Mini Wednesday - Loads of Photos

Hi everyone! I've finally recovered from the Houston Quilt Show....hehehehehehe
First off, "A Storm Brewing" is quilted. It took me a few days to come up with an idea of how to get it done.
Mini measures 14" by 15 1/2".


This that out of the way, I've started on a new "mini" which I've names "Home by the Stresm"
I know you'll be wondering about that name when you see the mini but it's all I could come up with. I may need better suggestions from you all......
Auditioning fabric is one of my favorite past times.
I decided to use that beigie fabric as the sky...not sure what the second will be at the moment.

Found the blue shimmery fabric, cut it into a flowing stream design and moved the grayish fabric below it as a stopping point.

Brown fabric for soil and green for a grassy area.

I have a great array of tree bark fabrics so I'm using mostly the birch bark on this project.

Some of the tree trunks look better leaning or chewed off.

Add the beaver and some grass here and there. I'm liking the look. 
Got it quilted & bound. It measures 12 1/2" by 15 1/2"
What to you think?? And do suggest a better name for this mini.

I love this. White Birch are my favorite trees. I knew there would be a Beaver. Beaver Bay.

I love "Storm Brewing" - it is amazing how much time we spend thinking about these types of pieces. Auditioning fabric can take up a lot of time. I spent probably an hour yesterday choosing the binding for an art quilt.

Your Storm Brewing turned out beautifully. The beaver is great too. I am fascinated by how you gave the trees that chewed look. You have such a great eye for detail and making it happen.

I am what great quilts they make always amazed. Both are beautiful and pleasing to the eye. You are truly an artist. One can only congratulate them.

The beaver picture I would call:
Beaver - "I can do it!" (Felling trees)

I greet you sincerely

I really like Storm Brewing. I think you got the stormy sky beautifully. I also enjoy creating minis. What do you do with yours?

I love the stormy buffalo one - just makes me want to be out west in the middle of that. =) Seeing you build these is so amazing. The second one is equally beautiful, in a totally different way. I LOVE the name! It's so appropriate with the beaver and the water. I hope you don't change it.

;-}

Don't count the days, make the days count!
