Concept Quilting

I guess that's what I'll call my work on my slice quilt today. I have been snipping small pieces from my fabric stash and bonding the pieces to fabric. I am working on the adobe roof lines at the bottom of the picture that my friends Pat and Judy and I are interpreting in fabric. As I worked this afternoon, I was thinking of a story that I read over and over again to my son Johnny, when he was little. I felt like I was creating the roof lines of Hodge Podge Lodge! What book was that, anyway?
I was also thinking that working in colaboration with other quilters, is allowing me to stretch my skills and create something different from what I usually do. It's all good!!

Traveling America's East Coast

I just returned to New England after traveling to Florida and back in our RV with my husband. We skirted some very devastating storms and rode a lot of miles. We were fortunate to be out of range as tornados touched down. We lived through a tornado that touched down five miles from our house, three years ago, so we were familiar with the devastation. There are no words to describe it and our prayers go out for the families that were affected.

I was fortunate to visit a few friends along the way and I took lots of digital photos for future fiber art. We live in a beautiful country and inspiration is all around us. It's time to finish my current slice quilt project, and start work on something new!

I'll add my current project in progress and then post it again as I finish.

The daffodils are out and the sun is shining in NH. Happy Mother's Day to you all! Enjoy your day tomorrow.
