Terrece Beesley is an amazing watercolor artist who gave me permission to make a quilt from one of her paintings. You can actually buy this original painting or a print of it at this website.
I spent much of June fussy cutting little pieces to represent the colored funnies that are the background of the painting. I must admit that I can't wait to actually make the popsicle sections, but that will be the reward for all the time spent on the background. I could have, of course, made it far more abstract...but that's not really me now is it? I feel so obligated to make an accurate representation. I have to admit, that stepping away from it in a photo like this does make it feel worthwhile.
I'm posting it here to be accountable. I have committed to making this #1 priority for the next 3 days. If I promise to post progress...I must make some.
