Trying to catch up!
Gosh it's hard to catch up sometimes when you take a few days off. October finished with a birthday party for Mickey, Halloween preparations, Houston International Quilt Festival, my birthday plus the countless day to day events that occur. I've been quilting, I just have not had a chance to post. Also I lost some of my photos somehow. Here's my attempt to catch up:
One of the classes I took at Quilt Festival. Silk fabric, silk batting and silk thread stitched on longarm. Then we "painted" with dye. We can now use this fabric to make something like a notebook cover. One of my favorite classes there this year.
Did I even post the #2 Parasol Ladies as finished? I don't think so.
Some of my Desert Sky blocks.
One of the prettier T-Shirt Quilts. Very colorful! A lot of people just make up their T-shirt quilts with black, navy and gray type T-shirts.
Kadie says nothing left in here...
Kadie's rare visit to my studio, she knew I was having too much fun re-arranging my thread and was so happy I left a spot for her to give her stamp of approval.
Another pretty T-shirt quilt.
Hubby got my wagon wheel light fixture hung - woohoo! I had to hang my "Row Robin" quilt there for awhile. It will go back to my bedroom when I hang one of my Christmas quilts there... maybe next week.
See the directional arrows in this fabric? I took my cue from that and quilted in directional arrows in the "big blocks", framed by some "flames" and then a flame/gear type of CC in the patchwork for this quilt for a little boy.
The backside looks awesome!
I know he can't read cursive but it is a lot faster to stitch! The border says" Beep-Beep" all around the quilt.
More later.... Happy Quilting!
