To take a quick break from my quilt, my parent's me an airbrush with an air compressor for my graduation/birthday present:) The kind of airbrush I got is an Eclipse CS and I finally got the paint today and played around with it until I had a cramp in my hand. It will be something to get used to but yet another thing to keep me busy. I've been checking out airbrushing online and I've come to the conclusion that I want to paint my gun stalk. It will be a great summer project along with my quilt. After playing around for a while with my new airbrush I covered it up with an attempt at making a gradient from black to green. Looks like I have a lot of practice to do. Don't worry, I'm not putting my quilt to the side, I'm still sewing like crazy trying to get it together so I'm not taking up the dining room floor anymore.

So I wanted to start a new quilt only using scraps from fabrics I already had. As I was putting the pieces together they started to reminded me of a painting I did.
So I decided to make another quilt based on one of my paintings. Hopefully this one is a little smother since it is more abstract. Although, I'm not sure how I will place the people on it yet, but I am sure I will figure it out.
After putting out all of the scraps I cut out I found that I still need some more fabrics. So I bought a few more on sale. So far I put in 2 days worth of work. Tomorrow I will start by cutting out the new fabrics and laying out more of the quilt. Soon I will actually be able to sew!
