|Final Sewn Down Version - Ready for quilting|
|original sketch - was in my sketch book for 5 years|
I know that sometimes quilters look at cool art quilts and think - wow - wish I made that, wish I was that creative. Most of the time, they are that creative. What they aren't is willing to put in the time that a good art quilt takes. I used to be one of those people. Then I realized that good designs didn't just happen by magic. I know now they happen most often by hard work.

My latest project proves that - I'm still not quite sure how good it is - but I do know that in the last month I worked hard on it. This was my March assignment from Elizabeth Barton's Masterclass. This month we were exploring line. I had had the original sketch in my sketchbook for the last 5 years and I was glad to give it a go. It will fit in nicely with my arches series.
|Blocked out version - this is just pinned to my wall - no sewing|
|background pieced the rest is just pinned|
|This was a lot closer to my original vision - almost there|
Next month I know I'm not doing a piece so big!
