1 Down 11 to Go - Off the Wall Friday


Slabs 34 "by 44" - rough applique - machine quilted - hand dyed fabric



Here is a little secret that you didn't know about me.  My day off each week is Thursday - purposely  - since even if I didn't get time all week to be in my studio, at least I have  that day to get something done to post that night here.  At least Thursday was my day off - for the month of February its Saturday.  sighhhhh - Off the Wall Sunday just doesn't have the same ring - grin.  So that means that for the next month I need to come home each night and make sure I get some studio time in.


This is not a bad thing.  Discipline and focus are essential to getting better and who doesn't want to get better?


Now all that said - I did manage to work a couple nights this week to finish up my January's assignment.  Am I in love with it??  No.  Do I hate it - No.

Its just 1 down and 11 to go.



So what have been up to creatively?

I really enjoyed seeing this quilt. I'm a very keen free motion quilter and I like to see the fmq having a staring role. The dyeing is great too as these colours are not easy. What colours did you use? Was is a pale mustard yellow and rose brown?
Now, I'm going to try and work out how to do this link thing!
