Thursday I travelled to Greenville SC to display a trunk show of my quilts. This quild is a large one and very organized. They are a fun group. I was treated to a new member dinner social and the food was fabulous.
The next day I taught a class on Petal to the Metal showing a select group of ladies how to construct petals made out of fabric strings. They all did well. A few have found this method to be addicting.
Blogger has been a real bugger getting this posted. I had to resort to the 'old' lap top with windows.
Today is a free day from work due to the storm and I am taking full advantage of the time. Where? Of course in my sewing room. Zoom Zoom!
This first picture was taken inside with afternoon sun on the quilt. The others are taken outside most in bright sun and the last two in the shade.
With this quilt done, I am now confident to quilt a few others that have these petal shapes. Rulers are now my friends and I'm not afraid to use them.
Yesterday I found fabric in the stash for the border on the second kite top. It an oldie but a cutie. Who doesn't like birds and pink hearts. Perfect.
This morning finds me quilting my class sample for a class I am teaching September 8. I procastenated because I was unsure of how I wanted it quilted. I found my answers from a friend D and it working out really well. I am feeling more comfortable about using rulers more now. Of course you can find some bobbles but it will be fine! Enjoy!
