I recently finished a long-time UFO! Yippee!  I received a pre-printed sashiko panel and supplies from my good friend Teresa for my birthday not long after I met her. It was a pleasant and unexpected surprise and I was grateful for it. I worked on the panel for a while, getting about half-way through the stitching when I set it aside in a UFO basket not to be touched again for a few years. Sad!! (more…)

Violets

July 9th, 2011 | Posted by Emma in Quilting | Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

My violets are constantly multiplying…a chore when they start filling up their pots and need to be divided…

A really messy job Tiny pot from a garage sale Pot that I painted
Pot that Brennan painted! Another pot I painted Beautiful violets!

All those violets were an inspiration to my next art quilt/challenge project. The challenge is from my small group to use exclusively solid colored fabrics in a project. A tough one for all of us, since we love our prints so much! I keep getting tempted to look for some bridging floral print, but I’m resisting the urge and keeping this one simple. I hope it will be elegant in its simplicity…not boring!

I do love the way the solids show off the folding technique!

This was just a sneak peek, finished project yet to come!
