A big pot of tortilla soup, homemade cookies, conversation and sewing..... a day doesn't get any better than that. My "bff", Vicki, and I spent the day yesterday working on building houses, growing trees, making baskets and catching birds for our current collaborative project. This "liberated piecing" process is so much fun, we decided the end results will probably be more of a lap quilt size instead of a wall hanging. You just can't quit piecing one house, tree or basket... and we may need some wonky people, also.
You don't see the mess on the floor of Vicki's sewing studio..... trust me, it was also strewn with fabric and snippets of thread. And, looking in the trash can at the end, gave me a sense of accomplishment, for sure.
Here's some of the progress we made... my blocks have the blue back grounds and Vicki is using cream colored prints in her backgrounds. To tie everything together, we have talked about piecing simple squares, strips, etc. of the fabrics we have already used to set the blocks together. As before, we will exchange blocks .... have already put my name on the apartment house with the fuschia colored roof.
And I think a little embroidery won't hurt anything, what do you think?
