Fractured Quilt Challenge

Had a blast working on the Fractured Quilt Challenge that Tomme Fent put together. It was just hard to send it off -- I was getting pretty fond of it...
Got the new issue of Quilting Arts the day before I sent it and would have happily embellished it to kingdom come. I may make another just to play with. The new QA has gobs of surface design techniques!

The 4 finished pieces


Closer detail -- Pentel dye sticks, cool threads, pearls, angelina fibers...much fun!

Quilted Celtic kitties for Eileen's birthday

Progress on TJay's table

Work continues on the French braid quilt...

The strips are all done and trimmed -- still have to sew them together and add the birders. Have no idea, where the hell I'm going to find a large enough space to lay out the quilt sandwich and do the basting. It'll be about 110'...
