All my bags are packed. I'm ready to go...

I have packed up all my quilting stuff for the move.

All my fabric and stuff from my sewing room neatly stacked. My husband was shocked how large the pile was.













All of my quilts packed and ready to move. My walls look so bare without quilts on them. Hard to believe I have 4 huge boxes of quilts.



Still not sure when we will be moving. Our septic plans were approved by the county health department. Now we are getting estimates to get the work done. So far the one estimate is for $28,000. That does not include what we have already handed out which is around $5000 and more fees and expenses to come.
So the saga continues.






Now what will I work on?

I have my Hawaiian quilt packed and ready to work on while living with my MIL. Obviously needle turn applique is not my best skill!









Thanks for reading.

Summary of designs

I came up with quite a few designs for abstract quilts in my class with EB.

These are my favorites:

 GRAY SCALE:

 BLUE GREEN PIXEL DESIGNS: I prefer the one on the right and will definitely make it someday.

 PURPLE AND TEAL PIXELS WITH OVERLAY AND THEN CHOPPED.

CONVERTED TO BLUE PALLETTE: Love the colors of this one, but then blue is my favorite color. It reminds me of the darkening sky right after sunset.

CONVERTED TO A RED PALLETTE.

So my favorite technique is:

  • Creating the pixels
  • Putting an abstract image on top of it
  • Cutting this apart and arranging the pieces.

 

Maybe this is something I can really expand upon. I think I have barely scratched the surface of this technique.

What do you think?
