    Coping when I'm "in between" quilts

    I find it a very "antsy" time. I have two in my head, but as they are all big projects. I have to be in the right space to start. Beginning is always the hardest, that first cut into the material. To stay busy and creative I put together the pieces below over the last few weeks. They will go to my sister's B&B after I've had a chance to show them to my fibre arts group. They are all very different. Enjoy!

    Outstanding, as usual MaryKatherine!

    Knowing the location of your sister's B+B ....
    .... I think you'd better do multiples of that skiier.
    I'm sure it'll sell instantly!

    Hi MaryKatherine....this is tapper.

    Your work is beautiful!
    I really like the skiier and the leaves.
    Sure do wish I could see you at work...maybe I'd learn to not be afraid to make an art quilt!
    I want to take a class but I live in the sticks. I need to see someone making one.

    Have you done a tute on QB?



    Visited your blog. The 'flounder' is my favorite among all your creative projects.
    Thanks for sharing your work.
