I've got a new quilting buddy...well not really. I've know Stefanie for years, but she just started quilting about a month ago. She has really taken to it and with years of sewing experience in making home dec and garments she was a natural with her added graphic design ability. This was her first project. I think it's made from Moda fabrics. I just love the bright colors/patterns and I'm sure this would cheer up anyone's time at there ironing board.
This is a top I finished up this morning. I now have 2 tops ready to quilt. I normally do the quilting right after I get the top finished, but since I have the Sashiko I am going to quilt several in a row to get used to the new machine. As you can see my advisor is there once again directing this photo shoot. It was so odd he didn't lay right in the middle of the top.
I am teaching jewelry classes at my local JoAnn and wanted to have a few different classes from the normal and have been practicing up on my hammered wire jewelry. I'd not done this in a while and like everything else if you don't stay in practice you can loose your edge. So after about 5 pair of earrings and a hammered copper ring I think I'm back in the swing. I'd forgotten how much fun this is.
