I've made a start on a new art quilt. I've finally gotten all the black thread tails buried in the batting layer and now I'm onto the background quilting.
The technique I'm using for the quilt is the same one I wrote about in the Aug/Sept 2013 issue of Quilting Arts magazine.
I've also been spending some time going through my house and doing some purging. It seems like every time I get around to doing this I get a bit more brave with the things I get rid of. Why do we feel the need to have so much stuff when we don't ever use it? It is so nice to create some extra space in the cupboards, closets and drawers.
