New little table runner pieces and the never ending studio floor mess.

Really I love my studio floor it is my pallet, always full of ideas, colors and fabric. I don't think I would know how to use a design board. Of course I have 4 of them, all full of stuff, stuff to think about until later, maybe even 5 years later or with nothing at all, they work well for that. But the floor is such a lovely place to lay things flat, look at from several angles and not even the dog walks on the fabric, just around it. I meant to do holiday table runners and this is what got done instead.

Just a little table center piece or one could hang it on the wall. 

Maybe this could come close to being a holiday table center piece out of flannel.

All those projects just waiting!

WIP for a customer who wants her butterflies in a wreath.
For sure a holiday kind of piece.

I experimented with decorative stitches in dark thread. 

Quilted table runner, not for any holiday coming up soon.

The Studio floor is almost visible and City Scape's II is almost done.

I keep thinking the studio floor will become visible again, but perhaps it will always be a work in progress just like so many quilt projects are. I did finish another City Scape's top and I may even know how I want to quilt them now. Both of the City Scape's are made using the scraps of star quilt strip ends, then adding yellows and oranges for the lights. The sky is scraps as well.  I love thinking of new ways to use scraps to do projects out of the ordinary for me. 

City Scape's II almost done.

City Scape's I and City Scape's II tops complete.

The studio floor is visible more then less.

City Scape's and left over bits of fabric

Earlier this week I decided my studio floor was out of control, you know all of those scraps you have been meaning to do something with and if you put them away you will never see them again so they get left out. I had started the one city scape's months ago, it of course is still hanging on the design board. I also have a ton or two of orange, yellow and turquoise scraps waiting for something to be done with them, these I could change my mind about how to finish 50 times before I finally get around to it. There are always so many projects and ideas and thing to do. Cutting large pieces of fabric up into pieces for a specific quilt is oh so much easier then coming up with ideas for all the left over bits.

The studio floor, a bit dark so no one else really knows just how bad it is.
The fabric on the quilting machine is for bags, the lining as well as the out side. I thought it would make for more interesting bags.
