I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Progress this Weekend

First things first.  It's snowing.  This is actually good, because it's finally warm (enough to snow).  It's been mostly -20 degrees celsius here for quite awhile now.  But, Phil didn't see his shadow, so Spring is on the way, right?  Right?

Here's my #10 piece I finished for the UFO Challenge.  Nothing spectacular.  Just a flat panel that has a small amount of quilting.  Still, my friend Troy loves it.  He also bought the big Kaleidoscope quilt and ordered another custom quilt. 



Here's what I worked on all weekend: my piece for the Monochromatic Challenge.  I started with a drawing I thought would be a wholecloth quilt, but I wanted color.  And a little color led to more and more.  I kept trying colors in different ways on my drawing.  Anyway, the third pic is where I ended this weekend.  I have 7 more of those little scrolly feathers to cut out.  I'll take my time and work on it through the week so as to not reinjure my wrist.  These are raw edge fused applique.  I'll be stitching on top of these.  As you can see, I've got plenty more pieces to cut out besides the feathers and then I have all the stitching to do.  I'm actually not sure I'll get this done by the end of the month.  I'm referring to Ricky Timms' Rhapsody quilt methods for help.
