Two Quilted Sections

What can I say?  Yaaay!  There was  sun today so I took the section that I finished quilting today AND the previous section outside for photos.  Of course  the breeze started once I was out there- isn't that just the way it goes?

Here are the two sections - one at a time.

Somehow I messed the second photo is taken on the floor - not in the sunlight. 
You can see the tag on it reminding me where it fits in the quilt. 

I also took a few quilting close-ups. 

Yes, if you look you can find "mistakes" or as I prefer to say "the hand of the maker."
They are perfect in their imperfections, right Gail? 
The truth is, I had fun doing it and that is what matters. 
This creative fun helps maintain my mental health and attitude
during these interesting times in which we are living. 
As I told my niece on a video call today, 
We are survivors - it may be hard, but we can do it. 

I challenge you to "Create with your hands and find joy."

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

Your "Quilting Hand" is looking really great--it goes so well with those hand dyed fabrics...

No mistakes in my view! No matter where you take photos, this is awesome!

"The hand of the maker" - LOVE that! We do peek through in whatever we create - and are perfectly imperfect - which is fine with me - ;))

It is the hand of artistry, not mechanical perfection. Colors look wonderful.

Your quilting is magnificent, Gene. I love the colors of your fabrics as well.

Wow, it's coming along wonderfully Gene! So important to do things that make us happy, add joy to the world, and keep us mentally okay. It can be overwhelming these days, just everything.
