I had a couple of deadlines come up this week. First, I promised to make a Christmas tree skirt for a tree that will be in the Lawrence Festival of Trees, then I promised to make a quilt for a fabric company to be shown at Quilt Market. All things are possible when the deadline is months or weeks away, right? The festival tree is a skinny white tree with an over-the-top amount of gold and white bows. My plan was to make a skirt that was an iridescent white with ribbon and bows to make each section look like a wrapped package. Here is the result:
As always, I am not too impressed with my work...but the deadline was met.
The quilt was a rush job. I had three weeks to make a twin sized quilt that featured a new line of solid colored fabrics that will be introduced by Fabriquilt at Market. The theme of their booth is butterflies and flowers. The flowers on my quilt got deleted for time but here is what I ended up delivering:
A friend came up with a great name for this quilt. "A Flutter of Color". This quilt is ok, but if I could do it again I think I could do a better job of including more of the fabric colors. OK, now on to the next nagging project.
