Knitted Quilitng

Great Monday morning !
I was very happy with my class at Main Street Yarns and Fibers. I had 5 fun students and they all made the center Equilateral Triangle and one of the side triangles. I knitted the sample below , and I was amazed as I took its picture that I had created a Flying Geese block. This is my Paper Piecing 101 Class. I will be teaching at the Dragon Fly Quilt Shop October 17Th. It's "my own pattern' as in me and Electric Quilt.
This class I am teaching Sept. 17Th and 24Th at Dragon Fly . It is a 2 day class with time in between to get some of the work done.
This was the original quilt I made from Billie Lauder's quilt pattern. I donated this quilt to the Madison Oglethorpe Animal Shelter.


More new quilt classes coming for fall including a drunkards path quilt and a Celtic quilt pattern by Scarlett Rose.

Have a great day.

Quilting a la Knitting

Hello and here is the class I will to be teaching Saturday the 27Th at Main Street Yarns in Watkinsville. In the class a coaster will be made , teaching the Mitered Triangle with fill in triangles around it to make a square. All of the mitered knitting units have their counterparts in quilting. Mitered squares look like log cabin blocks and mitered triangles look like string pieced triangles. I have a ( tiny ) quilt to post but blogger was rude and turned it sideways so I will try again later.



Have a great day

Together one day and not the next

A meeting of the minds ? No , that's Little Bit on the right telling Ms. Julie that she is the queen and Julie is the lady in waiting .


I was able to get all 3 horses to all get along in the pasture but the success went to my head. Here they are all together and getting along. Then the next day Sugar kicked Little Bit and we are back to separating them. Julie, the new horse continues to get used to our world. She has shoes for the 1st time in her life. A nice tasteful 1/2" heel in sensible steel grey. She was a little down in the heel , hence the heel.
Hopefully there will be a post later today or tomorrow containing a small new quilt. Tune in later.......................................

A quote and a picture

Here is Julie at home ! This am I am going to let all 3 the girls out to play in the pasture !

That one made me choke on my cereal
This is the one I went looking for

Julie is not the only thing keeping me away from blogger. I am going to teach 3 classes this summer at Main Street Yarns and Fibers in Watkinsville. In June I am teaching Mitered Triangles June 27Th , Entrelac on July 18Th and Faux Farisle Hat on August 22ND.
Later dude.
