I'm working in a large, "double diamond" orientation.
More has been added since this photo was taken and I'll post another, better image soon. This is a nice,
meditative activity. To construct these, simply cut 6.5 inch squares of plain muslin cloth to serve as the foundation for the strips. Strips can be any width: in fact, I think the blocks have more interest if the strips vary in width! I randomly piece these together, but find I am liking the way the yellow elements are consistent inside one "diamond". I think I will add a bright strip of color around the perimeter, then perhaps another strip pieced border and a back, but no additional batting. This will be a quilt (3 layers) but will serve as a coverlet.
I took some images of a couple of odds and ends in my house, just for fun. Here they are:
I have a glass "fetish". Here are a couple of the glass platters I have installed in the living room.
Did I mention I love (adore) skeletons?
and metal repose' hearts?
more skeletons and a miniature mixed media piece
another heart made by a Kansas City artist (name unknown at the time of purchase).
This is the coolest stuff! Yarn created from paper!
