Play time today! Well for a little while, anyway. Today I finally hooked up a dvd player to my little TV in the studio and watched Beryl Taylor's video from Quilting Arts TV. Then I got out a box of scraps and tried this little "reverse applique" method for a small (10 x 10) art quilt. It was fun to throw together fabric, it almost didn't matter what I used, and made some blocks. It hasn't been quilted down yet. Maybe tomorrow.

Here is the strip set from the previous post. I used the circle template set from QuiltEscapes for cutting them. I am working on the base of the quilt, ran out of strata right away and spent the rest of the day making another one. There will be fun things added to the circles when the base is done: arcs, crosscutting, paper pieced spikes and fused applique. This two day workshop with Louisa Smith was a lot of fun, I wish there had been more time.
