This summer I have been GSD - Getting S#*! Done. Here is my little Show and Tell of what I have been working on. I am happy to say that I have three finished quilts to show for it. First up, "Request and Dedication". Also Known As "the record quilt" or "the spinning plate quilt".
I learned a tremendous amount while working on this quilt and I am very glad it is finished.
"Strung Along II, Log Cabin Var." is string pieced onto a muslin foundation and is the second in a series. "Strung Along" being the first. I am sure I will make more of these. I love the improvisational piecing, and working with scraps of fabric. Scrappy quilts sing to me in a way that more planned quilts do not.
And just in the last few weeks I made this little river/mountain quilt. This may be the closest I ever get to making a landscape quilt. It is a montage of snapshots of the Happy Valley in which I live.
This little landscape has already sparked a series, as I have pieced together another top based on the river/mountain premise.
Now, if only my desk were cleaned off and my paperwork was filed away, I would really feel as if I accomplished something.
