How Far I Got with the Roadrunner Quilt

20 squares. The plan is to create a center of 10 blue-based squares, framed with red squares, followed by another blue-green frame around. Then, it should have reached bed-size.

Tiger Ready for a Walk

Mini quilt finished. 15,5x10 in.

Leaves are falling, some bright yellow is left.

The Skythian Tiger

Another mini quilt half-finished: a lino-print -- funny, the hue of printing ink comes out different, the sawtooth edge was done with rubber stamps. The lime material is a basic fabric which will be hidden in the end. Pretty skewed again, just can't help. The motif is an old one, some of my blog readers know it. It was taken from a wood carving in a grave mound in South Siberia, 2500 years old. -- On the upper edge, there are my templates, two of them connected by a scrap, so I keep the matching pair together. The board is my painting board, sorry for the messy look.

A Contrast

My own prints and industrial fabrics -- a big contrast. I'm not sure what I'm trying to say by that, but something makes me follow this trail. Another roadrunner, a lime and green one. They keep running.
