i have been following balzer design’s blog since the beginning of the year when i signed up for her art journal challenge. i had no idea that her blog would be inspiring on so many fronts.
she has been prepping for a class on sewing, and since i think it might be either a web class or a dvd, i should probably look into it, since i could use the help. anyway, because of the upcoming class, she has been posting some pictures of sewing projects and today she posted this awesome bug quilt she made!
fortunately for mr p (who isn’t a fan of insects) the boys aren’t really into bugs (yet), but the idea of the stitched bugs in the border (see above) is something i think could translate into any subject matter! plus i love the way they almost look sketched? quilts are handmade, shouldn’t we see the hand of the maker?
i have gotten as far as piling up my fabric on the table, and today i hope to do some cutting. eek! above quilt pictures were borrowed from balzer designs and of course the fabric mess is mine. *grin*
