working large, and time management

yooge, and brown

This is a look at part of the front, and a glimpse of what it looks like on the back, of the second of the huge brown pieces. This one has a working title of Yooge Brown Bubble River (I might need some more practice titling things?). It is also 20×60″

I am indebted to Notion to Quilt for their patience while I test drive the Babylock Tiara and dither over space constraints in my tiny house. I did all the work on the circles in a marathon afternoon of free motion practice. I would have done more, except it seemed unchivalrous to impose on their kindness. All the horizontal work I did on what I now think of as my “small machine” – but which is actually my regular machine.

I have a good deal more sympathy for the posting schedule of those who work on bigger pieces too. Working big means the milestones have long gaps between them, and it can be hard to make small talk in the interim.

Both pieces are with Stephen Petegorsky having their pictures taken because I can’t cope with anything that big.
