This week's lesson in Jane LaFazio's Art Quilts Exploration class over at Joggles covers Geometric Felt Quilts. One of Jane's examples was of pomegranates, and that got me to thinking about our great annual love affair with Texas' Ruby Red grapefruits.
sorry that these guys appear to be falling off of my countertop: I did turn the photo, but blogger refused to cooperate!
(C and I spent about a week birding in the Rio Grande Valley several winters ago, and went wild when we first tasted those Ruby Reds. Now we just wait patiently for the first ones to appear in the market. We are now on our second case of the season....we buy them at the Dekalb Farmers Market. MMMMMMMM!)
So, here is my cute little felt quilt:
I really enjoyed working with the wool felt....my needle just slipped through it like butter. I dragged out all of my old embroidery floss and my basket of beeds.....it was great fun and totally different from anything I'd ever done before. Thanks Jane!!
YES WE CAN!!!!
