Is it February 9th already?

Recently someone on the QOV Facebook page suggested making a block a day for the month of February. Great idea, I thought! Well….. Once I cut pieces for blocks it is really hard to wait so:

Um, yeah. Oh well, at least I am ahead and not behind!
Once a month, I meet with 3 other ladies from my local guild that are interested in making art quilts. We are working through this book:

This week the assignment was collage. Here is mine:

The crumpled brown is from a paper bag, the ladder bits were cut from a damaged Bible, and the letters were from an old educational letter set for schools. Our next assignment is Innovative piecing. I am going to try to get that done this week as we have a wedding shower coming up the end of the month for Daughter #1.

Until next time….
