Quilting class with Angela Walters!

On Saturday July 30th I took 2 3 hour quilting classes with Angela Walters (www.quiltingismytherapy.com). It was awesome! Thank you Angela!

The classes were at Seams Like Home! www.akseams.com

The first 3 hours was spent learning ways to quilt the negative space in quilts. It was lots of fun. I keep repeating in my head “It only needs to be straightish!” The beauty is not in perfection it is in the overall appearance. Sometimes perfect does not look right!

The 2nd 3 hours was learning how to quilt different shapes. It was a very eye opening experience. It is a great way to break quilts down to basic shapes and quilt them!

A finished quilt is better than a perfect quilt top!

It has been awhile!

Hi World,

Well it has been awhile since I posted! I have been busy. I have worked on the quilt that never ends. Someday I know I will finish it! I want it done because I have a bunch of projects that I want to work on! I just heard in the last couple days about a quilter named Karlee Porter (www.karleeporter.com)! She invented a type of quilting called Graffiti Quilting. I have her book on order it arrives in 2 days I am so excited about it!!! Please check out her website her work is amazing.

I also got the borders on the apple core quilt!! I have decided that will be dedicated to a specific purpose, stay tuned to find out what! It will be a bit before it can go forward because it is going to have Graffiti Quilting on it and I need to practice first!

I also have worked on my split tumbler quilt. 2 days ago I finished a commission project forĀ a friend! That took 3 or 4 days to get that done and since it took the B780 with embroidery module I was unable to work on the quilt that never ends.

Well enough for now off to bed I go!

Happy creating!

10 days is to freakin’ long to not be in the studio

OK it is official since setting my hour per day goal in the studio this is the longest stretch I have done without being in the studio to create. It was 10 days. That is way to long. I need to not do that again.

Happy creating

I have all my thread put away!

Last night I finally got all the thread I had pulled for my thread painting class away! It was a huge task. The top of the cutting table was half covered with thread!!

I am still processing information from the class. I am working through several projects in my head.

Happy Creating and Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful!
