A Finished Quilt

Just so you don't think that the only things I do are my daily, weekly and monthly projects, I've got a finished quilt to show you!

This is one of those unplanned projects made from lots of leftovers and scraps. I don't remember when I started making the blocks, but it was at least three years ago. Every time I had leftover green , blues and reds I would cut them into strips, make four patches from most of them, add borders around the four patches, then put them in a bag to save. It was one of those things that I would do when I just needed some mindless sewing. This summer I took all the blocks (3 different sizes) with me when we went to the lake for girls week. This was the layout I worked out, sewed them all together while at the lake and then brought it home to languish again. I finally decided to quilt it and be done with it. The picture isn't great, the edges really aren't wavy, but thats the best I could do with it stuck to the design wall. I have no idea what I will do with it, for now it will just be added to the 'pile'.

The Weekly Leaf

This weeks leaf was plucked from my slowly dying garden, it's a cantaloupe leaf. I used the gelli plate to print it.

  1. Thank you for continuing to inspire me!

  2. Love Leftovers! It's the type of piece to keep my interest.

  3. Your leftovers quilt has such energy, it just seems to sparkle. The daily paper is looking fabulous and I always love the leaf. I thought it was a geranium.

  4. Your void is so magnetic! It is fun to see your leftovers quilt with the pops of red too. The 2/3's daily paper is so painterly. I like how the white space shows off the irregular shapes and full colored blocks at the same time. You have such a gift for composition.

  5. Your work and projects are inspiring.

  6. What a great use of leftovers - the quilt is very appealing.

  7. The Daily Paper collection is crazy cool!! I love it.
