It maybe March but..


Last week I spent some time answering questions for an interview feature about my NEW BOOK!!  (just in case you missed it 😊).
One of the questions asked was about what is coming next. My truthful answer is that I am looking forward to time at home with my sewing machine, doing some important stuff, but also having some fun. 

Quilt Routes

With that in mind I have joined the Contemporary Quilt Groups Journal Quilt Challenge again. Not having done it last year it seems a good way to get into a routine of playing and experimentation. 

Quilt Routes

First time doing this was 2014 and I thoroughly enjoyed doing these, printing with a gelli plate.. You can see them all here.

In 2015 I used up fabric from my stash to do some landscape triptychs. Confession time, I thought I was being clever doing one piece that I split into three but I was only cheating myself because I was just covering old ground and as a result the process was not as satisfying as the year before. They can be seen here. 

The pieces that I did in 2016 are not yet complete. The quilts are done but I do need to finish the edges, perhaps put them together as one bigger piece. 
I didn't even finish blogging them but they can be seen in my Flickr photo gallery.(See icon in side bar.)

Quilt Routes

This year the format is 7 x 9 inches with your own set theme.
Florals is the theme I have chosen. It is just as much about the design of the motifs as it is about the technique used. So here is Jan's offering and I can say that Feb and March are already done so look out for those.
Until next time...

  2. So inspirational! It's bleak here today in the Lake District, so I'll just look & look at your work nd not out of the window!
