Boy was I busy this week! I took 3 days with my quilting buddies in Lake Tahoe and we sewed practically the whole time! I wanted to try the Ricky Tims' Kaleidoscope idea using some of the hand dyed fabric I'd purchased and although it was a very long, tricky process, I'm pretty happy with the result. Here's the center of the top. . .

. . . and 3 of the 6 steps to getting there, in reverse order.

Now I have to figure out what borders I need to add.

Thank you, Judy ( for the opportunity to share these Mondays with your other creative quilters! I swear, if it weren't for your blog, I wouldn't get nearly as much quilting done!

Brant Point Lighthouse, Nantucket, MA

I took a class from nationally known fiber artist Marcia Stein ( last week where we created a mini quilt from a photo. What you see here is my 8 x 10 photo on top of the fabric image I'm creating. Still needs a few details but I think I'll be able to finish it today. This is the kind of project that can do 2 things: turn you into a better photographer and hook you on making photo quilts!!
