"Captured Marbles" in progress Cindy Grisdela 2011

I’m working on the quilting for “Captured Marbles” from my 30 art quilts in 30 days project and couldn’t wait to show it! This is a variation on the pebbling motif that I like so much, but it has more of a feather feel to it. Plus it’s a little quicker to stitch than pebbling–a great addition to my motif library!

If you right click on the image, you can see the details more clearly. I’m pleased with the way this motif looks with thread that is variegated over a narrow range of greens–I don’t think it would be as attractive with more color variation.

I’m spending these rainy days in my studio quilting so all of my “30 days” pieces will be ready for the Great Falls Studios 8th Annual Studio Tour October 15-16. I can’t wait to see them all in one place! Visit the GFS website for more information on the Tour at www.greatfallsstudios.com 

I’ll be posting the quilts as I finish them, so check back often! For more information about my project–30 quilt tops in 30 days–visit the March 2011 tab in the blog archives to the right.

Mark your calendars for the Tour and also for the McLean Project for the Arts Artfest 2011 on Sunday, October 2. I’d love to see you there!
