Men & Quilts!
Have you seen this video- hilarious!
Has me thinking about a new body of work tho featuring men! but that will have to wait till after my2 symposium entries are done.
Piece one progressing well ...lots of fusible applique and handpainting/sunprinting.....Piece 2 starting my transfer of a rough sketch to white prepped cotton tonight when the kids are in bed. I would love to piece it, but it will probably be fusible applique given my timeframe. Only 20 weekend days before Deadline of entries being due! How's your going?
I might finish my plus quilt and plus/cross quilt soon after too.
With my daughter off to school in Aug and a number of 5 year old birthdays, I've been busy making art folders, book bags, and pillowcases. I purchased Cori Dantini's Built for adventure panels after seeing some of Cori's other panels on Adrienne's "on the windy side" blog.
Alas I thought I had taken a photo ( but can't find it) of the pillowcase I made using my favourite of the panels ( the girls with wings swinging on what looks like a pohutukawa tree saying Dare to fly.. A perfect message for my daughters wee friend who is a super kiddo. So imagine if you can pieced random pinks and greens to the right of the panel with borders of Kaffe Faset on top and bottom with a mini pink pompom braid trim above the grass. All backed with pink and butterfly fabric as she loves butterflies.
I don't envisage finding trouble using the remainder of the panels as more pillowcases for the present cupboard or for quilt backing inserts.
