Falling Leaves

Here is Judy's beautiful quilt , its made from one fabric . I got a wonderful pantograph for it and practiced it on 2 charity quilts . Its hard to see the leaves in the panto but they just float across the quilt.


This quilt is a small version of Scarlett Rose's Knotwork 9 Patch pattern. I am ready to sew down the bias then do the quilting.

Hopefully I will get some of the quilting done tomorrow.
Later ...

I have been busy

Remember I was told that June was clean your sewing room month. And I sometimes do as I am told. My room is now so organized its almost sickening. Here is one of my sewing areas. Here is my small White Sewing machine set up on the cutting /dye table. It is the one I drag to workshops unless its a machine quilting workshop.
This is the main chair and the Viking. I am working on several projects at once of course. Thats the only way to get anything done.

This is one of the current projects. I got fat quarters in an exchange at the Hall County meeting on the 5th of July. They are now in this log cabin table runner top awaiting quilting. I needed to practise my log cabin class that I would like to teach sometime in the fall. Its a very different way of cutting a log cabin and I have to do a lot of practice table runners to be able to write up the class. Funny thing about this quilt. DD told me I confuse her calling it a log cabin table runner she said " I don't see any Log Cabin in that quilt , mama." It is hard to see in my picture but the border print is a wonderful Jiney Beyer print.


More of my clean room and other projects tomorrow or ....

Very Cool Quilt


This quilt was made by L. and it is a quilt for a friend with cancer. There are lots of spaces for more friends to sign their words of encouragment .

I quilted it by sewing in an arc and it looked like apple core from the back. No picture of the back. Sigh..
Lots of new projects and quilt classes on the horizon, both ones I will teach and ones I will be a participant.
More soon.
