Sculpted by the Wind

Windswept

This weeks topic for Foto Finish is weather. This is my entry which was taken on Somes Island in Wellington Harbour. It shows the force of the prevailing wind in this area.

The trees in Oklahoma grow with a slight bent to the north since our prevailing winds are typically from the south. We were under wind warnings yesterday. Beautiful shot.
Beautiful shot, it has the look of a bonsai. I like it!

QUILTY 365

This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to http://quiltyfolk.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/january-quilty-365-linkup.html
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project. 

Light Up Your Landscape - Gloria Loughman Class

A couple of weeks ago I took part in my first ever quilt class.  It was run by Gloria Loughman http://www.glorialoughman.com/
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am delighted with what I have produced.  I am not going to bind it but rather put facings on the back as Gloria taught us.  This was the first time I had used a walking foot.
There were 20 in the class and we all produced very different pieces.  I am noe keen to get her books and try some of her other methods of constructing quilts.
