I am even keeping up my resolution to blog more regularly, at least when I have something to blog about.
My theme of red kites for the Popular Patchwork Square Dance mini quilts continues. The technique for this month was freeform cutting. As this is something I have done for years I decided that I would include the use of embossed metal pieces and some feathers made form vanishing muslin (which I believe is now called Thermogauze). I was really please with the way they turned out and also with not having to wash away soluble fabric and then dry the piece!
Also finished was the last of my JQs, this time using sheers. Took me a long time to get this one done as it was not my favourite technique.
On the more traditional quilting side I am doing a block of the month called Sampler of Psalms. Block one was the Tree of Life.
... and block two is Birds In The Air
I am not going to buy anything new for this project so hopefully I can finish it with fabrics that have been languishing in my stash for many years.
Deciding that resolutions are usually made to be broken I have decided, like some others of you out there to set myself goals for 2010. One is to do something creative every day and another is to make sure that I do some of my OU work every day. I have been somewhat lax in this lately and now have to try to remember the vocabulary that I have already done. So off to try to do some of both of the above.
Until next time, happy creativity.
