Completely black and white
This week, I'm concentrating on getting as much work as I can done in my day job - the one that pays a lot of the bills - prior to taking a month or 2 off to concentrate on my business and the creative part of my life. That's the point of making a major lifestyle change, isn't it? Giving you the freedom to pursue what you want to do.
Consequently, there's nothing creative happening at present. So here's photos of the reversible quilt I made at the end of 2005 for Erlo, my daughter's boyfriend who has been part of our lives for quite a few years now. Erlo loves cows, so one side has appliqued cows (all drawn by me) on every 3rd block which are all slightly different - standing, running, jumping, with and without horns, you get the idea. The reverses side is what someone described as "rivers" - freehand cut wedges.
It's a very striking quilt, but boy! Was I sick of looking at black and white after making this.
Give me colour any day!
