Floor cloth update
Yesterday it was beautiful outside and was a perfect day for my shooting lesson. For those of you who know clay shooting, yesterday was a BIG day. I've finally gotten where I can do report pairs. Woohoo!
I came home and got back to my sample floor cloth. I wanted to get this one done so I can work on the real ones this weekend.
So first I added a last element. I'm not thrilled with this. It needs something else and I'd love to add some color. It needs to be be transparent color and all I have to work with is Tuskiniko Ink. It would be great if I could finally use this stuff for something!
I had to test it first to see how it would work with the polyurethane and you can see from this sample that the ink isn't going to work at all. So back to figure something else out.
I decided to add dots! I like it. Next I will turn under the hem and glue it in place.
It will finish off at about 24" x 36" and this cropped photo give you and idea of how it will look. Not too bad for a sample!
I also made progress on the next 2 veterans quilts and am halfway down the second side of the binding on Kim's quilt.

This is just too cool to only be a sample piece! The addition of the dots-brilliant.

Very nice! The added dots and circles tie it together very nicely.
