I showed you the beginnings in my last post. I finished both tops yesterday. Each measures 40". One was made with 10" blocks, the other with 8" blocks plus 4" borders. These are my favorite types of "I Spy" quilts, though don't ask me why. I just think they are a lot of fun.
My first purchase was "Cloudbreak," by Gwen Goepel. I think you probably know why the ocean view called my name, right?
When the first week closed, and the remaining quilts ended up in the SAQA store, I was stunned to find Aileyn Renli Ecob's "Philodendron Phantasy" listed. Oh my! I quickly hit the "buy" button, and it was mine. I met Aileyn at Asilomar years ago, and have been a huge fan of her work. It's usually all hand-done, but her machine work is also exquisite.
The following week, I watched the quilts sell, first this one, then that one. I pick my favorites each day, then whittle the list as they sell one by one. I hadn't intended to buy any other quilts, but somehow I did. This one is "Trail Ride," by Jennifer Landau. I should have taken a picture of it before I put it on the wall. It's full of texture and detail, that make the viewer want to touch it. Good thing it's hung at the 7' level! :)
And with that, I think I should see what I can accomplish today. Surely it will be something sew-y!
