work in progress December 2013

I found this Geisha panel at Bayside Quilts in Olympia. Frank needed to meet our insurance company at our rental house for them to make sure our house was adequately insured. These colors are "perfect" for my sister's living room.

License Plate "Quilt"

I commissioned this metal art piece, it is 3 x 4 ft, composed of old license plates and Arizona Iced Tea cans. Carol Braden, who lives and works in Seattle made it for me. Her typical piece is a guitar shape made of license plates. It looks great in our living room, and unlike fabric, it will not fade from the sun in our west-facing windows.

Field Trip to Prints Charming in Maple Lawn

What a nice time we had visiting Prints Charming. The ladies there were very gracious. Jane won a door prize! As usual, I got carried away but only bought fabric that I just had to have. LOL

I'm progressing on my Baltimore Bunnies.  Only 2 more blocks to go.  This is what I have done.ttfn  :)  Yuki

What I did on my (February) vacation

I bought a bag of purple strips at a Block Party Quilt show a couple of years ago.  During my vacation to Maui, I sewed the strips together to make 6.5" squares.  The strips were of varying widths (approx 1 inch to 2.25 inch).  I found this excellent Kaffe Fassett orange floral with purple plums at Quilting Loft near my house.  The center is 42" x 48".  I want to add a purple floral as the border. 

Jenny, Michelle, Frank and I had a SUPER time whale watching off of Maui.
