WiP Wednesday -

So the Van Gogh project from last week has seen an epiphany and progress since last week!
I don't think I am going to give away the final "vision" of the quilt until it is done, but if people see what the final quilt will look like from the picture, so be it!

Without further ado:

I am also working on a mini quilt for a swap. This is a new technique for me, so I hope it all turns out ok.  She said she liked owls, so she is getting owls.

What does everyone think????

WiP---I'm Stuck!!!

So as you guys have read I wanted to do a cool quilt with the Van Gogh panel I picked up so I started framing them in. Once that was done I went to the design wall and tried a couple of layouts to see if I could come up with something good.

Here is the layout I decided on:

I know how I want to finish the quilt, but in my ambition I am choosing to design the "blocks" for the currently empty spaces myself. Great idea with the exception that I have no idea how to make the thing I see in my head!

So there it sits on my design wall.

As far as other projects in the works, I have an idea for an Alice in Wonderland quilt that I am currently collecting fabric for. I am always on the lookout for Alice "themed" fabrics: Teacups/pots, Chess, cards, things that look Alice-like (if that makes any sense) Donations always accepted! HAHA
I also have the pixel project staring me in the face, but I want to use the gridded Pelon to sew it all together. Problem is I have no idea how to use it. Tips welcome!
Then there is the bargello-ish quilt for my daughter, slowly but surely.
There is also a bunch of stuff I want to try from various books and sites.
And let's not forget the block swap and miniquilt swap I am in....

For a new quilter I seem to be really busy.

Oh well, back to it!
