Summer UpdatePosted on August 22, 2018 by Beth Markel
apologies for taking a short break, but I have been working on the same quilt for more than 6 weeks now, and while I see progress, it’s the same block, over and over and over again, just in different colors.
And the block is 3/4″ x 3/4″ finished. So slow, tedious, but so far I’m liking the work in progress:
So while this is actually “progress” it is slow. I am making this a quilt-as-you-go piece also, as the entire work will be stitched in the ditch, and not all the blocks line up perfectly. I want it that way, simply to make the eye work harder – it makes it more interesting , or at least I hope it will by the time it’s finished. The first of this series was also stitched in a quilt-as-you-go manner, as I wanted the quilting to be as detailed as the work itself was. While Autumn is still in the works, below is Spring:
And the detail… I have no idea what I was thinking at the time, and yes, those are all tied knots, even the tiny ones:
Now on a very happy note, my quilt, Chatter, was juried into the Quilts=Art=Quilts 2018 exhibit at the Schweinfurth Museum in Auburn, NY, and will run from 10-27-18 to 1-6-19. I’m so blessed!
That’s all for now – I will keep you posted on the progress of this work. I am looking forward to a busy fall schedule, and if you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me an email.
