But I fell in love with my little process for making Geese and I was off to the races. I started making this with input from friends on flickr, I got kinda carried away. I mean, who doesn't like talking about their making? I spent a week or so, putting up photos and saying "hey, look at what I just did?"
The strippy style quilt is also something I've done but hated as I thought it was boring.. by piecing the strips I got to show my "girly" side with the Quilt Gate by Robert Kaufman prints
There are so many details that it's really impossible to show every little one. Its a vanity, I know. I put them in for me and I quilt little details in for me.
These are my initials...:) and the year.. and I gave myself a star. Good Job! :)
If you don't get to see it in person, most of this is really lost. I just think that when a person gets to have this quilt as their own, there should be "details of love" for them to discover.
I even pieced the back, something I rarely do, but I think it worked great. Last year Cherri and I did a 7" strip swap of Red/Aqua fabrics. I used quite a few of that stash to make this quilt.
The Red Pearl Bracelet is from Cool Cottons here in Portland, Marie is pretty awesome. She picks great stuff for her store.
I joined the Precious QAL over at flickr. A QAL to encourage us to use our horded favorite fabrics.
I broke out my Munki, cake rock beach and Flea Market Fancy, etc...
to make these Cinemascope Blocks- or at least, that's what I'm calling them... something like (in my memory) used to be on movie posters. "filmed in Cinemascope" I have no idea where I'm gong with it, but my last project worked so well..... I'm starting a new one.
