The studio is all finished, almost everything is put away and best of all I am getting back to work! It’s been awhile since I have worked on a “serious” project! Oh, I have been knitting and doing a bit of stitching on some small samples but I have been itching to get back to the nests piece I started earlier this year. ( see the post dated February 26th, 2011 )
I hatched ( sorry!) a plan and drew out my design on paper but it wasn’t until things were settled that I got started up again. I’m using one of my favorite techniques to add some lettering to the nest piece…
using pen and ink. I love the look of the stippled ink and it’s perfect to use with a stencil to create text. I can’t show you the whole thing yet, mostly because it isn’t finished! I will taking the top with me to the Whistler Valley Quilt Quilters Guild Show this weekend. I am teaching a Drawn to Pen and Ink workshop and think this quilt top is a great way to show just how much fun you can have with pen and ink!
It’s going to be a great weekend at Whistler, there’s a quilt show, workshops and me giving a trunk show and talk! I understand that the talk and workshop are sold out but the show will be on all weekend – do drop by if you can! Whistler Valley Quilt Show
