"Swarm" by Sel
#swarmbysel is my first quilt for the Sydney Quilt Show. It's a bit of a monster, actually - I've been working on it for a year, very slowly, and it's only the impending deadline that has me working on it right now:
Plus, those little triangles in the background triangle blocks? They're 'bees'.
They look really spectacular But they're a PAIN to make.
P. A. I. N.
But it's all coming together quite nicely, I think!
It just needs to be four times longer...
If you'd like to watch it all come together, then I'm on Instagram as seldear - here.
Plain Jane Passacaglia
I joined the FB group for the Passacaglia. I'm not sure that was a good idea. Mostly, it becomes a little daunting to look at all the beautifully cut-and-pieced fussy-cuts, and then look at my own 'Plain Jane'.
Sometimes I feel rather like the entirety of online quilting is a big LOOK AT MOI! Including myself.
To Do This Week
I have some time this Saturday - it's ANZAC day, and things will be pretty quiet commercially (although the circus surrounding it will be massive, since this is the 100th Anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli. I'm debating whether to go to a dawn service, but not sure I can actually make it. Plus, I think that the memory of war and the gratefulness towards those who serve in the military is something that should be remembered in the midst of the kind of life they fought for, not on one day of the year - rather like love in the little things should be shown every day, not just on Valentines' Day.
And that's my meta for the month.
Have a good and productive week, and I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!
