Not So Simple Geometry

I finally finished the quilt that I started a while back. Last week when I was sick, I got a lot of the hand stitching finished. I have named it Not So Simple Geometry.


Here is a close-up:


I am quite happy with this as my first experiment in this series I have in my mind. I am planning the next, but also have in mind a quilt using some of the photos I took in Seattle- of reflections in high rises.

Before I do any more quilting, I am finishing the organization of the studio. I finally got the black felt design wall done today. Tomorrow I will work on the screen printing table and the ironing table. I need to hang some quilts and then I will take some photos to share.

Mr. C is finally getting some full spectrum lighting in my office area. As the days get shorter and darker, I will need some better light. Stephanie and I are going to work on a better storage for the kid’s toys. We need to weed out some stuff that they have outgrown. I’ll be so neat and organized that I won’t be able to work for fear of messing it up – Ha!

Now, I am going to go upstairs and watch the much anticipated Studio 60 on Sunset Strip on Mr C’s High Def TV.

    Well, you made the geometry look simple enough! It is lovely.
    Can’t wait to see your studio photos!!

    Quilt is lovely! I have been mustering up courage for years to put one together. I sew, but have yet to quilt.
    Followed you here from TGB… when I saw the “Crazy for Fiber” in your header, my first thought was to recommend my favorite cereal: Post Grape Nuts Trail Mix Crunch!

    I was so happy to see this quilt last week. It looks even better in person!

    I loved the first episode of Studio 60–think it’s a winner!

    Oh gee…you and Mel. I missed it as we are STILL without a satellite dish at the farm (since last Wednesday when we got hit by lightening). Tomorrow is when the guy is supposed to be out to replace it. I guess it really doesn’t matter since I had an ice-pick migraine last night and was in bed (after 2 Vicodins and a Benadryl) by 7pm…

    Love the new piece….I need to get off this computer and go finish putting stuff away in the studio….

    Oh, dad and Janet went back to Nova Scotia yesterday so I am free and clear until the 18th of Oct. when I head off to northern MI for the Fabrications retreat with Desi Vaughn, Peg Keeney, Cathy (Arnett) and Kathie Briggs…..

    Then home to pack for AQT!!!!!

    Very nice! It’s very dynamic…that neutral background is fantastic…I like the hand-stitched effects, too.
