Today I am working on paper pieced trees for my improvisational quilt. My selection in stash for green fabric is limited but did find a couple of possibilties. That means a good reason to visit my favorite quilt store soon. On this particular tree I am using a batik green. As pretty as the tree is it needed to be spiced up. I used a Jungle print that I picked up at my local fabric store. So what do you think? Oh, by the way the foundation for the tree is printed from Electric Quilt.
I think this quilt is representative of my new found freedom after resigning from my position after 2 months shy of 14 years. The best description I can give is that it is like jumping out of the nest and learning to fly on the way down. Hmmm, maybe this quilt needs a bird or two.
It is a beautiful day today with the temperature being 71 degrees. Is this almost December? I have the window open while stitching away. I'm going to work on another tree or two, do some laundry while sewing and maybe finish up raking up leaves if I can convince my sweet hubby to come and help me since today is his day off. What is your day looking like today?
