Piece and Peace

Happy July 17th 2016

  

I almost met Carrie Bloomston in 2015 but her devotion to summers off with her kids kept her from coming to Atlanta/Athens to promote her book A Little Spark. This week Carrie blogged about Amy Butler's new book Piece Keeping and the Blog Tour that Carrie participated in by creating the project she is modeling below.  


The rest of the Blog Tour participants work can be seen by clicking on the words Amy Butler  

Some quilting at the farm and at Judy's and some of the 2016 cow crop are pictured below.





Calving started March 18

Michelle's Quilt

Sunday, Fresh from the Farm 

Shocking how difficult it is to get all the planets aligned and post a video here. 
Shocking that Facebook now has a "live feature" 
Look out world pocket dialing just took on new meaning.

A week in the month of june give or take a day or 2

I am happy that my ad in Flagpole magazine was answered by lovely Emily (left) . Emily and Ginni had 3 days of class at Crooked Pine Quilts in June. Ginni  completed her 2nd quilt's center panel and Emily is turning this 4 patch into her 1st quilt. I now offer house calls to set up a permanent sewing area in homes as making a small area devoted to one's art is key.

Blue for a day!

A picture is better than words , but a few to 'splain. 

 I took an old shirt and dip dyed it then as it still wasn't what I wanted I went to http://www.seaislandindigo.net/ dye day and dipped it in indigo , natural grown on the earth indigo.

Everyone has a quilt story!

I love that more often that not , when  I engage in conversation, most likely I will get to hear a quilt story. Some watched a much loved family member making a quilt. Others started a quilt in college or when a baby was on the way. I have made a lot of quilts , given them away , sold some , and finished some for both other quilters and just regular folk that want to save a family heirloom. 
Someday, I hope to meet the artist named Carrie Bloomston . Her vision of telling one's story is one I embrace and am determined to share with one and all. Every person has a story and most story's have a quilt in them , if not as leading lady than as a very important extra. If you love quilts and live around Danielsville Ga ( a suburb , giggle, of Athens, Ga. ) bring a quilt or just come and look. I plan to be sewing , on a quilt of course. 
Sew Something y'all !!!
