A productive week


I finished the little lighthouse quilt from the class I took a couple of weeks ago with Marcia Stein (www.marciastein.com). I'll definitely do another one of these satisfying quilts but first I'll have to go out and take some interesting photos. The 'shingles' in the lighthouse and the 'catwalk' at the top of the lighthouse are made with threadplay. The top window is shaded with black tulle. If you go back a couple of weeks, you'll see how it looked before the quilting.



And here's the finished top from the Kaleidoscope quilt I posted a last week. I used the leftover 'strata' for the inner border and the outer border is Ricky Tims' hand dyed fabric.

Very pretty indeed. I am always in awe of people who can make quilts look like pictures. Very creative.

Oh my gosh, your quilts are gorgeous. I love landscape quilting. I'm taking a class in August and doing a landscape quilt for my guild's challenge. We're supposed to pick a child's book as a theme, and then use a technique we've not done before. Mine will be landscape quilting, and my book is Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House in the Big Woods."
