Today I had fun with my friend Sue, sewing a project for me. I had an idea and it will grow as I work on it so this blog post will continue on as I find time each month to work on it. This will be my Connect Threadz sew-in project for quite a few months to come.
Recently I visited Hoffman Fabrics as I am making a quilt for their Quilt Market booth again this year. I love working with their fabrics, my only problem is, there are so many beautiful ones it is really hard to choose .... and then when you do, which fabrics you'll need to create a design, a design you haven't even thought up yet. Let the fun begin...
I wanted to share this gorgeous tote with you. It's made by Laura Cromley of Ohio.
When I first started quilting, I made quilts for all my children. They got quilts for their cribs when they were young. Then as they grew up I made quilts for their beds. As new quilts replaced older ones, the older ones were then handed on to others.
I made this fabric book for a dear friend a few years ago after we had been to see "The Phantom of the Opera" together. I have used many embellishments from buttons and beads to paper and clay to re-enact this movie. Fabric books are a fun way to keep memories of trips, celebrations and all sorts of different occasions.
During the Christmas/New Year period, I like to catch up on some unfinished work or make a start on a new project - time permitting of course. It is not always possible, but this past season I did achieve more than expected. I remade one of my patterns in new colors, I quilted another which had been waiting for over a year to be quilted and I finally wrote up and made a new sample for my Bargello in Summer pattern.
Due to the sudden lose of our blog, we are starting a new blog. We hope you will find it interesting and informative. Most of our blog posts will be quilt and applique related, but from time to time, we will add other ramblings. Follow along with us and add your comments. We are always happy to hear from you.
