Here's a project I've been procrastinating about since last fall. Now we're up against the deadline and I'm torn between obsession and despair.
The Milwaukee Art Quilters meet in a business space of a small publishing company owned by the daughter of one of the members. We've been meeting there for years and decided to make a group quilt as a thank you to the business owner. It's to be a slice-and-dice photo quilt. We have a photo of the owner's house, and it's been sliced into sections. We're all making sections of the house, which will be joined into a fragmented but hopefully still recognizable whole.
Photo-realism/landscape are not my preferred quilt genres, but here I am, struggling with clapboard siding, gingerbread-y Victorian spindles and molding. The vegetation part of the block is pretty much completed,
but the rest... 12 inches square but oh, the dithering about order and method of construction, materials, fabric choices.
Ugh, ugh. Just give me a pile of half-square triangles to make and let me go into my happy space.
