Paris Cafe Art Quilt... Done and a Rocket Quilt Started
To the left is the latest art quilt. Last year around this time, I made a mermaid quilt for our daughter (drawn and painted on Kona cotton, then sandwiched and quilted). She loved it and my son wanted a 'rocket/blast off' quilt. I had a mind block about it for a LONG time, since... well... I'm more in tune with mermaids than rockets. Finally I asked him to draw me all his fave rocket ships and BOOM! I had the basis for the quilt. It will fit a full/queen bed nicely. I'm so eager to get it all painted... but will take a lot of drying time before I can do all the sections. (our dining room table is only so big :)
Will report back on rocket progress in the coming weeks.
Now if I could just get that Light Project zine started... have not found time but hope to before school is out. Happy weekend :)
