Quilt in process
The fabric..new and old.embroidered napkins, old furnishing fabric and some sample gingham.I decided that I needed an automated project with defined edges to kick start me. I have the girls quilts lined up to make but because they are full of 'ideas' and take a bit of thinking, I havnt got started properly.So this technical piecing is what I need to get me going I think..lets see if it works.
Its going in the upstairs spare room that was once Mackers. It is a very pretty attic room that will be fun to dress up.
My personal assistant Spacerocket(our cat) hinders more than helps she is passionate about paper and fabric and rips it up and lies on it at every available opportunity.
Sitting on top of my pattern box..looking determined and awkward at the same time.
I was drafting a pattern yesterday for a skirt..(drafting sounds better than copying around and sticking extra bits of paper around the edges where I made mistakes:-D) and she helped me-not.
If I was a painting..it would be one of myself in absence, represented by the things and people I love.
There would be some paintbrushes, a computer and a Bible. Tropical plants with bright flowers and wide leaves that capture rain would wind up the frame.
It would have hearts and cowboy boots.
