My New Quilt So Far

new quilt

I’ve been getting back into the studio for good chunks out of the day.  With Jon’s daughter Emma here for the weekend, today I was able to spend even more time working.  Although Jon is doing better every day and I can see things slowly getting more and more normal.

I added another piece onto my new quilt today. I’m using the technique of adding on as I go, not planning the whole quilt out.   I learned how to do  this in Gee’s Bend.    I think this is going to be the “center’ of the quilt and I’ll add large pieces onto it from here, to frame it in a way.    That’s my plan anyway, but we’ll see what happens.

Well, that’s enough for now, I’m tired and it’s the weekend.  Enjoy.

  1. It’s neat to see this quilt evolve…I think that the cool weather may be having an influence on you…it has an “autumnal” feel about it!

  2. Maria, I am so happy you have some studio time and can return to a sense of semi-normalcy and creativeness again. That is so important for YOU. I love your new quilt in progress! Sew as you go…without forethought but from your heart and your creative spirit in the Gees Bend tradition. It is beautiful!!!!!!!!! I look forward to its progress!

  3. What a wonderful amalgamation of what you do and what you’ve learned in recent months! I love that right quadrant evened out with the larger pieces. Such happy movement.
