I know – Thanksgiving is in 2 weeks – so why I am titling this entry Spring Has Sprung?
A little while back I made a little quilt with that title. Do you remember the little ditty….
Spring has sprung,
The grass has riz.
I wonder where the birdies is…?
So, naturally I had to make a “The Grass Has Riz” piece. I just finished the beading last week and got it done!
Spring Has Sprung
The center background is randomly pieced and the design elements are fused. The technique is very improvisational and FUN! I was first introduced to it a couple of years ago at a class taught by Deana Hartman. (http://chameleonquilts.com) One of the best classes I’ve taken.
I hurried through all the basic construction so that I could get to the BEADING! The writing on the quilt is done with a free motion zigzag stitch.
The Grass Has Riz!
. And here is…………. The Grass Has Riz! The pieced green background part looks vaguely like an egg, don’t you think? I guess the idea of Spring was working on me subliminally
I’m thinking that I should have done the writing in a more contrasting color. On the other hand, center stage belongs to the grass – and all the BEADS!!!!
I’m thinking that there are some birdies in my near quilting future……
