Blue skies nothing but blue skies.

 Friday my husband and I went to a concert at the Bluegate.
We left early enough to visit the fabric stores
before the show.
My mission was blue skies.
I found 6 nice sky prints.
Just could not stop at blue though.
One nice snowy field print.
And some good tree and bush fabrics.
Can you tell I thinking landscape quilts.
I really like the multi color batik
I think it will liven up some of the quilts.
I just love batiks.
I also got camouflage fleece and deer print fleece
to make my future great grandson a blanket.
Now I think it is about time to get serious and create.
I did spend some more time beading the circles today.

Circle around it.

 Found some time to work on the circle project.
I am adding accents of beads.
I will have beads sprouting out of the button.
Love the colors.
This could be part of the sky series.
Doesn't it remind you of twisters?
Got any good names that would tie it in?
Let me know.

Irons in the fire.

Ready Set  and Go.
My irons are ready to apply the first layers
to the backing.
My husband made me a large ironing surface.
Makes my life easier.
When I make a landscape art quilt
I put the background on first.
Than I add the details.
It was a sunny winter day here in Indiana.
The rest of the week is supposed to be the same.
I like sunny days.

Studio time.

 I started my planning for Under Indiana Skies.
These colors are luscious.
The subject of my first art quilt will be
this sunrise photograph taken out my kitchen window.
 The second  quilt will be the sunset  photograph
taken out on the deck looking west.
I started today by choosing my fabrics for the quilts.
I need some good blues yet I will pick those up this week.
Looking forward to creating something beautiful.
Back to the studio in the morning.
