On the design wall

 While putting away fabric yesterday, I found a practice piece from about 2 years ago that I had never finished.  I did this using the Quarter Trip Around the World technique from Eleanor Burns.  I wanted to see how the strata worked, etc. before beginning my Shenandoah Colors quilt.  Seeing this practice piece now, after working through the Art Quilt Workbook,  is like viewing a blank canvas waiting to come to life.  It reminds me of the pond less waterfall we put in the backyard a couple of years ago.  No fish, just lots of plants and grasses.  I love the soothing sound of the water as it spills over the rocks......I think I have an art quilt to do!

I like it. A frog and some Catkins might look nice :)

It's nice to finish something you've found that you had forgotten about. Now you can put a new spin on it.

Just discovered your blog and love it! Is there a way that I can subscribe via e-mail? I do that with others, and as each new entry is posted, I get an e-mail. Can you check into that for me? I find that much easier than being a follower. Thanks! dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com
