Renovations, Studio Blog Hop and quilting

Today the painter took over the entire kitchen-lounge-office and covered everything in sight with plastic sheeting.  It had an eerie look about it –

With nowhere to go, it was the perfect opportunity for me to finish getting my sewing room in order.  Cupboards and shelves filled, bookcase nearly there, and I managed to do a bit of quilting.

I have been working on my “Black Holes” quilt for some time and I can say it is about three quarters done.  This is a small part of it before the quilting.

The background is pieced like a brick wall in very dark fabrics.  Then I have appliqued lots of coloured circles including black ones – they are the left-overs from the “Fireworks” quilt, which I made several years ago. You can see it in my Gallery page. (That quilt was a whole cloth background with the circles appliqued and embroidered.) When I have finished quilting-it-to-death, hopefully this quilt will look a bit like planets being drawn down into the big black hole.  Time will tell.

In the meantime I hope you have been able to check out the blogs of these fellow SAQA quilt artists on our Studio Blog Hop for May,to see what we have been doing –
