Progress Report

No finished quilts this week, but a lot of progress nonetheless.  I had three wonderful days in the studio, nothing but a bit of laundry to distract me from my work, and the weather outside too cold and damp to tempt me to try a bit of gardening.  Perfect!

Ruins #2 was started at the TVQG retreat in January.  I wasn't happy with it, so I added the bottom bit.  And, in fact, it is my favorite bit.  I love the high contrast and love some of the figures I created.

Ruins #2, approx 32" x 46"
 So my design wall was now clear.  Time to start another tuning fork!
Tuning Fork 12 
Very early going, of course, but I think I like the direction it's taking.  Maybe......

Spring hasn't arrived here yet either. So work gets done in the studio.

Your work is looking good.

#11 I Loved so much and #12 is shaping up to be very exciting with the colors and grey.

ohhhh I'm jealous that you had your days - I only had one! I really do love where these are going - its interesting to me that you work on two at the same time!

I think the dark red/white part at the bottom gives it a great sense of weight. I also really like the rasberry/mustard color combination. Pulls you in!

Nice to be able to focus on your art project without distractions! I love your stick piecing!

The tuning forks are amazing. I wonder how someone just wakes up in the morning and says, hey, I think I'll do tuning forks!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. It was like I woke up yesterday and said, Hey, those blocks need to go in a baby quilt! LOL
