I was starting to get concerned that I wouldn’t get a quilt done in March, due to lack of motivation and sheer laziness, but I was inspired by a piece of silk I dyed and whipped this little one out. It’s called Blossomfeathers, and is about 12 1/2 x 15″. Ingredients are cotton, silk, and beads (so yay, that means I have a beaded project done for the month, too!). This is, of course, not one of the piles of unfinished quilts I have to get through, but just something spontaneous I felt like putting together. I look forward to seeing the little bits of silk flap in the breeze, if it ever gets warm enough to open my windows, that is.

Hey, another finished quilt! Woot! I’m now caught up to where I need to be for February, and, it has beads on it, too, so it counts towards my bead goal! Yay!
I’m calling this one ‘Little Red Boat in the Big Black Sea,’ for obvious reasons. I finished the quilt top in late spring 2005, and haven’t worked on it until yesterday. All of the fabrics are hand-dyes that I did, I used 5 different colors of thread to quilt it, and I hand sewed on the beads after the quilt was all done. It’s a wee little quilt, only 21″ x 27″ but it looks nice on my wall and makes me happy. Yay!

Woo hoo! Finally, I finished my first quilt of the year. Hooray! I decided to ditch working on the Tahquemenon quilt for now, since I totally was not in the mood to do hand quilting. Instead, I dug this up. I had pieced the top together, so it just needed quilted and bound. It’s only about 32″ square, so I figured that would be doable for my first quilted project. I stitched in the ditch across the center pieced section, thought it looked like ass, then did the big stipples around the border. I still thought it looked like ass, so I did a really messy echoing of the stipples and I turned out to really like that. There are a few rectangles in the center that have tiny stipples in them, too.
The double stipples looked like double vision to me, and it reminded me of the tripped out elephant on the label of the Delirium Tremens beer. So, that’s why I’m calling this wallhanging ‘Delirium Tremens.’ I’m just glad it’s done. Yay!
