Work In Progress Wednesday - November 5

Today I want to introduce a new project, my Crazy White quilt will be on hold until it’s finished. A few months ago my youngest daughter moved into a new home. I already made a quilt for my oldest daughter, so I thought this would be perfect timing for a quilt for her. We talked about fabric and layout, but when she visited us she saw my Assisi dragon and fell in love with it again. She wanted something like that! We talked a lot about the design and she decided it should be a phoenix in yellow, orange, red and blue. With that in mind I created this collage in my studio journal.
We spent a few lovely hours to make a colour palette in thread and beads. She was very specific about the colours she didn’t want me to use!
My oldest daughter designed the phoenix, which I’m not going to share yet. 
I bought a nice linen evenweave and my fingers itch to get started!

Work In Progress Wednesday is a support group to encourage people to complete languishing projects, Works In Slow Progress or UFO’s.
