Rinsed after setting and batching 24 hours.
Green gradations 8 steps from light to dark.
Blue gradations 5 steps from light to dark.
Mixed gradations blue to green; yellow to blue; then green to yellow.
These are all fat eighths, I used plastic bags and poured the dye over the soda soaked fabric. This gives the fabric the marbled look. Most will become leaves.
I want to send a quick recovery to a sweet friend in Florida – sending thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

Last week I walked on our local lake beach and came across several white feathers. Today I made a small art quilt. 11″ x 8″. I felted a feather with wool roving and beaded the spine with clear seed beads. Then attached my found feathers and used a simple running stitch to make the words. It is then fused it to a cotton backing with yarn around the edge.
I learned that white feathers are said to be kisses from heaven. I will take it!

I completed one project. (The bird quilt in the previous post) I decided to do a bit of studio cleaning.
I have thrown away a trash bag full of fabric scraps too small to do anything with and stumbled on some pin cushions that were started in the spring. I received a 2.5 inch pack of Moda fabric. Don’t remember the “line” but it had muted colors. I made these pin cushion “blanks” at retreat at Sunset Texas – great retreat center by the way. So I filled them with Bird Gravel’nGrit today and closed them up. I like having small pin cushions around, I can keep a project worth of needles and pins on each one. Storing each with the project. I can keep the type of pin separate on each cushion or keep needles in a separate cushion. The small pin cushions measure about 1.5″ square and the large cushions measure about 2.5″ square.

I have completed the bird quilt. This has been a labor of fun. These little guys each have a personality.
I have been writing the instructions for each of the 12 birds and am offering them to a small select group of ladies out of Grapevine Texas. They have enjoyed making them. One brave soul is making two quilts! But it is so fun and a little addictive!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Been busy but got this project loaded. I have been working hard to get instructions written for these blocks.
Have a wonderful weekend. Happy father’s day as I know I will not post before this Sunday.

This cute little pillow was designed and stitched up today. I struggled with the design and tried to make it more complicated than it needed to be. But I like the result. This will be a pattern and is part of a quilt designed by me and hopefully will be offered at Ozonequilts.com. Thank you for taking a look!

I pieced this top for a baby boy, who is not yet named. The colors that I was told were gray and spearmint. Well this is my interpretation.
This will end up to be 45″ square after I quilt it. I thought about putting the baby’s initial in the center. (Please note no baby name yet) I will not do that for this quilt – but the design lends itself well to that. I think I will write the pattern for this quilt – it was easy to put together but the pattern may be a little involved to write to result in an understandable document. I will have to think on that one.
Have a great day today. Look up and be grateful!
