Busy Week!

I've had an incredibly productive week.  Nothing gets me going like a deadline...
I have my first solo show, at an art gallery in Keller, Texas, coming up in January.  And I felt that I should make some smaller pieces to show.  Most of my tuning fork quilts are large -- 50" by 70" or larger.  I wanted a mix of sizes for the show.

So this week, I spent many many hours in the studio.  And I made these:
Six pieces in one week.  I'm pretty happy.  And exhausted.  I logged 35 studio hours in 4 days.

Subdivision #4, 20" x 29"
Sub #7, 22" x 19"
Sub #8, 25" x 34"
Sub #5, 21" x 27"
Sub #6, 15" x 16"
Sub #9, 22" x 20"
I made this top the week before I went to Houston.  I liked it, and it sparked the other 6:
Sub #3, 30" x 40"
Next week I plan to quilt and finish at least a couple of these, and to start a couple of small tuning fork quilts.  Another busy week!

I'm linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday, Richard and Tanya's Quilts Link a Finish FridayFriday Fabric FrenzyConfessions of a Fiber Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday.  Go see all the wonderful work there!

The blue and the red ones especially catch my eye. Nice rich colors, elegant line work.
