Abstract Play

I made this little abstract piece playing with fabrics I had left over from the Design and Composition workshop I took with Deborah Boschert in October 2017.  I did most of the work before the Bonnie Hunter mystery started.  Today, I added a little more quilting and binding.  It is pushed pinned to my bedroom wall as the downstairs walls are all a  gray green that doesn't work well with the green in this piece.

I like it, but it needs editing - not that I am going to change it.  It is more a practice/play piece.  I am going to buy more clear push pins and use the wall in my room to hang little things like this for inspiration, ideas etc.  Note - it was cut straight so it may be I just need a pin in the lower right corner to get it looking straight.

ORL adding sashing and setting triangles

I worked on this today while sewing with friends.  It is coming along.   I am linking up to Bonnie Hunter's site - where you can get the pattern and see progress others have made on the mystery  here

Sashing options ORL

I have all the blocks made and now I am wondering about the sashing.  I am thinking if I change it to a green it will make the quilt less of a lavendar quilt.  Tomorrow is my small group retreat day so I hope to get the top together.  In the pic the sashing isn't - just laying on top.

Putting it together - On Ringo Lake

Actually I am still making blocks but I have put it on the design wall to see how the sashing will play.

working on clue 4 On Ringo Lake

I think I am going to like all these fabrics together.  There should be a lot more blue and charcoal in the upcoming clues.  To see other quilter's progress visit Bonnie Hunter's blog via this link
