Back in the studio

During the summer, I didn't have much free time for sewing. But when I could, I went on piecing my little scrap blocks.
My first idea was to make a doll quilt...
I had so many scraps, and so much fun sewing them together, that the quilt ended up much larger than I first thought.
And now, I'm enjoying quilting it by hand, very slowly, in the evening.

And here's the reason why I didn't spend much time in the studio these last two months...
On this picture, little GD is looking for the last strawberries in the garden.

I can't resist showing you two excellent drawings that she did in August.
Isn't she gifted?

We also did some fabric painting together. In fact, we did it outside on a sunny day and she did most of the painting herself. Then we put down some jar lids on the wet paint in order to get the lighter shapes.
I can see some aliens in there. Can you see them too?

This week, I finally made it back to the studio and started working on my next Twelve by Twelve quilt. The theme, chosen by Brenda, is "Maverick"...
I plan to start quilting it tomorrow. And then, I will have to embellish it to make it as much Maverick as I can! ;-)
