Hey there! Mucho sewing and quilting has been going on here around my house. I finished quilting this quilt for our LQS (Wool and Cotton)
I made my blocks for my BeeFF 12 group. These are going to go into a quilt for Karen's 10 year old son.
I quilted my swoon quilt. It took a ton of thread and much longer than I thought it would. But it is finished now and I am ready to bind it.
I also finished quilting this strip quilt this morning. I really wanted to do some really simple quilting after all the detail I put into the Swoon quilt. I am going to bind this with green. I think it will look great. It is already one of my favorite quilts. I used some very special hand dyed fabric from Cherrywood Hand Dyes and some of my favorite lime greens.
I am going to put up a tutorial for this quilt (or one like it using Jelly Rolls) on my other blog soon. There are also more pictures of the quilts on my Tia Curtis Quilts blog and a bit more about my process for both the quilting and the making of the quilts.
As you can see, my Bernina 820 is back. It seems to be working well. I am going to bind these 2 quilts and see how things go. I may just sell the machine on Craigs list. I have learned a great deal while the machine was away. I have had a great deal of time for introspection....I don't think I NEED this machine. I like the machine and I want the machine, but I don't NEED it.
Here is a fabric pull for my next quilt. It is going to be a Hero Quilt for Chief Windorski's widow. He died back in 2009. She and I have talked about this quilt for literally years, and finally we are both ready to go forward with it. This flight suit has made 3 moves with my family.
This book arrived in the mail today! I love it already. Go buy one for yourself too.
Let's end this post up with this guy. He was out picking wild flowers for me. What a sweetie. His sunburn is peeling off and his teeth are falling out. I love him so much.
