the frog. My original plans of having 2 squares and a rectangle as a quilt center, were thrown off by the scale of this guy. Even though he's proportionately twice as long as the frog, he's skinnier so the scale all seems a little off to me. I need to find more Mayan style reptiles to finish this off.
Remember how I admitted to my latest Dover Clipart purchase? I bought it to find critters to go with the frog and lizard. But of course....I found new things to distract me.
For example...how cute is this bird?
I mean...I'm not ornithologist...and yet I'm feeling some love for this bird.
(This is how the Santo Domingo Bird Quilt came about too...)
Ethne and I have been plotting a quilt challenge. We're still working out the details, but it will involve applique and possibly some indigenous or traditional designs that have a "Modern" feel. I'm digging this Mexican bird.
Or a whole cloth applique like this?
Let me know if you are interested in an applique challenge where the basic goal is some type of traditional or indigenous pattern that has a very modern feel. Start goal is Dec/Jan. Estimated size = yard/meter square.
