The Bee Quilt and more~
 
I decided to blog this morning, it's -7 here with the windchill factor of -25! Really!!! Great day to sit by the fireplace and get some projects done. 
 
I finished my bee quilt and decided to make the background a little warmer with a white on off white fabric I have had for sometime now.  Perfect choice!  See what you think. 
 
I love this fabric, the yellows are V&Co Color theory and the grays are Amy Ellis Modern Neutrals which you can get yardage from Spool Quilt from the link below.
 
I can't wait to get this one on the longarm.  I have a few ideas on how to turn this into a really cool wall hanging.  More on that later when the longarm frees up of other projects!
 
I have more yardage of these fabrics coming in this colorway, but they have other colors which I may need to invest in later! 
 
 
 
 So I usually have about three projects going at one time,
 
and I have to admit I enjoy jumping back and forth from each as I get bored easily with just trying to finish one project.

 
 
The oriental quilt is still on the longarm, and I will be getting to that maybe today, but really have to be in the mood to finish this one.  I have so many ideas I want to quilt on it, so as the artistic flow takes over it will be a process worth waiting for.
 
 
 
 
 
The wine collage is also still on the art table.  I have painted paper and am ready to dive in, just have not had the courage yet to do so.  I love the work of Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson, she is quite the collage artist.  I want to finish this project sometime soon.  Go check out her collages.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So what's the third project ~
 
Well I am off and running again on creating my series of GIS quilts!
I may even be using some of my newly dyed fabric! This one is the 3rd in the Series:
 
“Earth in Three Bands: R, G, B” 
Richet Structure some call it Eye of the Sahara
It's been in the newspapers and there seems to be a bit of a mystery of how it was really formed.
Interesting read (link below).  Go to Google Earth and see what it looks like.  Amazing features will make this remote sensed photo turn into another amazing quilt!
 
 
 Last but not least!  Stay warm today even it if means watching videos.  Here's a great one to peruse.
 

Jamie Wallen Thread Fusion 1

 
I took a class with Jamie about 10 years ago when I first purchased my longarm.  I am going to refresh some techniques for my up coming GIS quilts.
 
 
Stay tuned for more creativeness.
 
What's next ~ a pottery class, how to paint landscapes with watercolors?  Go and create! We all have a creative side, let yours come out and play!
