The Girls Are Back

I finished putting the binding on this quilt over a week ago, right before I got sick.  I never got around to taking a photo of it until now.  I have it blocking on my design wall and still need to add a label and hanging sleeve.  

The Store Ran Out of Hair Dye
48.25" x 41.5"
Hand-dyed & commercial fabric, paint; machine pieced, free-motion quilted
Just a reminder, I used a quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) method of creating the above quilt.  The method is one I learned from The Quilting Edge blog. You will find the QAYG tutorial here.  For my quilt I used the QAYG #4 Joining with Wide Strips and QAYG #6 Adding Borders.  These tutorials are wonderful.  I really enjoyed this method of quilting, although I wouldn't use it all the time, just in certain projects.

And up next is a two-and-a-half page spread from one of my watercolor journals.  I started this a couple days ago.  After I am done with the base layers on these pages, my plan is to add doodles on top.  We'll see!
