I'm currently working on the background and expect to get it finished this afternoon! It's such a beautiful sunny day today so I'll have a great walk to the fabric store later where I can pick up some fabric for the binding. I hope to have a Friday finish.
Another way I get myself through the winter is by taking workshops. This coming Saturday my local guild is having a workshop with Local Art Quilter Maggie Vanderweit.
Maggie was one of the first people I met when I moved to town but this will be my first workshop with her. It's on curves wedges and wonky log cabins. Here are some of the fabrics I'm planning on working with.
I'll probably add some greys and blues to the mix, and maybe a pattern or two. I'm also planning on using these same fabrics to try out some of the techniques in the curved piecing lessons by Jean Wells in "American Patchwork and quilting.
The following Saturday I'll be going to a Modern Melon workshop with Sue Forbes at Greenwood Quiltery. Here are some fabrics I've been auditioning for that quilt.
I'm hoping all these warm colours and interesting projects will get me through this winter. It's a beautiful sunny winter day here . I hope you have some sunshine where you are as well. I'm linking up to Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts.
