Brainstorming the Moon Quilt

Haven't used a sketchbook in a long time. I'm trying it again to see if it helps me. I usually store all this information in my head. It makes sense to have it written down to refer back to in the future. Also did a little playing with Photoshop Elements to make it more interesting. Click on photo for a closer view.

Hope to do lots of Kantha stitching on this quilt. Was able to get a book through Interlibrary Loan. Wish I could purchase the book but can't find it for a reasonable price. The name of the book is 'The Art of Kantha Embroidery' by Niaz Zaman. If any of you readers have others that you could suggest, it would be appreciated.

Is it the moon quilt you talked about? I love playing with my PSE too. DH told me the PSE9 is coming out and if I want it for Christmas. More to learn! Hugs Nat

beautiful lace, your first try? wow. i've tried to keep notes organized, but they end up all over the place... i'm still trying though :)

deanna7trees said...

thanks twhich aye. the teneriffe lace is quite easy---just weaving in a circle. of course, there are more complicated stitches. haven't been able to find any good books in english.

love your ideas, and your nine patches, and your dyeing.
