Here is a sketch that I made from this photo, taken when driving into Seattle.
In my master class we needed to do two sketches, one showing depth and one that was a flattened image. We could choose either one to make a quilt. I chose the flattened one.
I had some fat quarters of fabric designed my Jay McCarroll, the quilting Project Runway winner. My daughter Lisa gave them to me a while back. Here was my first mock up. I was not happy with that lower left corner so I switched up some fabrics.
Here is the final layout, on the sewing machine.
Another quilting image:
And here is the backside. Quite neat, if I do say so. That is a shadow from the sewing machine on the right.
I had a busy and lovely week-end. Mr C and I celebrated our 51st wedding anniversary on Saturday. On Sunday, we had a family dinner at Lisa and Clay’s, our new meeting place. Yesterday, we checked out the annual Art in the Pearl.
Tomorrow, I have to get up early and pull myself together to pick up Elin Noble and drive her to the guild meeting. She is our guest speaker and workshop leader. She is doing an indigo dying workshop, which I passed on.
