Under the Sea on Mars and a Tree for SAQA


under20the20sea20of20vastitis20borealis20mars-mA sandwich bag can contain an amazing amount of ‘stuff’–enough to make this 9 by 12 piece I named Under the Sea of Vastitis Borealis on Mars–clearly very imaginary as we can only guess what might be there. I had enough left for four postcards and then a bit more–that I put back in that sandwich bag to provide fertilizer/seeds for the next round–should there be one.

hexagon20tree20for20saqa-mThe Tree is made of English pieced hexagons from a packet of quarter inch hexagons; sewn on a background of blue hand dyed silk, foreground of hand-dyed cotton, and fastened with dozens of French knots. It was a fun project but I am going to try hard to avoid the booth at Quilt Festival that sells these–so enticing–a small packet–not much room–not heavy–and  less than $5—I couldn’t resist the first time–but will not look their way in November.
