine of my book…..there is a mix of Free Spirit, Michael Miller, and Moda fabrics in this bunch…needs more DARKS, huh?
A glimpse at my other big project that was almost completed before the Jay McCarroll fabrics came in…Hoping to get this one in a magazine soon. It is made entirely out of Moda’s Urban Couture line by Basic Grey. Interesting fabric! Wasn’t quite sure how I felt about it, but I like it more and more now..And I must admit, I really like the quilt I am creating out of it, even though it doesn’t feel really “me”…(but it must be a part of me, n’est pas?)
I made this bag years ago, and I love how it looks just hanging outside…It is getting faded as it is an old red, and I am sure not very colorfast, and I think it sat outside too long this summer, but it has a patina that I just love. Mimi was eight when I made it, so that makes it three years old.
And last, but not least… is another Round Robin from the all male quilting yahoo group that I visit occasionally. This one is Paul in Canada’s and I added the final round with the squares and split corners. I really don’t like “white” in my work all that much, so it was quite a challenge to me. And for me, personally it is too “rainbow-y”….but that is what he started out with, and this is what he gets…It is actually on its way back to him so he should be getting this anyday…Hope he likes it!
