VeloCITY....#2 in my Seattle Series and Ideas Germinating!

Some fabrics just beg for play and my cityscapes are just that! If I were to be asked what 2 concepts do I use most in my quilting recently.....Selvages and made-fabric. I CELEBRATE my dear friend, Ryan Axford, who lived with us last year in St. George then moved up here to Seattle soon before we did. He traded his car in for a bike and this silhouette is him to a tee....all 6' 6" of him.
I have decided that fusible web projects and broderie perse allow for me to create quilts while spending time with the family watching tv. Last night's project as we watched a James Bond movie. This may very well be my most favorite color combos I have ever played with. Whimsy, fairy, fantastical......kinda fun to find the text, One is Not Born a Woman, One Becomes One....much like a flower that blossoms. CELEBRATING the woman, a creative mind and the idea that design for us quilters is always germinating!!!!! A smile and a giggle as I count down the 5 days until I am playing with Victoria and LeeAnn....What a dream that after years in planning is coning to my reality! Love, Em
