Awhile back, I needed some graphic design work for a magazine quilt submission. I had designed four blocks and each block had two braided herringbone sections. I was able to get as far as this:
Terri was able to get it to this point, where each segment of the block was "exploded"--just what I needed.
Next up, this top has been sitting in a stack for what seems like forever. I'm not sure exactly what was holding me up from completing it. I just was never sure what its final outcome should be--pillow? mini quilt? It ended up being a mini, 22" x 22". It's made from a set of Oakshott cottons called "elements" (at least that is what I think they are called--I'm not sure that this range is even available anymore). All the colors are "shot" with white thread, giving them a chalky pastel look.
I ended up doing some easy straight line quilting, which sure didn't take very long, which then made me wonder why I had waited so long! Anyway, I'm giving it away!
And...Mark has been busy in his glass shop as well. He had two custom orders and they are so spectacular that I had to share them. They are 12" platters made from dichroic glass. Photos do not do them justice. These platters are simply stunning.
I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF. Have a lovely weekend.
