A time for quilting




Hurricane Sandy barely touched Cape Cod -- how lucky I am to have chosen this as a place to live!  What it did was give me a couple of days for serious quilting. This little color wash style mini quilt is a picture of a nice day at the beach -- you can see, sun in the sky, quiet water, sand with shells, even a little bit of marsh with a bit of beach roses.  This has been sent to a swap-bot partner.  I might sometime decided to make a bigger version,  I don't know.

This was not made in the last couple of days.  I'm working on two bigger projects, a piece of indigo with a dragon on it that is becoming a wall hanging -- by the end of the week it will be done.  And a quilt for my youngest great-grandson that will be done, definitely, before  Christmas.  It's a gay collection of polka dots and stripes in primary colors to which various farm animal pictures will be added.  I've only just started and it's proving to be a lot of fun.  Other planned project await -- of course.  My mind is always full of things I'd like to make.

This little quilt piece is beautiful -- it's a story quilt of your environment. -- barbara

Exactly right, Barbara. I made if for someone who has never seen the ocean. I hope she gets the feeling.
