|'Pacific Blues' #1|
The small quilt to the left is my first in a series, 'Pacific Blues' .
I'm using a basic 'broken bars' block with batiks and muslin. I have yet to sew down the binding on the back, I'll get to it. It measures 11 x 11". With this series I plan to explore the many 'moods' of the Pacific Ocean off the west coast using mostly blues. It's good to work in a series as a color study and to get faster and more efficient with construction.
The small quilt above with pink binding is a doll quilt, 12 x 15". It's for my grand daughter who just turned three. I machine quilted it and added running stitch for embellishment. She loves to wrap and snuggle her dollies.
Happy Monday, remember to leave the world more beautiful than you found it!
