Sailing Away!

Sailboat Block, QuiltAhoy, Quilters!

Next week I am traveling (though not by boat) to Denver to film a third Craftsy video!

I am very excited about this video because the emphasis is on using the quilt motifs in a variety of quilts.   I don’t want to give too much away…but the whole idea is to jumpstart your UFOs and turn them into useable quilts. We offer a variety of approaches to quilting a large selection of quilts.

LOST AT SEA?

While my blogging has been very inconsistent lately, I am not lost at sea…

We have spent hours writing a comprehensive script (and the tweaking continues!) and I have been working feverishly to create dozens of samples.  I hope (and expect) the results will speak for themselves!

Sailboat Block, QuiltI will have to follow the winds for the next two weeks and post when I can…please be patient!

I hope it will be smooth sailing!

What about YOU?  Are YOU working on any big projects?  How many UFOs do YOU currently have?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Yo Ho Ho!

Reporting from Minnesota Quilt Show

Lion King, Cherrywood Challenge

Good Morning, Quilters!

I am teaching at the Minnesota Quilt Show in Duluth, Minnesota–and having a great time!  I’ve met a lot of new people, viewed rooms full of gorgeous quilts and am allowed to talk about my favorite subject for four straight days in the BERNINA classroom!  Pinch me!

Lion King, Cherrywood Challenge

Today–a few pictures from the Cherrywood Lion King Challenge exhibit.

Each quilt is just 20 x 20 inches and as you can see, they are spectacular!!!

The next challenge is a Van Gogh challenge!! I can’t wait to see it…

In the mean time, I treated myself to some of their gorgeous hand dyed fabric.

I’m not sure I will ever be able to cut them up.

I will probably put the stack on my nightstand and pet it every night.

I know YOU know what I’m talking about….

Do YOU ever buy fabric that is just to pretty to put a rotary cutter to?

Happy Quilting!

I’ll be back next week renewed and ready to share!

What’s for Lunch Mama Bird?

 

Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters!

What’s for Lunch Mama Bird? seems an appropriate quilt for this week…

We just made quilt sandwiches for our Spring Quilt-a-long and Sunday is Mother’s Day.

One day I picked up a quilt sandwich that had some quilting on it–the spirals on top and the heart spirals on the bottom…and I started quilting the bird.

I had doodled the bird and the nest in my sketchbook, and thought I would try it on the scrap fabric.

It is one of my favorite quilts because it just flowed without too much effort.  Some quilts are like that…others torture us–the fabric, the color, nothing goes together as planned.

If you doodle, good things appear…

as if by magic…

Now I only wish lunch would appear…

(No thank you to the worms, Mama Bird!)

May YOUR quilts flow effortlessly!
