Creative Procrastination AGAIN!

Yesterday I must have really been overwhelmed at the prospect of pricing and packing my inventory to take to the Guilford Art Center where I will be during the Shoreline Arts Trail Open Studio Weekend.

Instead, I made this little baby quilt which I have titled Red Fish/Blue Fish.

I uncovered an assortment of Malka Dubrawsky's fabric.  I think the 5" squares were a birthday packet that I'd stashed away.  I paired them with all that remained of a piece of fabric designed by Jean Ray Laury that I scored from ebay (I think) years ago.  Jean Ray Laury was "modern" before "modern" was modern, which made me think it would make a good combination.

You might want to check out Laury's website if you are unfamiliar with her.  Her work would ALWAYS bring a smile to your face.  My buddy Yvette and I were lucky enough to catch one of Jean Ray Laury's last lectures before she retired...just plain dumb luck on our part...and now we are so thankful.  She died this past March just before her 83rd birthday.  She was a real pioneer in fiber art.


  1. Cute quilt...creative procrastination, so that's what it's called. It hits me all the time.

  2. I love it! You always make the best, super cool baby quilts. Lucky kids! :-)

  3. Gorgeous!!! Please send my your muse.....I need one badly.....there seems to be a Dec. deadline looming.

  4. Can't think of a better way to procrastinate -- and look at what your off-road adventure produced! It's charming -- and YOUR work always brings a smile to my face.


  5. Very different and gorgeous quilt. It's more like a painting than meant for a baby. That baby better appreciate it!
