|the final design with 10 blocks|
I looked and looked to find just the right setting fabrics, the dragonfly is gold on cream, the corners are my fave metallic gold on white swirls, and the border fabric is a batik that made me think of the "deco" style.
I think it's going to look very pretty quilted in metallic gold with crystals or beads on it!
Can you believe it's made with the tiny HST's that most people would have cut and thrown in the trash?
the logs were lots of fun! Some hand dyed fabric, some fall scraps. Some leaf blocks some interesting squares used instead on other blocks, all carefully sewn and put together into a swirl of colors like fall is to me
Then I thought, what about some tiny geese inserted into the border? so out came the scraps and I printed some little paper piecing lines and put on my book
so I have more decisions to make on this one... the border fabric I like best, the blue with bats is no longer available and I only have a fat quarter left. There are not that many blue fall fabrics out there.
Does that happen to you?
so I am assured of lots of sewing fun the next week.
I'll leave you with the thought that covid numbers are high, because our country didn't take action during the first shut down, preferring to pretend this wasn't real... nearly 2 thousand people are going to be dying a day. EVERY day I hear about a friend who is touched by it
PUT ON A MASK! Even republican politicians are now calling for them after they spent time in the ICU because they didn't take this seriously. It's not political even though they've tried to make it so. It's a global HEALTH CRISIS
I am just an older artist, trying to live in peace... sorry for feeling like I have to at least keep saying it here but I pray for guidance daily and am told to use my voice.
