A Sketch Book of Sorts

Many quilters and artists have sketch books....I have tried, but have never been able to create a successful one that works for me. Others keep journals, again, I have never lasted more than a few entries. This blog has been the closest thing to a journal or sketch book I have been able to maintain.  So what do I do with all the creative, quilting ideas running around my head? I create quilt swatches or Works in Progress if you will. Trust me, I have piles of WIPs.  I think of these as ideas that are simmering.....some have been simmering for several years. Hmm.....maybe I'm just rationalizing but hey, a girl has to do what a girl has to do.

 
These are a couple of WIPs that are over five years old.

 

These are my experiments with fusing.

 

I have added a little matchstick quilting.

 

The matchstick quilting, although easy, is pretty time consuming.

 

I have been having fun playing with my new iPad Pro.....just testing out some quilting lines. I have never tested quilting lines before....well, I guess there's a first time for everything.
