Extreme to serene
The black, white and green quilt top is done. I am really happy I decided to put in the black shashing/inner borders. I am going to do a black binding to finish the design. Now, I just have to make decisions about the backing and the quilting. This is going to finish up at 52" x 52".
After working with all that exciting black and white, I decided I needed to work on something more serene. Yesterday, I went on a quilt play date with a really gifted quilter, Sharon. She taught me how to do an inset circle that is so easy, I just want to make tons of them. They will go in my favorite list along with flying geese, churn dash and friendship stars. This afternoon, I grabbed some batiks and built this small block. It is about 8" x 11". I am going to experiment more with blocks that convey the same mood and see what I can create.
Tomorrow, Tom and I are working a wedding event to see if we can pick up some new wedding clients. I will miss being in my studio, but I always enjoy meeting excited brides to be.
Have a great Sunday, and joyful quilting, everyone.
