Quite a while back, on a visit to my daughter, I noticed this wonderful old chair next door...just sitting there by itself ......Picture time! I love old, vintage-y things and thought this might make a good image for a small quilt.

I'm finishing up old pieces - samples I made years ago. This sample was done for a book I wrote on fabric marbling; I've always liked it but had no use for it as it was, I thought quilting would make it pop and perhaps turn it into a pillow or small wallhanging.
The quilting was free motion following the lines of the marbled pattern.
I used stretcher bars to frame the piece....
I am linked to Off the Wall Friday, Whoop, Whoop Friday and Free Motion Mavericks. If you've not clicked on the above links to check them out, please do so...It's so much fun as well as being inspirational to see what all our quilting friends are doing.

A couple of weeks ago, my daughter took myself and her mother in law - Jan to a tea at the St. Regis Hotel in Atlanta, GA. It was a belated Mother's day gift as unbeknownst to my daughter, that date is booked a year in advance. This was almost better as it was so relaxing, we had our choice of tables and such a lovely treat.
- like something from a movie...
All in all, a great day, spent with people I love, great goodies to munch on, champagne and tea and even an unexpected source for imagery for my quilts - wow, doesn't get any better!

Morning walks can be a great source of inspiration for me. One of the neighborhoods I walk in, is an older community - lots of trees, bordering on forests. The houses are probably quite dark inside as a result, but the feeling outside walking is wonderful. I think my love of forests and woods is right up there next to trees.
Off the Wall Friday and Whoop, Whoop Friday....great fun to see what other fiber artists have been up to.
