Fun Weekend

I was able to do a lot of creative work this weekend. I quilted and I painted. I continued my free-motion quilting on the Indian Orange Peel quilt and if you remember a few days ago, I shared with you how I quilted the center area of each of the 25 blocks. Here is a photo of how I did all the arcs on the blocks.

I now have all 25 blocks quilted. Now I need to quilt the two borders, one is narrow and the other wider. As I write this post, I have no clues as to the design I will quilt, so I need to start thinking.

When I wasn't quilting this weekend I was having fun painting favorite thing to paint. Up first is a small painting I did on a canvas panel.

And this next painting is the second one in the Squinty Cat series. I loved how the first one turned out so thought I'd do another. I'm hoping to paint up a whole family of Squinty Cats.

I've put these two kitty paintings in my Etsy Shop along with a couple of other paintings I finished recently.
