Busy 'til the Bobbin Ran Out!

>> Monday, August 9, 2010

I'm in a creative swing right now and my table is pretty much in a shrinking state of cutting space! But I really like what's happening, so I'm leaving the mess alone.

I have been working again at this quilt. It is finished in my mind's eye. I am having a lot of fun discovering new techniques as each idea gets ready to come alive in fabric.

These fabric piles are for {from the top}- letters - sky - sun - and leftovers that might still help out.

I ran out of bobbin thread into my last sun ray. It can wait. I am so happy with how it looks so far. Of course, the middle circle isn't attached yet, so it may not end up looking like this at all!

I did start adding the orange sashing to the Mystery Basket quilt top. You can see my blocks set out in last week's design wall post.

I'm pretty confident that I have enough orange to do the sashing. Not too sure if I have enough for the inner border. We'll see when I get there!

I took alot of process shots while working this week. {Especially of my letters and the sun rays!} I planning some photo posts with a little bit of commentary over the next week or so. I took the "Process Pledge" this week, finally. I read about it during the Blogger's Quilt Festival, but never took any real action on it. Now, I have! You'll see more step by step posts, thinking posts - and some mistakes even {aka 'design challenges"!} - as I share my process for some of my projects.

Check out more design walls through the links at Judy's blog.

With Joy,

The Imagine top is coming along beautifully. I hope you have enough orange to do the sashing too. It makes everything pop and I love POP!

Wow - that's pretty - love the way you are piecing it - plus I like the way you used text. Its something that I really wanted to do for a long time!

Good selection and progress on the mystery basket project. I sure like the way your sun is rising! Can you give us a hint on what the next pattern will be in your Imagine project?

Looking very imaginative, Sarah! I like the sun very much too, and the sashing in orange really makes the baskets sing. My sister never says she makes mistakes--they are "design elements", LOL!
