Challenging myself

This week, I challenged myself to use the Kimono scraps I bought at the Quilt Festival in Chicago. Actually, it was an exercise in creativity to remove a block I've been succumbing to lately. Take a look and let me know what you think...I think I succeeded. The cloud has lifted!
For now, they are not titled. I'm so intrigued with other cultures and will think of something appropriate.

For the quilt above, I used three kimono scraps...well four if you count the binding. The quilting replicates the brush the deer is lying on in the center piece. It measures 16 1/2 X 13 1/4.

This one was fun to create...I have so much playing with beads, but always worry about overdoing it. Simple design is just fine for me.

Five scraps were used in this little quilt. For the quilting, I mimicked the lines in the mountains fabric. This one measures 11 3/4 X 9 1/2.

Now... back to the 'brain' series. Always thinking!
