dabbling with my new hobby....watercolor

This is like the 5th picture I've worked on.  I've signed up for Watercolor classes with Yarnell School of Art, however no openings at this time.  Soooooooooooooo naturally I went to Youtube, lots of lessons there.

I'm discovering how to use the water.....it's certainly different to work with than Acrylic paints, but I'm lovin' it.  So from time to time I'll post pictures.....so I can see my progress as well as you all

Road to Oklahoma Quilt finished

This quilt has the same fabrics in it as the Tennessee Waltz Quilt.  Both are going to grand daughters who share a bedroom.  This one is for the one who was born in Oklahoma.  I love this quilt, I named it Summertime in Oklahoma

Tennessee Waltz Quilt finished

I decided to make the TW quilt Twin size.  I'll give it to one of my grand daughters who was born in Tennessee.  I pieced and quilted it on my Bernina 750 (my workhorse) I love this machine.  I washed it so it would go ahead and puff up.  Soon you will see another Twin quilt made with the same fabrics, however I'm using Road To Oklahoma pattern.

Tennessee Waltz Quilt Top finished and sandwiched

You all know I love LIME GREEN.  Well, my friend Barbara inspired me to make the Tennessee Waltz Quilt.  I had purchased some bright yellow fabric from a friend, and of course, it screamed add lime green with it.  Here's what I came up with.  I'm giving it to one of my Granddaughters who was born in Tennessee.  I'll machine quilt it on my domestic sewing machine
