More printing and small quilts

As I said in my last post, I have been making some small quilts from the prints I made but had not had time to photograph them.  Here they are.  I really like these terns that I added to the mountain print.  This piece has potential.

 The two versions of terns that I have carved.  As you can see, the style is quite different and the scale is too similar.  Try again!
 I just started cutting and adding strips to this salmon print.  I like it so far, but we will see where it goes from here.  Below are some of the small quilts that I have completed-all done except for titles and labels.

 I thought this was a great idea, but now I am not so sure.  The small piece is just pinned at this point.  I am thinking.
 This is the piece I did after the Vicki Pignatelli class.  It still needs edging.  I didn't like what I did in the class at all.  When I got home and put it on my design wall, I could see the glaring errors and didn't like the piece enough to take it apart and fix it.  So I went on and made this.  The technique has potential.

I guess I tend to go totally overboard when I get out the inks to print.  Then I have all these little pieces that I feel compelled to carry on with.  I learn something new with each piece and my quilting is ever improving if I just keep at it.  These little print pieces are great for practice and to keep me working when time is a premium and I can't be working on something more ambitious.  Two more quilts that need to be quilted.


  1. I always want to carve my own stamps but then I wonder what to do with them...the fish pieces are great! Good luck with your terns and did you carve the mountains too?

  2. I absolutely love your prints. Wow. On the one with the mountains, try placing the square slightly lower and position the focal point bird just slightly off center, not too much.
