What I'm working on now

I love deconstructing quilts and then putting them back together.  For this one, as usual I started with drawings from my sketchbooks.  I drew them onto muslin and quilted following the pencil lines.  For one quilt I free-motion quilted all around the image, then went back into it with paint sticks.  For another quilt I left the lines of the drawing very simply quilted.  I then cut up the two quilts, one in 2" strips, one in 3" strips, then proceeded to re-construct one quilt.  This is the result so far.  I will still go back and put backing and more batting, and do some more quilting, most likely just around the stripes.
