Little L.A.

What is Little L.A.? It's a catchy challenge title. L.A. stands for Los Alamos and it is VERY little. The challenge is to find inspiration for a quilt within twelve blocks. There are so many interesting pieces of history everywhere you turn. The inspiration could be color, shape, or texture. Anything goes.
Here are several interesting compositions I found.
A ship that has been dry docked.
A gate.
A rusty wagon wheel.
Side of a barn
If you attend PIQF in Santa Clara, there is a good chance you will get to see the results of this challenge in 2012.
The deadline for my 2011 PIQF hormones piece is looming. I've finished the design and now it's time to quilt! For me, figuring out how to quilt it is the most difficult step. I don't have much time left to think about it, and I'm pretty sure that is a good thing.

Greetings from Tunisia! Just stopped by to enjoy your colorful blog while trying to beat the heat. Nothing like a little (net) surfing to stay cool. Your textile work/play is very lovely and your use of color is exciting. Thanks for sharing. Now I think I'll go put my head in the freezer.
best, nadia
