Yay! Over the holidays I did find time to finished the quilting and binding on the quilt from this previous post.
I've named her "Study in Blues and Red".
This utilitarian inspired modern art quilt is available in my shop for anyone interested!

I have been thinking, as many of you have, what my goals for this New Year will be. I narrowed my focus to three things, which I hope to apply to all areas of my life:
Keeping these goals in mind I am hoping to apply them to my quilting by...
~ Exploring more with color interaction, construction and quilted stitch.
~ Not being afraid of what people will think, or fearing whether or not the finished work will be liked and accepted. (This is a hard one because obviously one always hopes that ones work will be liked and accepted, but thinking about it can also be a real roadblock to creative exploration.)
~ Simplifying the creative process by not over thinking everything, and allowing things to come together in a more random way.
I hope to be creating and posting lots of new work throughout this year, (I have some more pieces already finished and waiting patiently in line to be photographed) and am looking forward to discovering what I learn and where it takes me!
New Years and new beginnings are so exciting, don't you agree?!
