Project Progress!

I most likely won't have any more progress on my projects as Nick (grandson) will have spent a few days with grandma and grandpa!   Nick and I are planning to go see the movie Jurassic World, which I can't wait to see!  Bob isn't a movie goer!   And of course, dog walking, playing his X box (which I understand he is packing up to bring!) and eating...which we do a lot of!

Anyway, I did quilt the leaves on this solar piece.  I'm using a 12wt Sulky dark blue thread for the quilting.

My next plan is to hand stitch inside the 'box' area.  I'm not sure how I'll free motion quilt around the outside of the 'box' area....have to do some playing and planning I think!  Once quilted, it will be attached to a gallery wrap canvas.  I'm hoping to have the canvas painted in the shades of lime green, yellows and pinks, which are in the solar piece.  Another plan in my head that I need to put to action!!   I am requesting the assistance of my bud, Joan, who does paintings on canvas.  You can see a piece she painted that I made into a snap bag for her here.


  1. Another beautiful piece. Gosh, I miss my grandkids at that age!

  2. Enjoy the movie and the visit! What creates the box? Maybe I missed a step, but your stitching looks good!

  3. Lovely Leaf with gorgeous colors. Progress is good and then you will have time to percolate your next ideas while spending time with Nck.
