Today I talk about finishing my Attic Windows quilt binding and label. More fabric came home with me from my quilt guild. Also picked up some star blocks from a guild exchange several years ago and found the block I had made for the exchange. I have a T-shirt quilt cut out and ready to sew together. Then I took in 4 dresses to be altered for two different weddings in October. Plus I am prepping for being a vendor at the Niles Piecemakers Quilt Show October 15 & 16 in Niles, Michigan.
I talk about sewing in the camper again. Finding a jean jacket at a thrift store. Had 5 if my quilts hang at Midwest Old Threshers in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.
This past weekend we were camping. My brother’s awning was ripped in a couple places, so I repaired it withy sewing machine in the camper.
This week I talk about finishing the binding on a couple quilts. Still have a couple more to do. Quilted three quilts on Monday. Made a bunch of labels for quilts.
I finally cut up the fabric my quilt guild secret pal gave me years ago. I love the large print. So glad to get this quilt top sewn. Then I finished another Brooke’s Garden quilt top.
Today, I talk about making another wall hanging with the Brooke’s Garden pattern which is available at http://www.cornercurvequilts.com. I also completed two journal covers this past week. My original Sapphire Stars quilt is on display at the Texas Quilt Museum until September 18, 2021.
I talk about quilting 2 quilts today. Also had a friend over to cut out fabric for a quilt I designed for her to use her buffalo panels. I’ve been designing in EQ8. Practicing and learning more of the program with the Summer Games design and quilt along.
Today, I talk about cutting purple squares for Brooke’s Garden instead of red. The blocks are sewn together just need to decide on fabric for the flowers.
I quilted two quilts this week. Both are Pinwheels in the Stars. The smaller one uses 4 blocks from the pattern, with the pinwheel in the middle. I quilted it with an Innova Pantovision E2E design. The second quilt I did spiral ribbon feathers. I am developing my own style of this feather quilting design. Let’s go sew!
In today’s video I talk about teaching License 2 Longarm and Innova New Owner classes at Accomplish Quilting.
I quilted a quilt for a customer that her mom or grandmother made. Using my Swirls and Twirls quilting design.
Quilt guild met in person and had a free fabric table with fabrics from a few guild members. I picked to some fabrics.
I now have 3 baby quilt tops made from my Pinwheels in the Stars pattern. With my first version of stars with just a square in the middle.
Let’s go sew.
This week I have two short videos. I finished the Project of Doom Harry Potter Bookshelf Quilt for my daughter. It is now on her bed and she loves it. So I did a video of the quilt before it left.
Then in the second video I talk about going to the Shipshewana Quilt Show and shop hop. I received a panel at one shop. Another had a coupon for a fat quarter. I picked up a grab bag at one shop, with lots of scraps. All the shops gave a 5″ square and directions to make pinwheel blocks. The blocks will be mailed in for charity quilts.
