Monument Valley - A New Landscape Quilt

Monument Valley - my quilt top

I've been working on a new quilt for the last couple of weeks. It felt sooo good to be back using fabrics and paints to make a landscape. Here's a little bit about how I've been feeling, what I've been doing and why I wanted to make this particular scene.

Medical Masks - It's SOS time.

Completed Mask

 Hey all, this is a short fast tutorial on how I am making medical masks. There are lots of us getting requests so anything you can do to help our health care professionals would be awesome.

Beautiful Things Continues

He Makes Beautiful Things (so far)
As winter drones on and on here I'm increasingly happy about the colors and joyful expression in my quilt. This wouldn't be a good time of year for me to make a gloomy cloudy day landscape that's for sure. You can see from the above pic that I've made some progress creating things for the tree.

He Makes Beautiful Things - New Quilt (In Progress)

He Makes Beautiful Things out of the Dust - the garden is done

It's been a long time since I've blogged or had time for quilting - it's been a long hard year for me. Last year someone quite close to me was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and I helped her and her family through chemotherapy.  Now it's come back and I'm sad about what lies ahead.

I started this quilt last April or so I think, I hardly remember. You can see a bit about how I put it together and what inspired me by reading on.

The Cliffs of County Kerry, Ireland - Done

The Cliffs of County Kerry, Ireland
 It's been a few weeks (or months?!) since I posted and I finally finished the Cliff landscape I've been working on for so long. I have a couple of close-up shots to show you  and this will be a short blog I'm afraid.

Kerry Cliffs - The Quilt Top is Finished

Kerry Cliffs, Ireland -  Quilt Top

 I've put together the foreground of the landscape and thought I'd show you how I did it. As of now, I've started stitching down the fabrics but this blog will be looking back on how I created the confetti foreground.

Kerry Cliffs - Still working on them!

Kerry Cliffs

Yay! I'm mostly done with the quilt top now. I need to add rocks in the water at the bottom left and I still have to fuse everything down, but the bulk of this landscape is done.
Whew!
