After spending months, then years trying to renew my once intense interest in quilting, it was only after giving up on the idea entirely that I now find myself bitten with the art quilting bug. I pulled out a panel that I bought a year ago, and sandwiched it in preparation for hand-quilting.

The strange thing is that I am not really a fan of panels - but something about the colors and design of this one..... It's a Hoffman called Cityscape.

My intent is to hand-quilt so the individual buildings pop. I'm using a dark orange thread.

I've been looking at embellished art quilts online. These inspirations have caused my mind to wander.  A trip to Michael's did not help.

I'm not sure Cityscape will be enhanced with embellishments. It may be prettier without. But I'm thinking about attempting a Day of the Dead quilted skull. Now if I can just get it out of my head and into fabric.....


  1. Welcome back to the quilting world!

  2. That is such a beautiful panel! Looks like a joy to work on. Ooh, an embellished Dia de los Muertos quilt! So nice to see you getting your creative groove back.

  3. Thank you for your kind words ladies! :)

  4. Welcome back! We have missed you and your creative side quite a lot.
    There is nothing more stimulating than a challenge! Enjoy the new project! Looking forward to see the results.


Your comments brighten my day. :-)
