Keeping cool and sewing

After ten days of over 100 degree temps we are experiencing a slight cool down, todays forecast is for 98 degrees. To keep cool I've been staying in the studio sewing and this is the view from my sewing machine.

I've pulled out bags of scraps and have been stitching them together.

I've gotten borders on a few.

It will eventually become a donation quilt. Right now I'm a bit bored with it.

The black and white circle gelli prints that I showed about a month ago here, have been sewn together. I printed some red on white and a few more white on black circles to get it all together.

The Weekly Leaf

This weeks leaf was printed using the gelli plate and a ginko stencil from Stencil Girl.

The print, the scrap fabric used and a print made from the paint on the stencil.

Week #27

Another row was added today and I really like how the back looked as I was ironing it.

  1. The black and white (with red) is stunning!

  3. Your weekly leaf is great as always! I always love the depth and texture in the detail shots.

  4. You've inspired me to get out some UFO's and make them into charity quilts. Love your leaf, as always and your black and white.

  5. Like others who have commented before I find the black and white gelli print piece particularly striking. I think it is the offset circle segments and how the design results in a meandering serpentine pattern that grabs. So simple - yet so nuanced at the same time.
