Tap, tap, tap. Anyone out there? Does anyone read blogs anymore? I’m just wondering… I haven’t been able to keep up. School sucked all the energy out of me this last year.
Here it is summer again. My list of things I want to accomplish is a mile long! I have missed my sewing machine. You can imagine.
The first thing I did after the semester finished was to design this row called “Tree Farm” for my local quilt shop, Gathering Fabric. The shop is participating in the Row by Row Experience for the third year. They always have so much fun playing with the themes. This year’s theme is “On The Move” and reflects the agricultural aspect of Woodinville’s Sammamish Valley. I hope you get a chance to stop by and participate in the Row by Row Experience.
Slowly, I am getting into a groove and hope to finish a bunch of UFO’s that have been languishing in my closet. This was my design wall last week. Upper left is The Local, a BOM through Intrepid Thread. I think I am more than a year behind!
Below that are some pinwheel blocks that I started over Christmas break. Below that are some U.S. Map blocks using up some scraps from the Deco State fabrics designed by In The Beginning a couple of years ago.
In the upper right is Fly Away Home, a BOM that I designed for Richla of Got Kwilts and Ellen of the Grip & Stitch Discs for free-motion quilting. The BOM will be ending later this summer and I want to try my hand at self-publishing a booklet. Keep your eyes open for more info on that.
What have you been up to?
