Raven art quilt


I finished the raven this week. I like how he came out.
Been watching a lot of quilting arts tv lately. We don’t get in our area so I recently found out if you subscribe to the quilting company you can watch it online. Well worth the 8 bucks a month in my opinion.


That’s where this feather came from ( one of the episodes)

I also gave up on the 100 day project. Got sick of the leaf prints after 27 days and the other people in the group were fizzling out also so I suggested we change to a daily creative post. Do something creative every day be it sewing, drawing, inspirational thinking and post it every day. Only a couple of us are actually posting every day and most have dropped out of participation it I’m still doing it and have made a couple of “cyber quilting friends there”. There are still a couple people doing the 100 day project although not every day but that’s ok as long as people are creating stuff that’s important. 
Anyway it’s quilters daily creative post on Facebook - join us!

Raindrops on roses

 I’m learning how to paint raindrops. First a rose. This is with the paint wet.



And after drying with raindrops ( that look more like bubbles) but still pretty cool. The rose itself lost a lot after drying though. I tried adding more paint and screwed up the corner.
 Here is the first raindrop I made. Looks like a marble

 Second try, now these look more raindrop like. I think raindrops need to be irregular while bubbles would be perfectly round. So much fun to make  and gratifying. Something different. If you want to try just google how to draw a raindrop. You tube will show you how and it really is pretty easy. You can do it!

Notebook cover


Pretty in pink

Pink is not a color I use much but it looks good with the white and beige.

Love how this quilting turned out
