Wonderful Quilting Day

First off here is my new little baby machine. My quilting buddy Paula gave this to me for my B-day. I just love these little machines. I now have 3 and all from Paula. She knows my weakness for these little gems. This will move up to the shelf above my cutting table today to it's permanent place.

Yesterday I had a wonderful quilting day with my friend Stefanie. Stefanie is just getting started quilting and is doing it with gusto. She bought the accucut machine and I went over yesterday and cut out 2 quilt tops in no time flat. It made such a quick job of cutting we had time for fabric shopping and lunch out. There was an undiscovered quilt shop near her house we checked out and I found several items I just couldn't come home without. This coffee fabric was just too sweet to leave behind. As my Mickey cup shows it's a thumbs up. I have other coffee fabric and I'm sure something for the dinning room will come from this.

This is one of the tops I got cut out yesterday. I&…

Greeting Cards Now Available

I now have greeting cards with photos of my fiber art. These are 5.5 x 8.5 cards printed on card stock with cream envelopes. They are for sale on both my Etsy shop and on 1000 Markets. (see the links on the right)
Today my friend Stefanie came over and we looked at quilting books, fabric and sewed some. She is just getting started quilting. She sat down at my machine and tried free motion for the first time and did a really good job. I think she may be a natural. Her first try looked better than mine did.

Getting Those UFO off the shelf

A wonderful on line group I belong to on Quilt With Us had a block swap, and this past Saturday I got my sweet Chocolate themed block in the mail. I was so excited I ripped it open in the car. We each made a 12x12 block and our perfect hostess sorted them and sent them to their new homes. My block was made by Gwen Gwinner and it is so sweet. After we got our blocks we were to make a wall hanging from them. I took my block up stairs and started to set it on the cutting table and realized I already had several UFOs on the table and just couldn't just lay down this sweet block and walk away. So I started sorting fabrics and just started on it right away. By early afternoon it was finished and hanging on my wall. I had this cute little hanger I'd picked up at the last quilt show and thought it would be perfect for the hanging. Since I had limited space I thought I'd make the hanging a long thin one. It fit the space perfect. So now when I'm standing at my cutting table I&#…
