I have been burning up the computer completing as much of my design work (illustration) for as many of the 2013 projects as I can.
The Naturalist’s Notebook Center Block is the workshop project for Asilomar 2013 in May. I need to get a handle on what is needed so I can pass that along to each of you who are signed up.
Since I am typing this in the midst of a severe wind storm and it is blowing scary right now, so this post will be very brief.
We have sitting water due to non-stop rain storms since October and the trees that are meant to be settled into dry land are now in mucky, muddy, mushy, wet earth. I have my fingers crossed the roots have enough solid dirt to keep them upright firmly in the ground and not falling over like dominoes. I hate wind.
Back to the designing topic……
Just for fun, I colored in (quickly) the pattern illustration just to give a sense of what the middle block will look like.
I was asked to do Poppy Soliloquy as a pattern and as many of you know, I do not pattern my special quilts so this design is a new version based loosely on the original.
I think this will be much better and the pattern is being created to fit in nicely with the Naturalist’s Notebook quilt. (I am using Adobe Illustrator by the way for those who are curious).
The overall design is not quite complete and you can see my composition shapes where other components of the design will be placed as I finish it up.
Now? I am going to go and hide under the blankets until the wind goes away. They say Monday afternoon. I am writing this Sunday evening.
I would never make it in hurricane country.
