RSC color of the month is red, and I love it! Out came the scrap bin and I made the little sweater by appliqueing a strong woman on it!
|all the colors so far|
I spent several days this week sorting my finished quilts... many many of them that were jumbled from the move. I put them in categories, and number order for lectures, and found a couple UFO's mixed in!
One of them started at our rental when we were were house hunting, a painted bird Spring piece, I finished! More pics next week when I can get the best lighting, but this is a teaser...
click on the image to see quilting and painted bird, but I hope to do a post on this next Friday! I had a lot of fun finishing it with special binding, quilting etc this week.
I found red scrappy squares and diamonds too... and wanted to turn them into something lovely...
what fun to make improv flying geese, by the easiest technique I've ever done. I made it up so I'll give more details when it's finished. I plan to add on the flying geese style blocks with free form curved insets.
I found a painted scrap of fabric, cut it into these two pieces, painted in faces to turn the abstract scene into two goddesses. I did stick a couple appliques on too. Then quilted them and they've been looking over the studio this week.
I think the stencil I did over the painted piece had the curliques that turned into breasts
|just a few from the collection|
I chose fabrics for 14 tumbling blocks in red and have been stitching while watching tv this week.
I cut my own papers out of stiff printer paper.
last item to share this week, my kaleidoscope hexie blocks in red!
I asked my resident mathematician to help me figure out why my blue blocks cupped.
I think the designer was not correct when she said measure 1 3/16" from the side to mark cutting lines... I changed it to 1 1/8th" and when the two 5" squares are face to face, mark in from top right corner, in from lower left corner, and cut on diagonal. Sew the straight edges, open, and make three sets for each hexie. The colors so far...
So red was energizing for me, in a stressful week of decisions about the vaccines. I painted also and watched cool videos like history of how the first trousers were made and used, animals called capybaras
and listening to the wonderful Detective chopra series on audio books.
