Last year seemed to be too busy to breathe, so I thought carefully this year before I committed my time. One pond I dove in to was joining The Endeavourers. They are a dynamic, adventurous group of quilters willing to take risks exploring their world. Sure, it's with fabric, but still it's a unique opportunity to express our opinion or feeling through fiber. That's typically more than we focus on when piecing a standard quilt. It's a bonus.
The quilt above has been in process for the last month, and is from a dyeing project started nearly two years ago. All the details are at The Endeavourers.
This quarter's theme is Nature, and there's no way of knowing all the ways it will be interpreted. I'm truly looking forward to seeing what everyone has done. Visit us at The Endeavourers.
Allow me to leave you with a saying about nature and quilts I from Lewis Carroll in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass:
"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again."
Please visit us, and see how Nature is expressed in our quilts.
Come on, Doxie girls.
Let's go sew.
