Well, I spent yesterday writing the text that will print on the little placards that go with my quilts in the show. I got two of the entry forms submitted today. One more to go.
We have a name for the Indian Orange Peel quilt, The Point is the Points. In the write up, I tell about my Mentor challenging me to make the quilt and how my skills weren’t up to it and I would work on it a while, then put it aside and learn a new skill, then pick it up again. I also talked about how my Mentor and I made the same pattern, using much of the same fabric.
And, we have a name for the silk quilt…A Place for Life to Happen. The pics were better than I thought, you just have to blow them up to see the detail. This should be “click-able”.
In my write up about this one, I talked about wanting to find an original subject for a silk whole cloth quilt and that I couldn’t think of a better subject than our home, where we live and where I create. I also talked about my technique because everyone always has questions.
The back. Almost requested that they hang this one with both sides displayed. I love the backs of my quilts. I usually make bold color choices on the back that I wouldn’t make on the front. It’s good practice.
I have one more quilt to submit.
Oh, and the little succulent vignette I showed yesterday? Well, enjoy that because it has to be moved. Too much sun. Late yesterday, I took an old umbrella out and covered it for some shade, but I don’t think that’s a long term solution.
And, I need to start a baby quilt. It feels like I have too much going on to even think about it. But, making baby quilts is all about having fun; babies expect so little from their binkies, so I just need to get started on it. Who knows. There might even be something pieced in the pile of UFO’s, but I hate to do that. I like to think about the baby and the parents while I make a baby quilt.
Everybody have a great Tuesday. Lane
