WIP Wed - experimenting

Not much action here but I wanted to experiment with some foundation piecing from our mini guild class last night. One of our members Suzanne gave us a quick class on foundation piecing her tree pattern.

Three little cutie patootie trees! I love them. Maybe I will do more???

Blogger's Quilt Festival entry for Fall 2014

I decided to enter the Festival again this year. I get so excited to see what everyone has made. Once I see the entries start rolling in I think I shouldn't enter but I have to say I am really proud of this piece. I am going to enter it in the Art category because to me it IS art!

Portrait of my Mother at the Joslyn Art Museum "So Blue" approx. 40" x 50"

We stopped to take a picture at the Memorial Gardens also. You can sort of see the grid quilting I did over the piece. I think it adds to the pixilation.  
This garden has over 1200 different rose varieties.
Too sunny that day but you can see some of the roses all around.

One block finished of the partial eye. The pixels are sewn into 1" finished squares. Two rows finished!

I am just now getting around to posting the pic! My now, "good" friend Jennifer from Jennifer under the juniper tree thankfully, has already posted our finished blocks. Proof, that yes indeed I had my block done AND we actually made extra blocks so that our quilts would be 12 blocks instead of 10.  Jen could not make herself put one of the blocks on the back. I agree! This was so fun and I am so thankful to have met up with Jen.

Our sharing friendship question this month was on unexpected blessings in our lives. I have to say this experience with Jen has been that and more! You just never know what you might find in a neighborhood near you. Jen doesn't live very far from me so this has been a double blessing in disguise. I hope we do lots more quilting things after the quilts are done.

Here we are at that Luke Haynes talk.  (incase you…
