I seem to always post on Sunday. I think this is because I am finally recovered from the week enough to focus on blogging. This weekend's theme was inspiration. I finally got around to taking a picture of a parking garage that has inspired me and will no doubt become a quilt in the near future. And today I got to spend some time with a great fiber artist and friend Laurie Brainerd, who's work has always inspired me. Check out her website http://www.lauriebrainerd.com/. I got to see her studio spaces of which I must say I am jealous! One day I too will have a space with great windows and plenty of room to spread out all my projects.
This week I started a new project even though I still need to quilt Magnolia's blanket, I wasn't in the mood for that kind of focus, so I started piecing another baby blanket for a friend and fellow preservationist who's little girl is due in February. I'm using the Hello Betty honey bun I got on sale because I think she will appreciate the vintage prints. I'm calling this pattern "Bricks and Mortar" a phrase commonly used in the preservation/architecture world. See the photos below, I'm trying to better document my process.
