More "Catch Up"

     And last week, my studioQ art group met. We either meet at each other's homes or often we'll meet at a fabric shop in Fort Worth, Cabbage Rose,  which has a great meeting room. As we like to share ideas with each other, our latest endeavor has been working with elements. One of our members, Heather, has had great success with an element she designed. So she has been mentoring  the rest of us on this design technique.

We have started out in black and white. This is a collection of what several of us have done. First steps.

This last picture is my final design for my elements. I sliced it all up and inserted strips of red. Now to get it quilted. I had used the 4 as my basic element so if I like this after it is finished, I may enter it in our guild show, titled "May The Fourth Be With You!"
     I have been working on a couple other projects. One is my quilt for an Internet group I belong to, which is due in a couple weeks. The title for this challenge is "Out of This World ". I've been having fun with this one! so watch for it later in May.
     And I am working on two or three small wallhangings for a book about the first walk on the moon. I can't really show too much of it because we have been requested to not post what we are doing. But maybe I can sneak in just some teasers.
