A little art work and the "B" blocks


Hi Everyone,

Yesterday I did this little mixed media art girl for a friend. It kind of looks like her and she has encouraged me to do more of these pieces but this is the first time in about 3 months that I have had time to make one. She reads my blog so I want to see if she can guess it is for her. It will have to wait to dry for a week or two before I can wrap it up and ship it off to her though. Even though she appreciates my art, this is about her art being appreciated (she has had some big kuddos lately). No more hints. :)

Here is my latest progress on the Alphabet Quilt Along my "B" blocks...

Top are Baton Rouge and bottom are Broken Dishes Variation. Next comes Cain and Abel and Colored Wheel. I am having more fun with this quilt along than I thought I would. I think it might be because I get to pick my own blocks and fabrics. It is really keeping me going.

Hope your Sunday is peaceful and blessed.

Talk soon...

i agree with all the other great comments. And, I'm always pleased to hear that one quilter has encouraged another quilter to pursue a particular form of art, as your friend did with you. We often need encouragement, appreciation and acknowledgment so that we can grow in our creativity.
Great work!

I've been thinking about your mixed media piece all day long. It is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us before it goes to its new home.

I love your mixed media piece too! I think you're going to need to do a tutorial :) I missed part of the quilt a long, why do you have two different colorways for the blocks? I love both, and recognize Ruby as one, but what is the other colorway? Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
