This blog will be a journey through my quiltwork and some artwork and my life...sometimes the muse' is not active but I'll try I was a gourd artist until my hands gave out, now I thoroughly enjoy playing with fabric and paint. Enjoy most everything that nature has to offer.
Family and friends are very important. I live in the beautiful Peace River Area of northeastern BC.
I finished step #3 of the Modern Mystery quilt. We have two more steps can't wait to see how this will go together. I feel so liberated with this quilt, no exact measurements seams pressed open...wonderful fun!
It is a gorgeous day in the North, a bit frosty this morning but the sun has sure made up for it now :)
Hope you are having a lovely Fall day!
I am so intrigued with the Modern Quilt movement. However just didn't know where to start, I know I need some solids in my stash and some greys. The AQS are sponsoring a Modern Mystery quilt so I signed up for it. Not sure what the whole quilt will look like but it is a start to making Modern Quilts. I like the freedom of not precise measurements etc. Here are the results from the first two steps.
Step 1 rectangles of various sizes
Step 2 half circles on a background (or field as they call it ) of light grey.
Stay tuned for Step 3 as a I continue my journey into Modern Quilting.
It is such a beautiful Fall up north, one of the warmest Septembers that I remember. We spent a few days camping up the Hiway and the colors are just glorious. These pics were taken at Pink Mountain BC. Such a beautiful time of year to be out in the wilderness.
Just about at the top of Pink Mountain
The ranch where we were camped, took this picture from a long way up!
Lots of wild low bush blueberries and cranberries.
The cows home from the summer range.
This little one is only two weeks old and was born out on the range .
