February is upon us already! The weather is mild and tempting spring into coming early...maybe a little wishful thinking. We will enjoy while we can!
I have embarked on a quilting project that I am anxious to share in stages. I was in a quilting store a couple of weeks ago and picked up a lovely book called "Confetti Naturescapes" by Noriko Endo. Her quilts are so pretty. I was curious...and so decided to try the technique. She bases her quilts on photographs and if I make another one after this...I might too. My quilt is going to based on a drawing I did a while back. My grandson was drawing dinosaurs and Nana was drawing trees!
And so I will show you in phases how this quilt is coming along. I want to finish this fairly quickly...
The quilts in the book use leftover fabrics from sewing projects and include a variety of fabrics. My quilt will be based on pieces of fabric in my stash...and I am going for a fall-like look. I love fall and water...and am going to incorporate both. Here is where I am at in pics...
