WIP Wednesday!

I didn't have enough WIPs going (hah!) so of course I started a new one. This is my Lighthouse Quilt so far:

I fussy-cut the lighthouse from a panel of fabric I bought recently at Fabric Depot while I was in Portland, Oregon. Here is some detail of the lighthouse and the rocks below.


Not too bad, but I'm still playing around with it...this means it's still on my design wall and as I walk in and out of my studio I eyeball it to see if I still like what I've done so far. If I do, I leave it alone. If I don't, I gnash my teeth, pull my hair, cut a teeny-tiny piece of rock or ground cover fabric and glue stick it on to the scene somewhere. Then I walk away and do it all over again later. Eventually I will be happy with it and it will move on to the texturing phase.....more to come on that when I get there.

Here's what else I've been working on:

I just love these little birdies!
