True to my word, after I finished the Fraktur One Sampler, I abided by my self-imposed "rule" of picking up Ann Rayner and putting at least 3 lengths of silk in on her before moving on.
And guess what...she has captured my attention...
again. I've worked on her this whole past weekend. You probably can't gauge the progress...
but trust me...progress is being made. the whole upper right from the center over is new progress. And I turned a corner in the lower left. I'm going to keep her out for a while. I can't remember how long ago I started her...maybe this will be her year!
Also capturing my attention....Amish quilts. I've been playing around with the wonderful Moda Bella Solids that I have for sale in my Etsy.
So these will hopefully find their way in to a quilt top soon. My inspiration is this quilt.
I saw this on Minick & Simpson's blog a while back and was enamored. I'm planning to do a similar version. We'll see how it works out. I'm trying to use the Bella Solids I have and not order more in, so I'll be loosely taking the Amish approach and using what I have. Granted they didn't have bolts and bolts of lovely Moda fabrics to pick from....but we'll chalk that up to progress, or something like that.
