Play time ... WooHoo!

So I have been way too busy, both at work and getting some projects done. I will make a couple of quick posts to catch you guys up on my latest quilting adventures.

But I will work backwards as I am pretty happy with my current project.

I joined a fiber arts group, FANE, Fiber Artists of New England. A great group of really talented women who come from all different artistic backgrounds,... Print making, dyeing, architecture, jewelry design, etc....  Their works are all so different, but as a group, they really feed off of and inspire one another.

FANE will have a special exhibit at the Northern Stars Quilt Guild show in May, with Kimono inspired quilts. So I have been busy working on mine.  The pieces will be made of at least 3 segments, a 16" wide body and two sleeves and will drape over poles.

Here are a few pics of mine in progress. Straight line quilting is a first for me :-)....

This is the back.... 

I have used Superior MonoPoly to zigzag over the yarn on the edge of the blue pieces and Superior Art Studio Colors for the blue and yellow straight  stitching with BottomLine in the bobbin.

Hope to get some more quilting in tonight.
