Here Fishy Fishy Fishy…

This past Saturday Queenie attended Sharon Schamber’s NewYork Beauty workshop.  It was sponsored by the Phoenix Modern Quilt GuildBoy, oh boy, was it fun!!!  This is my finished block.
Sharon’s Piec-lique technique makes complex and curved piecing very approachable. So much so the next day I adventured (as Queenie has been known to do) with this newly learned technique and created this fun little wonky dice block.
I will definitely keep this technique in my bag of tricks going forward!!!
Here is a sneak peak of the Queenie Mother’s quilt I quilted with Sir Owen the Innova.  I will do a whole post on this beauty later this month.  The Queenie Mother has named it “Arabian Nights” - a fine name indeed.
Next up on Sir Owen is the Queenie Mother’s Blue Birds quilt.
 I’m experimenting with some abstract Queen Anne’s Lace in the boarders…
And foaming surf in the multi-purple squares.
Here's a shot from the back of the quilt... 
I took this shot from underneath Sir Owen and the machine’s light from the other side is glowing through… A little pre-Halloween vibe in the studio. (insert Bwahahaha)
 
Whilst composing this post Queenie drew a complete blank regarding a title. So, I took this wee snap…  
… and there you have it, Fishy-s!

Until next time.
Have a great day!

I can't decide which one I like best. Arabian Nights and Queen Anne's Lace are both very colorful. Love the Blue Birds too.

Blessings, Viv

Love the new technique! It's interesting to look at, and you nailed it! I love the Arabian nights quilt too! I can never decide between a rustic and sweet Victorian looking decor or something a bit more gypsy. This meets me in the middle as it is a sweet homemade quilt but also ARABIAN. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Neat stuff going on there! I'm really digging that Queen Anne's lace work combined with the foaming surf. They're working well together. Lots of pretty things there right now!
