Figures at the Beach
Henri Charles Manguin (1874-1949)
Good Morning, Quilters!
Slow and steady wins the race! I have to keep reminding myself of that…
In the past few weeks, I have had only a few minutes at a time to work on my Nutcracker quilt.
I know that is something you all understand!
I really loved the ideas for increasing the size of the smaller pattern to a life-size Nutcracker. (See comment section)
I hope to find an overhead projector–someday.
For this project, I segmented the small pattern and made 300% increase photocopies and then taped them all together.
It was a painstaking process and I don’t recommend it!
Then I taped the pattern and the fabric to a large window (like a lightbox) and traced the pattern.
This was awkward too because the window wasn’t quite large enough…
I was highly motivated to press on, because I couldn’t wait to start stitching!
MACHINE QUILTING TUTORIALS
I’m challenging myself to use a variety of motifs–Do YOU recognize any of the tutorials?
A BUSY MONTH
Lots more quilting this month–including The Sunflower Sampler Quilt Show!
What about YOU?
Are YOU spending a few minutes a day on one of YOUR quilts?
FILL IN THE BLANK
A day without quilting is like a day without____________?
We’d LOVE to hear!
