After completing one big deadline at work this month, it was time for a sigh of relief before Monday starts all over again, and for a QUILT BREAK! (Plus, throw in a few board games with ds and hubby for extra fun). With a coupled of days off work, I was able to do a little digging through things, tiding up, and dreaming about the Bible quilt pattern (Remember this find a couple posts ago?).
It looks pretty rough here, but just getting some fabric and layout ideas (Genesis - Ark - sideways Egypt with pyramids, a palm tree, and a Fabric for Jacob's coat of many colors). Since I have also been out and about in the past month to see dd on the east coast, I made a trip to Lowell New England Quilt Museum (mom joined me from San Diego YAY!). Sorry we did not get to see awesome quilter and friend Coral on this trip east, but maybe next time. On the trip I was able to gather some primitive and homespun looking fabric scraps. Combined with what I dug up at home, the $3 scrap packs at the museum were just the find of old, odd pieces that I needed! I am also adding some tiny little bright spots of color in the quilt to highlight various elements and so not all drab, primitive colors. We'll see how that works.
Just thinking....2014 is supposed to be a year of finishes. I had better get back on track :) I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
