A Finish

The first project from my workshops with Karen Eckmeier is finished.  This was her Accidental Landscapes class.  It finished at 12 X 15 inches and was a lot of fun to put together.  The technique is way outside my usual projects and I’m so glad I had the exposure, even though it may not be one I pursue again anytime soon.

This was the first project I finished using a facing.  I used a “Super-Duper Easy To Face a Quilt” tutorial which can be found at The Silly BooDilly.  I intend to use this technique again and have bookmarked the site for future reference.

Our unusually cool weather this week has made walking delightful.  I especially love watching the birds.  The Kildees I posted about earlier are out of the nest and running in all different directions.  They are so cute, but far too difficult to photograph now.  My favorite birds are the water fowl we get to see around our neighborhood ponds.  This fellow stood very still for me.  He looks kind of scraggly, I hope that’s just normal molting.

Wow, this turned out great! I have her book and have made 3 or 4 of these small ones. I enjoy the free forming techniques she uses. It does take some getting use to and you did a great job.
