The Prairie Quilt Guild's July speaker was Lea McComas. I took her two day workshop on Portrait Quilts and hey, this is me! It was a challenge, especially the glasses, but I'm actually thinking of trying to make a portrait of the grandkids or a landscape art quilt or a tractor or ???
I finally finished the heart orphan block quilt top and its being machine quilted this week. I can't take credit for this idea, saw it somewhere on the internet but can't find it again to give credit to the original maker. Does anyone recognize this idea? I did a little fine tuning after this photo was taken and also plan to add some embellishment later. It was supposed to be a wall hanging size but measures a whopping 84 x 92".
Here are the orphan blocks I'm using for project #3. Any guesses what I'm going to do with them? Its already challenging my limited math skills. After making several mistakes and deciding to embrace them as design choices, I sure hope this project looks good when its finished because right now I'm unsure where its going.
Here's the color scheme. I love color!
Since I don't do well in the heat and humidity outside, I'm finding more time to stitch this week. My question - why do the weeds flourish in my flower beds while the flowers wilt? The other day I found a weed which had escaped my attention by growing near an invasive vine in our yard. It was taller than me! Since it's kind is usually pulled before they're even a foot high, I had no idea it could grow so tall. Weeds on steroids? So, so looking forward to the cooler temperatures of fall!
Until next time, Mayleen
