This morning I am headed out to the Quilt Basket in Pawling NY. If you didn’t know this is the home of the Cutie Collection of patterns, the amazing Debby Brown is one of the pattern designers. I have at least one Cutie pack and pattern in the studio that are anxiously awaiting their turn at the sewing machine.
We pause to interrupt our regularly scheduled programming with the need to visit one of these places immediately. Duck Donuts. You’re welcome.
If the Foot Fits, Use It, a lecture Demo created to extol the virtues of the usual feet, and show some others not quite considered feet for quilt making.
Like using the zipper foot for binding! Just a wee reminder – try not to use the straight stitch plate with this foot.
Ask me how I know.
And then the big push to get quilts, kits, thread and put the finishing touches on the Generation Q Magazine Quilt as Desired lecture for the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show. I’m kind of excited about this. Kits for this and the Connections Quilt Festival will have Quilters Select Batting. Woot! Woot!
Oh yeah wanna see something kinda cool?
The block looks a little off because of the bulk of the seams. As I work on joining the blocks for a full on quilt the major seams will be pressed open reducing the bulk. I’ve got to admit I love this bit. Wanna know why? I’m madly in love with the Sizzix Big Shot Pro.
I got started stitching in the ditch with 80 wt MicroQuilter. I’m a bit pokier that usual as there is much experimenting going on with thread, stabilizers and the like. Oh and the learning of the software hot dog! I’m still planning the whole cloth block, with a fabric in mind
I may go to the Oaks on Sunday…I’ll have to see what happens between now and then.
