One Inukshuk and forty five (million) tiny rocks later...ta-da!!!
|This will be 18" x 36" when it's finished.|
To my relief, all the bits and pieces look somewhat like rocks. *whew*
Wanna see how I work? It's a bit messy!
The lights are thrown onto my desk, and the mediums are thrown over the dark pile on my chair. I needed to move between tracing and ironing, so my chair wasn't missed.
Bright spots and shadows form each rock. My inspiration photo helped keep me on track, even though I wasn't directly copying it.
Now...how will I quilt it???
Yep. My brain will now keep me awake, night after night, imagining possibilities until something feels right.
Meanwhile, I've started working on this whimsical customer quilt.
This already has the binding stitched onto the front. It is not tacked to the back, so I was able to flip it out and use it to load the quilt.
Stitching in the ditch around the frames will help prevent puckers on the back.
I'm using a variety of fillers and lines behind the leaves.
I may do the veins in a thicker, brighter thread so they can be seen. I think this is too timid for such a fun piece.
Speaking of pretty flowers...(ha! graceful transition, hey?)
The bulbs came from my grandmother, and they only bloom once a year. It is always sweet (and a little sentimental) to see them unfold.
