Last Beach Trip of the Summer

Today we took Chloe and Sara to Galveston even with the threat of rain. The girls made mud castles and played with Jim in the water for hours. I sat on my beach towel and read the entire Summer 06 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. It never rained on our sliver of the beach.

I read about abstracts in detail and think I will try their "Abstract Challenge" using my hand-dyed stuff and dump fabrics. I'm so interested in line, tone, composition, harmony and all that scientific design stuff. The abstract will be a little 8 1/2 x 11 mini quilt so I can finish it quickly. Or! I can do like another artist I read about that made a mini quilt per week for 5 years. Oh, she couldn't have had a day job too?!!
