The Quilt Show 2012 Block of The Month

This is the first 3 months of the Quilt Show's 2012 block of the month.  It is definitely a challenge and I was beginning to second guess my colours until my daughter came home and immediately claimed dibs.  Perhaps I'll be happier when the rest of the compasses surround the star.

I'm teaching myself to watercolour.  This still needs a bit of work, but it's getting there.  I'll post an update when I get more painted.

Fundy Mermaid comes home

My Fundy Mermaid swam home today via UPS.  She looks no worse for wear and  now has a label which reads  she was exhibited at the American Quilter's Society Lancaster show as a semi-finalist.  She didn't bring home a ribbon but was thrilled to be allowed to play in their sandbox.
