I started Staten Island Sunset at MQX and need to do a bit of frogging before I continue. In the mean time I have another idea that may or may not be part of the “City” series of quilts or I have another idea rambling around in my head. With all of the wrought iron/metal I’ve taken photos of over the years I’m giving consideration to a design incorporating the feel of the images. See this beautiful piece of hand dyed silk organza? Esterita Austin made this. I called her on a Friday, listened to her describe this to me and purchased it sight unseen. I love it!!! Down the road I may just do this again, call Esterita let her describe the colors to me and purchase more hand dyed silk organza. I love serendipity and I usually end up with yet another favorite quilt.
This will be Mistyfused to a beautiful piece of Robert Kaufman Radiance. Radiance makes me swoon. When I bought this piece I bought a piece of white for Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero. I can hardly wait to see what she does with it! She was telling me a little bit and I’m excited. I’ve been quilting some small pieces for her that I’ll be able to share a bit later. I can tell you when I’m excited to be working on yet another amazing project with Jeanie. They’re always so creative and beautiful. When I sent her a photo of the quilting she liked it and enjoyed the surprise.
I wanted to fuse it last week and intended to however I ended up frogging a quilt I’m doing for a guild member. I finished frogging yesterday, will hopefully finish the quilting today and give the quilt to her Tuesday.
This weekend is full, full, full. Today I get to have lunch with Melanie Testa and hopefully Victoria Findlay Wolfe. I haven’t seen either of them in a really long time. Saturday I’ll be going to the Northern Star Quilt Show with a couple of friends. Sunday heading back into the City for lunch with a friend. I need a nap already.
