Crop Circles and garden pathways.
I put aside this Kaffe piece I worked on a few weeks ago after not being able to decide how to do the quilting. I've now decided that I'm going to make a number of circles on it as quilting. It's very angular and I think the roundness of the quilting design would be perfect. That's what I'm up to today. Well, that and grocery shopping and laundry, kitchen clean-up(much needed), and
maybe some more work on this. Those lines you see are the original quilting lines I drew with water soluble marker. It's getting spritzed in a while and then I'll work on the all-over circles.
I have been watching Victoria of Bumble Beans make these small pieces that look like garden walkways made of broken tiles and I really wanted to see if I could get one put together quickly for some handwork. I miss doing that and I'm sort of tired of the only other things I've got to work on...(adult ADHD?) Anyway, I have bags of bits and pieces so it took about half an hour to find myself a pleasing arrangement. We'll see how long I can keep up with the applique since my hands are very arthritic feeling lately. Maybe I should learn how to do that on the machine? How hard can it be?
Sorry for the quality of these photos. I think the camera battery is going. Everything looks drab and fuzzy. Maybe it's my eyes.
I spent some time playing around with the arrangement of these baby quilt blocks yesterday as well. They look so bright and cheerful. I really hope the Mom likes the quilt since I know nothing about her and we haven't even met yet. Lets hope it works out. The shower is in April so I'd better get going a little faster. I think I'm just going to tie the heck out of it and say it's done. I think the happy couple are registered at Babies r Us, maybe I can find them something to go with it.
As you all know, I vow never to make another quilt for a baby every time I make another quilt for a baby...sigh.
Back soon with more.
