    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.

    Wow, if this is what you do between quilts, I can't imagine what your quilts are like. Wonderful!

    Thank you Tapper. These are not that hard, but that's easy for me to say. Let me tell you though some of my early ones are under the dog's water dish. I've not done a tute here. I guess that's what I thought my site was for. I'd be happy to try one if I knew which style or topic would be most popular.

    Hi...tapper again.
    Thanks for your reply..
    I guess you're right...that's what your blog is for. I suppose I just figured that many QB members wouldn't check out your blog. I don't usually check members' blogs. I did go to yours because I was interested in your landscape designs and wanted to learn more.

    If you do decide to do a tute here, I would like to see a beginner project.
    I would like to know how to choose appropriate fabrics, how to cut the fabrics and how to attach them.
    Hope you do decide to do a tute here.
    Thanks again
