Miss Molly and I were sitting on the porch swing enjoying the cool evening air. I had some un-sewing to do and she was just taking it easy. There are two poppies tonight with more to come. I don’t know what these flowers are but they are small and very pretty. The end of the driveway is filled with these pretty little flowers. They weren’t there last year and who knows where they came from.
When I decided to make the gaa-Barge series, I made a mission statement. In the statement I said that I would make one a week and even if they were not good, I would keep them in the series. This one is not good. After the success of the underwater scene, I thought that I would make a landscape. This is part of the White Mountains as seen from a cabin where we stayed during a fishing trip.
It’s a good thing to make an awful piece once in a while. It makes you think and do much better the next time. I can only say that this one inspired me to do better.
I think that I did because I figured out a way to make Landscape Gaa-Barge and even taught a class with the procedure. This one stays in the series to remind me that not all quilts are well made or beautiful.
Next week, when there is another Gaa-Barge post, I’ll show you one of my class examples and just maybe will tell you how to do it.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
