Skinny Bits

I finished fusing the silk quilt tonight. I felt I needed a little more variety so I created some blocks with skinny bits. I really like them.

Tomorrow, I will add the back and start the quilting.

Mondays are always very busy for me. I usually spend most of the morning sending out Constant Contact e-mails for SDA reps, and I have reports and e-mails to do for the SDA Conference registration. I didn’t get down to my studio until afternoon. Working on this quilt has been such a joy — very spontaneous and I love the colors. I have to have it done and photographed by Friday.

Here is my progress with the 3 x 3s. I know some people think I am nuts, but I love stitching them together, taking my time.

Tomorrow, I have a lunch date with a friend. I am looking forward to it. I have been sort of a hermit lately.

No sketches. Maybe tomorrow.

    I am just in love with the peeks at your quilt. The colors are gorgeous and so vibrant. Your 3×3’s are wonderful! I know the are even more impressive and fun in person. Have a wonderful time tomorrow and the rest of the week.

    I love this new quilt. The colors are wonderful and I can’t help smiling when looking at just these small photos. I’m anxious to see the finished quilt!

    Love the skinny bits! I don’t think you’re crazy to sew together all those 3″ squares either — they are better than the sum of the parts and will look great as one large piece.
