The second Teeny weeny

A month ago I finished my second Teeny Weeny. Pictured here is the first and second. Earth and wind. The earth piece was done with hand quilting and needle turn appliqué. I tried using fused pieces in by wind piece. I am currently working on my fire piece. I decided to make them the same size but they don't really have anything in common other than their size...

If you would like to read about the challenge take a look at my post from September 29, 2011.

Here are somemore photos from my trip. Every morning I got up and went for a walk on the beach. We were lucky enough to have summer in February so it was too nice not to get out there and enjoy. The patterns in the sand were amazing and the long flat stretch of sand was so nice for walking. I hope to use some of these ideas in my quilting soon! In the mean time I thought I would share them with you. Enjoy.

Here is my value work. I have had a difficult time judging my medium values. Some are on the dark side and others are too light. I will continue to work on that but not on this. I have worked on this one long enough. Time to move on! It will be a queen size quilt when finished. I finally have this quilt assembled and ready to be quilted. I think I will send this one off to be quilted, I just don't think I am ready to quilt something so large.

I am hoping to have some time to play on my other projects this weekend and maybe finish my valentines.... I know they are late. It had been busy around here.

Enjoy your weekend, I will.

Things are moving right along on my colorful quilt! I am having a good time working on this one but the progress is slow! Looking at this now as a photo I would have made a few color changes but I am not going to go backwoods, I will live with my choices...

The world away from my quilting has been keeping me busy. I have been working a bit more than I am used to I know many of you work full time and don't feel a bit sorry for me but I am spoiled! I am
Looking forward to having my day tomorrow to sew! Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Sewing and playing

I spent the last week on the Northern Oregon Coast with a couple of friends. We took a class, laughed, walked, ate and of course quilted. I had a wonderful time. It was very inspiring to spend time sharing ideas. The three of us are working on the Jacqueline deJonge, Colorful Quilt. They are coming along nicely. However in my naive way I was sure I would be finishing the top at the end of "Quilt Camp". I am no where near close to completing it. I am about 1/3 of the way through it.

I have been absent from my blog. I am trying to figure out how to fit it all in. I may spend some time just adding photos and see how I do with that... Time will tell.
