Getting work done!

This weekend I’m in Canandaigua, NY.  Just being outside listening to the creatures in the woods, feeling the sun and wind on my face, and enjoying everything else that comes with being outside is extremely relaxing for me.

Brought my next project to paint. It was so peaceful to be outside painting.

 

Two projects just about finished and I’ll be moving onto other projects!!

Time to Re-Focus!!

I am sew embarrassed that I have two wedding gifts from 2 years ago that I have not completed.  Sew, for the next few weeks, I am going to complete these gifts and give them!  This is going to give me a good focus on the work I have to do now.  I just started painting the fabric.  I am planning on finishing this by the end of this week, and I can give it to the happy couple (my cousin). The photo in the middle is the quilt at the end of the painting stage.  The original photo is on the far right.  Next step is to quilt it and frame it.

 

The other part of this is that my work area is totally messy.  I am focusing on re-organizing this space to get ready for a litany of projects I have to complete by the end of the year.

Since my teaching experience at AQS in April, I have decided to focus on teaching and competition quilts; andI will of course take any commissioned quilt work that comes along.  This allows me to have a very specific focus that I could market and expand on!

Thank you for reading this post!  I would love to read your comments!

Heart Quilt

I have the pleasure of having my youngest son getting married later this year! He’s marrying a wonderful young woman whom I just adore.

As one of their wedding gifts, I have created the Heart Quilt pattern and making it for them. This is all made from 2″ squares and the final size will be 98″x120″. Yes, a very big quilt!

This will not be completed by the wedding date, however, it will be hanging on the wall and all attendees will be able to sign their name and add a message for the happy couple. There will be a table with a piece of fabric that I ironed onto freezer paper. The fabric will eventually be part of the back of the quilt along with a blessing that will be on the label reminding the happy couple that we are all supporting them through their journey of marriage.

Not Just for T-Shirt Quilt – Part 2

Last week I finished the front of the Hankie/Memory Quilt that I have been working on.  IMG_5463

My goal is to finish this by April 1.  Today I prepared the remainder of the hankies (13) for the back, designed the back, and was able to put the center part together today.

Tomorrow I have a 16″ border to put on that will have other hankies on it as well.  The final quilt is going to be around 100″x 100″.

I didn’t realize how big that is!  It’s huge!!!  When it is complete, I will have to be creative in how I lay it out for photos.  I really don’t have enough room in my house to lay it flat.  Yikes!!  I don’t have to worry about that until next week!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Thank you for reading this blog and visiting my corner of the internet!!
