For me, today was an early morning. Since I work nights, I tend to lounge around in the morning, but today I jumped out of bed and got to work. I had this piece laid out already. I changed the mountains in the foreground several times before I settled on this fabric. I need more dark and toned fabrics! Going through fabrics looking for mountains, I realized that the majority of my fabric is medium shades. Although I do like the gradation in the border, it is not very uniform-by that I mean that there are unexpected gaps-one of the things of working with handdyed fabric. There is so much variation in the fabric, often I have a piece sewn in before I realize that it is not quite right. I really like the narrow red border, and the way it lies behind the hills in the foreground.
It is time to start quilting. I have 5 pieces ready to quilt. I have been procrastinating. Figuring out how to stitch a piece is always a bit intimidating for me. But, my stitching improves when I quilt several quilts in succession so I choose the one that I care about the least to start with, and by the time I get to the piece that I am the most invested in, my stitches are uniform and sortof beautiful.
