Photos of recent projects…

I’ve always said that I’ll never be a phenomenal artist because I haven’t had enough hardship in my life. I guess this is because artists tend to use their medium as a form of therapy, and with more hardship, there comes more opportunity for self-expression. I have definitely found this to be true in the past 2.5 months. I’ve been in a bit of a quilting frenzy. Well, a piecing frenzy, anyway. I need to get to the quilting part.

  1. Elaine,
    I really like the top one! Is that your own design or did it come from a pattern or book somewhere? My sister and I are taking quilting classes, but I would like to do more “creative quilting” than we are learning in class. The ladies are already laughing at us, because we change every single project that we do — just enough so that it’s different from the pattern!
    Thanks for sharing your projects with us.

  2. The top one is from an online class called “Shattered Angles” at quiltuniversity.com, which I’m taking right now. It’s actually a pretty simple concept. I did screw up a little bit — the angles are supposed to be 45 degrees, and I managed to cut mine at 60 degrees, so it looks a little different than the class sample. I’m pleased with how it’s turning out.

  3. How funny Elaine – I will be taking the Shattered Angles class in a couple of weeks. It will be interesting to compare our finished quilts (sometime in the future ;))
