Tangled Roots

After a three days out of the studio, I just had to get in there tonight and play with some scraps. I have some slivers of the fabrics I used in Mother Lode and I got this idea of using them in a 12 X 12 quilt. I think they look like tangle roots. This is not fused or stitched, yet. I think I like that background for this – sort of rich soil looking.

Today was STASH (Some Thursday at Someone’s House). Today it was at Gale’s home. We had a good time chatting and sharing our work and especially hearing all about Terry’s adventures in Cleveland, taping for the Quilting Arts TV show. She prepared a great lunch for us. Always nice to spend a few hours with my friends.

I took these mossy photos in her front yard. I love moss and Portland had a plethora!

Mr C and I are still fighting over which green paint to use. I will keep you posted. We have to make the decision tomorrow.

    Gerrie you constantly amaze and inspire me. I really like what you have been creating and look forward to each new installment -thanks! I love moss, but it is too dry here to get it to grow. When I was at my parents (in Snohomish) over Christmas, I dug up moss and brought it home. My Dad thought I was nuts, although not as bad as when I brought home buttercup starts for my neighbor! The moss lived under a cloche for a while, but now it’s brown, sigh. Time for another trip to the wet side! Have a great weekend.
