JQ 1 and JQ2

"First catch your rabbit" - which means making some "gridded" fabric -
Cutting it to size - can I get two JQs out of one piece of painted fabric?
A jar of buttons cut from recycled shirts and blouses, over the years -
 Playing around with arrangements - and simplifying -
Neon thread for accents -
Grid #2 - the remnants were just that bit short of the required size, so the wadding (recycled wool jumper) can peak through -
I used threaded running stitch as quilting stitch, and spent the entire day stitching, along with some live radio in the morning and podcasts in the afternoon. And very little computer time!

It's been an unusual day, being quiet at home. Must do more of this.... and must be very quick making the two other JQs before the deadline.
