It was with great pleasure that I delivered Moon Set to it's new home. Relived describes well the big chunk of emotion experienced. I made my intended delivery date and completed one major task before moving on to a new one. Using a great variety of thread just makes me happy. I don't always know… Continue reading Whole Cloth Wrap Up
Friday afternoon I ended up in Bath and surprised Amanda at Mariners Compass. It was lovely and I got a copy of her mom's new book, My Twelve Maine Christmas Days. It's a delightful book and very Maine. (Clicking on the book will take you to Wendy's website) Wendy not only writes children's books. She… Continue reading A weekend away is a good thing.
As you saw the other day Lisa Calle and I had a great visit to Olde City Quilts earlier this week. While we were there we took a few minutes to work out a few more details for the Whole Cloth Challenge! (Note as you'll see below I am heading out for a trip this… Continue reading Whole cloth challenge update and A visit to my family
Just 11 days ago I taught Let Your Foot Loose, be Fancy & Free at the City Quilter. It was a good day. The bonus was having Maria O. as a student. Maria is a fab quilter and teacher in her own right (she teaches at the City Quilter). Maria posted this photo on fb… Continue reading Swoon and Whole Cloth Challenge Update
I know I say this a lot, but, I love to quilt. I am loving this whole cloth challenge. I am loving the process of creating. I like that after several hours of quilting the piece looks very, very different. I like that silk thread allows me to add teeny tiny stitching and detail work.… Continue reading Whole Cloth Challenge Update & a wee bit more
There is nothing quite so comforting as listening to the sewing machine as I quilt. It's a beautiful sound. As I look at this update and think about the comments on facebook and think about another project I'm working on (I think a lot!). So the question I get a lot is, "what comes next?"… Continue reading Whole Cloth Update
One of the things I get to do as a BERNINA Ambassador is blog and give quilting/sewing tips. Here's the most recent tip on We All Sew. Somehow I have manage to not hit a pin while stitching. I've heard stories and Jo Leichte shares one of her own. Once I saw where a little… Continue reading Having fun!
Lisa posted a couple of Whole Cloth updates on her blog. I appreciate her honesty and admire her tenacity in learning how to free motion on her BERNINA 750. I'd feel quite the same on the long arm, in part because no matter what kind of machine we quilt on there is a learning curve… Continue reading Whole Cloth Challenge Update
I think. A lot. Sometimes I over think things. Sigh. It happens. I over think quilts All.The.Time. I'm okay with that. I've been thinking about this whole cloth challenge, you know the one with Lisa Calle. So now I have a title and a design idea: Intertwined. I've been thinking about how we're all connected… Continue reading Whole Cloth Challenge Update
This morning I read Terry Grant's post One of my greatest achievements is not being perfect with great interest. I nodded in agreement as she talked of choosing just the right color of paint for a room based on a swatch of fabric, finally settling for "close enough". Rather than stressing out over the color… Continue reading Whole Cloth Challenge update
