This potted daffodil is as close as I am getting to Spring right now but it is a good reminder of things to come…
Meanwhile I have been working on my Naperville Modern Quilt Guild challenge Modern in the City. I started with a photograph I took in Chicago,
and played with it a little…
I decided to go with a green theme and made this…
and a close-up.
I heard some nice comments but I wasn’t really happy. The dark green was too dark, the light fabrics disappeared and there was something not quite right with the overall composition. When I’m teaching I always reassure students, “it’s only fabric, you can always make another one.” So I did!
Still green, but a different choice of fabrics and a slight change to the buildings in the middle. Lots of quilting, all completed with the walking foot. Now I’m happy… Spring in the City.
Yesterday I started a new project. Here’s a sneak peak…

And just in case you were worried I haven’t had time to see my grandchildren? Benjamin and Ruby came to see me last Friday.
Benjamin will now pose for a picture.
Ruby? Not so much.
That’s peanut butter on her face…
I love your challenge quilt Catherine! I think the change in perspective looks great.
love your Chicago quilt. Looks fantastic
