sunday settle in

Productive weekend, fiber wise.  No housework disrupted the flow!  Well, maybe a bit, but nothing more.  We had balmy weather and I kept the dogs outdoors as much as possible.  We went exploring – finding vole tunnels and the like.  Lots of mud will not diminish my canines’ joy in the springlike temperatures.

One more row and this little piece will be complete.  DSCN9383I’ve had a blast putting it together and am almost sorry that I’m in the end zone.  Working without sketches or diagrams is liberating.  It’s the way that I’ve always created, but I do envy those who can map out a piece from soup to nuts before cutting into a single piece of fabric!  (time and materials are not wasted!)

I’ve also started a new piece based on all of the commotion around the American Patchwork and Quilting series It All Adds Up.  I am piecing a ‘Grand Total’ much in the spirit of the Pat Bravo quilt shown in the April 2016 issue.  My background is composed of neutrals, of which I have plenty!  I’m still auditioning fabric for the main portion of the design.  This quilt appealed to me the very moment I laid eyes on it!  It features what I love most about piecework – the puzzling aspect of achieving the right layout from hundreds of 3″ squares.  I’ve really tried to stay away from ‘cookie cutter’ quilt patterns, but this one held me tightly in its grip – it was non negotiable!

I am really hoping to get my etsy shop back up and running in the next week.  Wish me luck.
