Chicago IQF

Adventure in FIBland--the Tollway was solid construction, the signage was misleading, potholes, snow, ugh. But here's the picture of my quilt. It will be on display at Long Beach, CA over the summer and then I'll get it back before the Hall of Fame game.

I read all the artist statements on the Journal Quilts (most people don't look at anything on exhibit for longer than 15 seconds, I've noticed) and studied the composition and construction of the JQs and the major juried exhibits. I'm either slightly better or far, far worse than I think I am.

Despite a good 8 hours of sleep last night, my brain is still swirling with colors.

Finished: Sequined coffee mug

I should have taken a picture of the back; I left the knots showing and drew a radish as a signature; Andy saw that side first when he unwrapped it and was surprised to learn it was "reversible." Häh! It's about 9" x 6".

About halfway through, I wondered if this would be cuter as a fabric applique, with a few sequins for accent.

Now I need something new to do.

Work in Progress?

I decided I hated the fake "Carolina Lily" on my paper fabric, and they peeled right off.

Tulips, much better. The Brewers are 5-1 after a week; I really enjoy listening to Bob Uecker call the games while I play with fabric.

I have been too busy, making cakes and going to parties.

I do not know where the stitching will go on the flowers.
