Foto Finish- Looking Up

 


For this weeks topic 'Looking Up' I decided to look back through some of my older images although I think this was taken about a year ago so not so old really. I like taking images looking up into tree foliage.

However I couldn't resist including another image from Bali. I think this one was taken pool side at the first hotel we stayed at in Legion.

I like the black and white look of the first shot. For some reason that middle tree reminds me of a spider web. Very cool looking.

I like these kinds of shots too, Maree. The first one looks like a giant fern. Love the clouds in the second one. Thanks for sharing.
That first picture is really great. I love the dimension of it as a black and white photo. It reminds me of decoupage or even a stamp on a batik fabric.

I love the textures of the tree in the first pic. Up tree pics are some of my favs to take too.

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.
