My creative accomplishments, week one, 2009:
This is a block for Kim, the first month of Sew Connected 2, my virtual quilting bee. I call it “Blue Hawaii” because that’s what I see in it. Must be the palm like batik and the one tropical floral batik… I almost did not have enough fabric for her 12.5″ block, and that dictated the choice of an improvisation style rather than a traditional block design, but I really like it!
I hope Kim likes it too! I also finished the Winter Wonderland Table Runner, first blogged about on 12/31/08
Terrible photos, but it is winter in Iowa, what can I say…
I love the striped binding, it makes the design. This is a runner of my own design, like the Jolly Holly Table Runners I made for Christmas. I finished this at my friend Michelle’s house the other night. I’m used to Maggy (my cat) immediately curling up on any fabric item I set down for more than 3 seconds. But, Michelle doesn’t have a cat. When I finshed the binding, I set it on the floor next to me to retirieve my camera. When I returned, not four minutes later, people, and I found this…
How are your creative exploits for 2009 coming along?
