UFO Bust Report and More

My UFO Bust Report is easy this week. I finished nothing, I worked on nothing. Well, I didn't work on any UFO projects.

I worked in my sketchbook some. The new theme for February is up - Opposites.

I did a "brainstorm" page.

And then did one for "curvy and straight."

I like this month's theme better than last month. I had lots of ideas for last month, but not many that I felt comfortable attempting to draw and then share.

I have also started on my guild's annual challenge. This year the theme is "birds of a feather" with an emphasis on "feather." There is an added twist this year, the finished quilt must be able to be hung from a branch! In addition, the maximum size is 10" per side. Usually we have a minimum of 18" per side with a maximum of 36" per side. The quilts are due at our April meeting.

I won't be able to show you much because I know that there are guild members who read my blog. But I will show you some teaser photos.

I am basing my project on this sketch I made recently. Some of the fabrics I'm using are below.

Since the finished quilt can be no more than 10" square, I've made good progress on my first attempt at interpreting the theme. We can make up to three entries. I currently have two ideas I really like so I'll be making at least 2 quilts. I may do more and then have a grouping that I can hang together in my house some where.

Finally, I'll leave you with a Goldie picture since I haven't posted one recently.

She is getting so big!

Goldie is SO CUTE! (And as you know, I'm not a big cat person, so that's saying something!) I am with you on the theme for last month. Everything that was "highly prized" for me was difficult to draw. I have been wondering what the theme is for this month. I have a hard time keeping up with everything. I like your curvy and straight doodles! The colors you've picked for your challenge look great. I'm going to love it. I can tell already. I should get started on my guild challenge, but I'm sort of waiting until we get farther along with our workbook things. I'm hoping to do something with all that by the time we finish. Have a great weekend!
