Some doodles from my sketch book...a combination of pastels, coloured pencils, and water colours-
Doodling these right before I leave to head home marks the transition. When I arrive I spend about an hour practicing free motion quilting before working on specific projects. Today I quilted this...this is its original orientation but I think it works hung in other directions too. This came out of the symposium I attended in July. My intent with the quilt design was to mimick the slanted shapes...it kinda turned out and it kinda didn't...i.e. I like the design but in some spots it doesn't compliment the top design. I'm going back over the red lines to make them stand out more...I should have used a heavier weight in red thread but I can't spend another cent so I had to make do.
I was going to stay home tomorrow but then I remembered I wanted to take this to the LAFTA (Louisville Area Fiber & Textile Artists) meeting tomorrow night, so I will go back up in the afternoon and either put a facing on it or an escape hatch finish to complete it in time for show and tell.
