Progress Report

I managed to get my squares arranged and started sewing them into rows for the large twister pattern.  It doesn't look too exciting.  I think it will look better once I have the blocks "twisted".

My trusty assistant- asleep on the job again.  He had to walk across the pieces several times before he decided to rest.  I guess he didn't like my color placement.

Tina found the perfect fabric for the border of the pink quilt. Too bad I only had about 4".  I found some from a seller on eBay.  It arrived today, so I am good to go with that project.

I have the rows to the twister all labeled and hanging.  I hope to get the top sewn together this week...between all the games and practices.

This is what I worked on most of the weekend.  It is pure color goodness.  There will be 48 fabrics in the jelly flops this time.  How could I choose which 8 to leave out?  I wanted to take a photo when I had them all lined up on the table, but I was TOO lazy to go find the cameral last night.  The lighting would have been bad also

As I was cutting the jelly flops, I put the scraps into a glass jar.  I wish this jar would have been larger.  They are squished a little too much for the full effect.  This is my kind of spaghetti. 

This is what is left of 72 yard of fabric. No wonder I was tired.

Perhaps spaghetti is a current theme.  This is one of the exhibits in Devos Center in Grand Rapids Art Prize.  Is it wrong that the first thing I thought of was...I remember that line of fabric.  It was good for a laugh.

Sorry this is sideways.  This was a tree that was on display.  It was beautiful with all the copper tubing and glass.  

I took a picture of this peg display from the side to show how the artist did an amazing job with the gradiant shading.  

I also thought these glass bowls were amazing.  We weren't able to see a lot of exhibits, but the ones we saw were worth the drive.

Thanks for stopping by and check back with Judy to see what other are working on this week.

I am gearing up for a scrap cutting marathon with all the new shows that will be starting on TV this week.

ohhh I think the spaghetti scraps have a lot of possibilities! They are inspiring aren't they?!

Looks like your 'assistant' trained at the same quilt shop as mine. They have their own ideas on fabric and color placement. :-) Thanks for sharing a few of the ArtPrize exhibits.
