I can't believe that it has been over a month since I posted. Where has the time gone?? I think I just sort of lost direction for a while. I had so many projects I wanted to work on, I couldn't decide which one to work on first. I was also procrastinating about finishing up these two projects I've posted. I kept putting them off because I kept worring that I would mess them up. So instead of working on something, I did nothing. Finally last week I just took a deep breath, told myself I was being rediculous and started working on the birch tree piece.
It looks better in person. I like the way it came out. I want to keep experimenting with making backgrounds the way I did for this piece. The only problem is, I'm running out of strips in my scrap bag and I'm afraid if I tear strips from fabric just for a background, I'll try to plan it too much. Won't know till I try!
This is the second piece. I love the way the sunprinted fabric went so well with this small piece I made in Myrna Giesbrechts class at Quilt University. My art quilt group met last Friday. It was nice to visit and catch up. I finished up the binding to the birch tree piece while we chatted and planned a trip to Nashua and Lowell on November 9. I think my mind is going, there is a quilt show in Nashua that weekend and I can't remember the name of it. I will also finally get to meet Geriann who lives in Mass. She was part of our round robin book project.
