I am slowly getting back to the studio.
I showed this wall quilt early this month and today I finished the binding. Another UFO completed. I started this in a class with Melody Johnson in November of 2006.
My Mom, Sister, Brother, Me and our families stayed in a house on St George Island, Florida in August of 2003. I fell in love the island and ocean when I was there for a business trip in 2001. I took many photos of the water, sky, beach and family. I am going to use the hand dye fabrics I received from Joanna from SerenityisBliss Blog. When Joanna wrote about the the "stained" grey fabric it reminded me of the photos I took of the waves on the beach as they hit the sand. I signed up for the challenge and Joanna sent me some of her wonderful hand dyes. The challenge is to use Joanna fabrics to make her a postcard. I am also going to use the Tyvek I received from Julaine from Julaine in Fiberspace blog. The sailboat is a free hand sketch and I use my photos do a freehand sketch for the background. Joanna sent enough fabric to make her postcard and a wall quilt. I am going to use the same sketch for both. I hope this challenge gets my creative juices flowing and keeps my mind off my woes.
When I really need a mental break I am sewing string blocks for my two son quilts.
I am also working on my Quilt Studio March 12 X 12 X 12 Journal Quilt.
Have A Great Evening!
