Blog for 2020
A look back at my creations and news for 2020!

SIDE NOTE: It’s December 17, 2020. I’m working on a new post – the first since August. And I come across this other post that I wrote…who knows when….and never posted. Covid brain is very real. So was probably written in September:

I’ve had my fill of appliqué for a while. This is another raven, using the pattern called Raven Magic, by BJ Designs & Patterns. My neighbor asked me to quilt his, then I had to make one (see previous post if you want to). I thought another one, with a larger background, was in order. So here is the thought process…..

Pretty close. 51″ x 41″. I believe the bottom half could have more detail, but I didn’t trust myself to not ruin it. “Stop While You’re Ahead”, Less Is More”, and all that stuff. My version: ” Don’t F* It Up”.

A few detail shots:

These ravens have been great skill builders. Always learn some new tricks.
