For Sky is the Limit the theme for June was Seaside. Last year we had a similar one: Life at the beach so the risk was present that those 2 quilts would look a lot a like. Not something I wanted and I think I managed to create a fresh view of the theme. I opted to go for a more abstract view of a seaside:

Fabrics used are my own hand dyed ones, with the exception of the sailing boat, that is a commercial one. Size is 12"x12". And as it is Friday I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday. Check out what other artists have done this week.

It looks like I am neglecting my blog, but there are sometimes periods in which I do not have much to show. Showing a picture in which I am auditioning fabric for a project is a bit boring :-). Anyway for EB's masterclass this month the theme is layers. I tried different sketches, but fell back on to my favorite circles. To keep it consistent to all my other circle quilts, this one will be 12"x24" when it is finished. At the moment my layout looks like this:

The circles are a combination of hand dyed and commercial fabric. Background is a charcoal hand dyed fabric.

Another layout was this:

I printed the photo and drew the circles using a sharpie. EB's comment was that it looked like an armadillo :-)). If I make it like this, this name will be stuck to it forever.
