I finished Tree #5 (well, except for that hanging sleeve, but I'm going to still count it. Don't tell the quilt police.) Overall, I'm happy with it, because I like how it has a range of values, from light to dark, and the bark actually resembles a sycamore. An area that needs improvement is the transition from yellow to gold on the right hand side in the background. It is too abrupt- it looks like a line, instead of the more gradual transition I managed on the left.
And here's a view of the back, which I really like:
I've also finished Tree # 6, and weirdly enough I can't find it right now to take a picture of it. (I'll take that as a sign that I should clean my sewing room!)
But here you can see it during the basting:
I also made this quilt with LED accents, which I'm tentatively calling "Effervescent."
I'm still working on a video to show the LEDs in action.
And to finish off the year, an LED bracelet. It's hard to tell from the picture, but there is a twinkling light in the middle of the star.
And one last highlight from 2014- Seeing my quilts hanging in the Fine Arts division at the Ohio State Fair.
I hope 2014 was full of happy and productive quilting for you too. Here's to a great 2015!
