working the UFO circuit


Since I've sent most of my before/after UFOs off to Richmond, VA as samples for one of the classes I will be teaching in October at the wonderful shop, Quilting Adventures, I need to replenish my stock. More to the point, I just need to work on something small, since I have not been in the studio (too hot) and my bulletin board design wall isn't large.

My friend Rachel's pink and purple and turquoise blocks have been redone, except for the one I am keeping as my "before."  But I have one leftover piece that I did not use, so I started with that one and am into my baggies to see if something I already have lying around will work with it. And then, of course, I am modifying as I go along.

This is what my nice, clean design wall looked like late last night. The original block is on the right (or is that stating the obvious?)
Maybe tonight, after I get back from my afternoon in New York, I'll play around a little bit more. Work in progress.

How come that your design methods are such a sensuous pleasure? It might be cutting into the pieces which give a tremendous feeling of power. And this power then makes you roll up the next slope far enough. I transferred this method onto my watercolor painting. A wonderful feeling.

I'm so glad your coming down to Richmond. I've already signed up for your Saturday class. Really looking forward to it!!!!

Hi, Rayna. Looks like you're having fun on that design wall. I especially liked your piece in the previous. It will be interesting to see what you do to it next.
best, nadia
