Back at the sewing machine
My goal has been to get myself producing quilts again. I have lots of ideas, but have really accomplished "not much" lately.
So I took a sketch down to be enlarged yesterday, but when I got home I started on something else entirely. Who knows how this quilter's mind works!
When I was making the large Forest Walk quilt, I thought that I would use a lot of redwood boughs that were made from thread. However when I started putting them on the quilt...I didn't like it. As a result I had a bunch of already made boughs so I needed a place to sew them.
I did a rough forest scene - sort of based on a picture from Sequoia Park. I scattered the threadplay over the top and now it's ready to quilt. ( I hope that the quilting does miracles for it!)
I started on the big tree and will keep you posted on how it goes.
