The theme is "Gridded" series; the first two quiltlets are here. The next two were made during the afternoon of Deadline Day and uploaded to the requisite website with a couple of hours to spare. No sweat...
For those of us who need to turn over embroideries etc, here are the backs of the first four JQs of 2017 -
The coffee table has become my "studio", spilling over with threads and complete with snacks to keep the spirits up and fingers busy -
Much progress was made on both the sewing and carpentry fronts.
With the change of month, it's time for a fresh JQ - I was on a roll and had enough fabric bits on hand to start another -
|Gridded: Off Grid|
The black/white fabric is left over from previous JQs and the circles were made from threads that fell off the torn edges of the previously-prepared black backings and from other fabrics. Lots of careful, invisible, pleasurable stitching on this one, but ... I'm not happy with the rumpled look of the top section. Machine quilting might have worked better, but my machine is currently inaccessible.
Still, one of the aims of JQs is to see what works and what doesn't.
On to the next!
