as good as it gets

May's Journal quilt. We worked on mosaics in May and I was thinking I would do a mosaic, with nice little black grout lines and tiny little squares. Thought about it deeply all day. Sketched something out. Got home, hardly keeping my eyes open, I read for awhile, tried to think about getting some sleep, but this little pile of fabric I had pulled out kept calling me upstairs. This is as good as it gets. Not at all what I sketched. Much simpler, believe me.

Not based on a photograph this month, but still a simile for a name. Not really a mosaic, but raw edged pieces laid down with abandon - my approach to mosaics, too, with lots of practice on free motion quilting. I sometimes get it smooth and free flowing and sometimes run into a brick wall. I confess to lusting after a room size frame and industrial size machine. But ... this is as good as it gets for me.

Ahhh, now I can sleep.


I love this one, Diane. The colors and fabrics are so comforting. And your whimsical quilting is very pretty.
