The month of October passed with quite a bit of “dithering” on my part – flitting from project to project with “indecisive agitation” but not finishing much. However, with Northern California’s second true rainstorm in two weeks, I have regained my SOU or Sense of Urgency. A glimpse at the calendar helped also – only two weeks to Thanksgiving???!! With El Nino and the holiday season rapidly approaching it was time to get focused.
So this week I finished binding 4 small color studies. The small studies measure under 15″ each and were all done in American Made Solids. The first two were my own designs, playing with color and then using Gwen Marston’s floating squares technique.
The other two were both inspired by paintings by Ben Nicholson, a painter from the 1930’s. Here are the pieces next to the paintings.
I also quilted and machine bound my vintage/retro 4 patch. This quilt used up most of my 3″ vintage fabric sample squares and the last of many of my favorite 2″ pieces.
It’s been quite a week. I’m linking up with finish it up Friday!
