The next stage of the WIP had me wondering what in the world I was thinking when I started this project. This sure is looking hopeless. That white block at the top is the clip on my wall holding it up.
But there is still hope, I should have taken a photo of the next stage before I cut it into the 2 8x8s and 4 4x4s but I was so anxious to see what I had that I forgot. Here they are: the 2 8x8s followed by the 4 4x4s, still WIPS but I’m feeling like there is hope.
Feeling better I started another mixed media piece. This one started by collaging a lot of color on the surface. It’s brighter than this shows on my computer, not sure how it will show up on yours. I’m planning 4 8x8s out of this one, we’ll see how it goes.
In the meantime, I’ve joined the Lighthouse Quilt Guild and through the Guild took a quilting class from Mary Bajcz . What a fun experience and here are two WIPS from that day. The first one is suppose to be a circle but I didn’t cut the curve quit enough…. the fear factor, sewing curves; however, I like it and now to add me to the process, some handwork.
The second one I got a little braver and I’m really liking how this one is evolving.
I also finished a block for the quilt in process that I started a year ago. I thought it was done but once I layed it out I decided I needed 10 more blocks. This is the first of that 10, a wonky star.
I do love wonky. Here is the first log cabin block I did 35 years ago in a quilting class. The teacher told me I had to “cut perfect strips, it was the only way to make a log cabin block.” My response to that….
I loved it, she didn’t. I decided quilting wasn’t for me and didn’t do another until the one I started a year ago. I’ve done a lot of experimenting with quilting since I got back to stitching. Still finding my way but having a great time doing it.
I think I may need to start another blog for my dailies. This is already way to long and I should post those daily. Something to think about.
