Although I didn’t get a lot of actual sewing done this week, much of my time has involved quilt related things.
My husband and I took a road trip to Boston and wonderful guy that he is, agreed to a side trip to Lowell, Massachusetts, just north of Boston where the New England Quilt Museum is located. It was easy to spot the museum from a few blocks away.
The current exhibit is of Caryl Bryer Fallert’s quilts. To say her work is amazing is an understatement. I don’t remember exactly how or when I became aware of her work but I have liked her quilts for years now. I think she hand dyed much of the fabric in her quilts. The colors are so vivid and the quilting is just beautiful.
I didnt take many photos as I wanted so that I could really look and appreciate the quilts. Sometimes when I’m taking pictures I find that I’m saving it for future use (which is fine) at the expense of enjoying the present moment. And there are beautiful images on Caryl’s website of her quilts.
I did a little sewing in the car on the way to and from Boston (thanks to my husband who loves to drive so I get to sew). I finished sewing the ten stars on my la passacaglia rosette.
I spent a lot of time when we got back home pulling fabrics and basting pieces for my next rosette so hopefully I’ll have photos of another finish soon.
I should also mention that this is my first attempt to do a blog post from my phone. Hope it worked!
I’m linking up with Kathy’s slow stitching Sunday. Everyone does such beautiful work – make some coffee or get some wine and have a look. Enjoy your day!
