there is a definate theme there isn't there? rust, circles, hurricanes...with a bit of red creeping in...
and here is the first piece of 07: VERY different!!
the first baby quilt i've made in i can't remember when! my husband's niece had her first baby a couple of weeks ago and auntie claire decided it would be her job to introduce the little sweetie to color! we haven't met her yet as they live in st. louis, but hopefully we will before she starts school!
it had been so long since i made a traditional quilt, i wondered whether or not i'd even remember how! i had 9 patch blocks leftover from swaps i did in another lifetime, so had fun using those.... in fact it was so much fun i have taken out all my dad's shirts and pajamas i've had tucked away for the last 6 years since he died and it may be time to do that quilt....it feels sort of like *cleansing my palette* before embarking on a new year of art quilts.
i've thought about making goals/resolutions and about all i definatly know that i want to do is at least make Some work that is Big. (anything over 45" qualifies as big in my book). there are those that say the space you have to work in influences size. since i am blessed to have a huge studio, with an 8 foot square design wall i don't think i fit in that category. the simple fact is i just naturally tend to work smaller. after hearing WORK BIG for a week last summer at qsds, i have decided to make a whole hearted attempt to do just that.
hope we all have a wonderfully productive and succesful 2007~!
