From that point, I felt the need to move back into my art piecing, using the neutral/sand palette. I pulled the creams/tans/brown from the green batik in the traditional piece, then added just a bit of color back in. Greens/blues/purples.
I'm working on a new concept for designing and piecing to offer eventually. I'm also taking this opportunity to work on my curved piecing, something I have not done much of yet!
This is the first piece in the new series:
This is part of the second piece in the series, it's now layered and about to be quilted.
The quilting won't get done today most likely. Tomorrow I'm off for a girls weekend in Grand Rapids, MN. Good friend, good food, good wine/drinks are anticipated. It's been planned for quite awhile, and I can't wait for the fun to start. Hopefully the predicted sun will hold out, it will warm up a bit and we can take full advantage of our hikes this weekend. Pretty scenery, and awesome company should make for an inspiring weekend!
