Last Sunday a few of us Monday Modern girls met up at the Auckland Festival of Quilts. Not only did we check out the quilts, we did a little bit of shopping. I bought some blacks and browns for the dirt and fence posts.
I am really making this up as I go. I cut some 6" wide strips/rectangles and some 3.5" ones. It's probably close to 2m wide because I want it to be big and useful. The only space I have for a temporary design wall is in the hall as you enter from the front door, right under my photos from Bodie State Historic Park in California. Possibly a weird place to have a work in progress hanging, but oh well.
Once I got my dirt section sewn together, I started on my fence posts. I managed to use a couple of browns from my stash, some Spotlight shot cottons ('pepper' is my favourite), and my shopping from the F o Q last weekend.
My next step is to cut some greens to go in between the browns. Then blues for the sky. I look forward to working on this properly once school finishes for the year in four weeks.
