I have been quiet for a couple of days simply because I had nothing to show. Had to finish some paperwork and pictures for entries to US shows. But I started working on a new quilt. This one has to be made and mailed to the US before April 30 so I really had to start working. Theme of this show is 'Blending art and tradition'. On the picture you can see part of the background I have finished till now. I started out with a traditional nine-patch, size of the patches are 2"x2" (5x5 cm). After they were ironed I cut them both horizontal as well as vertical into splitted nine-patches. At the moment they are pinned down in different positions on my design wall. And you can see I need to make more of them. The plan for this weekend is to finish the background and - hopefully - to have it quilted. Weather forecast for today is sunny and around 69 degrees F so let's see how far I get :-), the sunshine might tempt me into sitting outside and enjoy.
