Chandler's quilt...

Will post some images here later, but have to remark...quilt-making is not quite as easy as I had imagined. And not for the reasons I might have guessed.

The biggest problem I am running into is figuring out how to pair fabrics. Seriously, I have this stack of gorgeous fabrics that I bought from the BEST quilt fabrics and supply place in Conyers, Sweet Home Quilt Shop, owned by the mother of one of my Springs students, and I can't figure out which patterns go best next to which ones...

Anyway, I think that I have decided, and as an artist I'm fairly comfortable with the quilt being kind of quirky and funky. In fact, it's sort of what I am hoping for. But I'm dreading the moment when I bring the pieces up to Melissa's shop in order for her to help me finish it... I just know those expert quilters are going to laugh their heads off at me!!

Still, I am keeping constantly at the back of my mind those awesome quilts (Gees Mill) that were on display at the High Museum last year. They were sort of wonky and beautiful. I'll just say that that was what I was going for...


Right. In my dreams.
