Work and an Idea


I've been working on Urban Utility II this week.  I wanted to quilt it differently than Urban Utility I, but my attempts involved a lot of seam ripping.  It will be a little different, but not much.


Seems it may be time to clean my machine.


Did I mention I love my new walking foot?


And then there is this...


I am going to attempt to turn this drawing I did last night, or a version of it, into a wall quilt.  Totally not sure how I am going to make it happen, but I feel like I need to branch out a bit with my quilting and try my hand at an art quilt.  I am absolutely going to make it up as I go. Wish me luck! 

And don't forget, my quilt giveaway is still going on.  Click HERE to enter.

Why not much different? I'll bet that if you looked at some Frank Lloyd Wright photos or a few Picassos, you'd get some nifty ideas. Hey, I started a group of Facebook and you should stop by and join (hint, hint). :)
