Keeping it Short
I’m keeping it short this week. Why? Simple, although I continue to sneak in some studio time, most of my time was spent celebrating. First and foremost, the most important day, the Senior Executive Director of Studio Operation’s birthday. The day before we made a 5 hour round trip to watch our 12 year old grandson’s hockey game, followed by lunch. Yes, we also enjoyed Thanksgiving at our home with family. Guess you can tell far more eating and visiting time took place than studio time.
Keeping it focused
Studio time was short, but focused. I am working on thread painting Sue’s feet. As you can see in the detail photo, her shadowed foot is done and I am currently working on the foot with sun drenched highlights. If you look closely you can see dark gray fabric appliquéd in the top left. My plan is to handle creating the quilt the same way you piece appliqué, back to front. Sue’s shadowed leg is on top of the inside of the hem of her sweatpants. The best way to tackle such a challenging quilt, is one short step at a time.
I enjoyed a brief respite from thread painting to do more 2024 Rainbow Scrap Challenge prep work. No sewing, just cutting. I created yards and yards of black and white fabric strips in various widths. These will be seamed together for the center strip of each my 255. I’m off to a good start, but also far, far short of creating sufficient strips for the quilt. I’ll get there.
