Still changing my mind

For the last couples of days I was convinced I was heading into this kind of direction. I also already sewed pairs of black squares together. But now I have changed my mind again! I can't help it but it is just too busy for my eyes. I think this design would be great with solids or more quiet prints. And I thought that going just black and white would be easy. Well not with these prints! Although I think they are pretty.

This layout decision is a real crux!

Still thinking about layout

I keep getting myself into these kind of troubles! Still not sure what I want to do! Most probably none of these.

New epp project

I am working on a new epp project. I just need to have a hand sewing project for when I can't or don't want to be sitting at the sewing machine.

This time it's going to be a black and white quilt. Technically a no-brainer since I'm just sewing squares but the endless design options is giving me a headache. We'll see where this is going.

Qara // 6

Quilt top is finished! I'm pretty satisfied with the result. It will end at about 58x58 inches or 147x147 cm once quilted.

I'm quite excited about my chosen binding too. Now I only need to make time for basting and decide on how I want to quilt it. Decisions, decisions...

Qara // 4

Finished assembling the blocks and decided this quilt needs to be square. So I'm working on adding borders to get a reasonable size.

Basel lights

Some mornings really make it hard not to stop during running and take pictures. The sunrise with its colors and lights are a feast for my eyes.

As here on the last day of January:

Or here on February 2nd where not only the sunrise but also the moon played a nice role:

And on the evening of the same day the moon kept shining strong and made me stop again:

Bird on "my" tree

I've said it before. I have a favorite tree. It sits at the border of the river Rhine along my running track. Last time a bird was sitting on it and I got a little jealous. Must be nice up there.

Qara // 3

I'm committed to this kind of arrangement. I love that the geese fly in all directions and yet there is some order in all the movement.

I have skipped squaring up the blocks and just started to put the top together filling the blanks with white fabric. So far so good.

Enjoy some pictures from a recent sunrise over the Rhine here in Basel, Switzerland.
