4 New Quilt Paintings


(From left to right: Echo Star, Morning Star, Flutter Wheel with Toile, Turkey’s Delimma.)

I finished the Morning Star and Flutter Wheel last week, soon they are all four headed to Artstream Gallery in New Hampshire. Its fun to see them all together. That second picture up there shows the sides of the pieces, which has some smudges of paint. Should I paint the edges? Leave them as they are? What do you think? A part of me likes the layers and layers of paint just seeping over the edges a bit, but not sure if you’d want to see that when the piece is hung on a wall.


The rain returned over the weekend, after a record stretch (near-record? record? I can’t keep up) of no rain in Seattle. I missed it, I’ll admit. Was quite happy to curl up in my chair with my crochet hook and watch it drip outside. Finally gave in and started watching Downton Abbey, almost through season 1. Yes, I love it. Peter’s watching a 24 episode documentary on The Cold War. Emma is making more clay dragons and Ian is making stop motion animation movies. Gracie is napping. Tonight is baked potato night.


That’s how we’re rolling.

Getting some interweb inspiration for Halloween. We need to focus on costumes this week and next. I always make this process way harder than it needs to be.

Simple, Blair…simple.

Take care for now friends.
