Another Glimpse Through the Lattice

On my design wall...

I chose these fabrics a couple weeks ago trying to decide if they would work for another “lattice” quilt.

The process has begun.

And it continues to take shape though I switched sides of the countertop.

The fusing is finished.

I pinned it to my design wall and tacked up the rockers that didn’t make the cut for my first “lattice.” I’ll think on this for a while before finishing. Maybe another blue rocker, or 2 blue rockers, or … something completely different.

Pizza Supper Guests and Fiber Art at Columbus Arts Council

Life …

Some of our guests this evening included,
Darryl & Laura S. They are in the process of moving to Detroit and haven’t been around for a while.

We also enjoy the presence of Gabriel and Dana from around the corner.

Gabe is getting his bi-wing ultra light plane close to flying. They taxied it around today. Scary!

And then Quinten & Evie and their boys were also here.

Dana and I played basket ball with Kirby, Stacy, and Ashton using the dumpster for the hoop.

We missed Craigs, Dustins, and Joel’s girls.

… as a Quilter

This is the view you get when you walk into Gallery 2, the gift shop, at the Columbus Art Center. I am so pleased how they presented my pieces. There’s 8 of them there. Can you find them? 

And then out in the main gallery they are exhibiting pieces that are “Artfordable.”  Everything is $100 or less hoping you can find just the right gift for that special person. Here are my pieces in that exhibit.

A Glimpse Through the Lattice

I finally finished this piece of fiber art last evening by adding the label on the back. You can see my process HERE.

A Glimpse Through the Lattice
In days gone by, Southerners escaped the heat by sitting on a shady front porch and listening to the cicadas' rhythmic song. Neighbors could drop by for a short visit and spend the afternoon shelling peas and telling tales over a glass of sweet tea and a slice of pie. This quilt invites viewers to look through the lattice of the past to a simpler, slower time and rest a while in the rocker while reflecting on their own memories.

Alma, Tressa, and Pat

Some of the blocks ended up smaller, so we decided to make two separate quilts.

Thelma made 4 string blocks at home for the beginning of another “String quilt.” The same 4 blocks look different depending which color you turn toward the center.

These ladies continued quilting the Rocking Horse Quilt that we started last month.

Martha and Krista stitch on a bright “square in a square pineapple” quilt that I had pieced earlier.
