I just finished building the fern fronds for the design I revealed in my last post. Here are the fronds with all the parts on them that were cut on my Brother ScanNCut. In this photo they are just hanging on my white design wall. This weekend I will find a suitable background. This project is an attempt at working in a more graphic and abstract style. If you have suggestions for background colour/s, I am all ears. I was initially leaning toward white to further enhance the graphic qualities. I am not sure at the moment. My design wall looks a little off-white here and that may be why it isn't pleasing me.
This week I received two photos from Virginia Miller. She took my Hosta Leaves 101 class last year at Textile Traditions of Almonte. She chose the Hosta Trio pattern, and instead of making a wall quilt, she cut hers up and turned it into a bag. Pretty cool and clever I would say.
If you are in the Ottawa Valley, I will be delivering a lecture and trunk show on Monday night, January 16 for the Kemptville Quilters Guild.
