Here is the direct link to the latest Quilting Challenge. Please let me know your thoughts and contact me if you would like more information.
I discovered that I enjoy doing journal quilts. I never did traditional quilts per se. My quilts have to have some humor to them or tell a story. I started joining small challenges just so I could do that. The formats are usually small and there are very few restrictions. You are given a challenge fabric and a time limit. Both those work well for me. At Sew Materialistic we are also having a challenge, if you would like to know more about it, please email me.
I went to California for a wedding. It was beautiful and I have started making a quilt with the monogram of the invitation in the center. I’ll start posting pictures as I work. I haven’t decided how big it will be but I’m sure it will let me know.
Hello Fellow Quilters,
If you have an interesting quilting site or blog please feel free to contact me so I can share it with the rest of us. And no, I’m not a Marxist.
My daughter reminded me that the fabric she used for the crib set is from my store. As you can probably guess, my children like “shopping” in my store.
A challenge quilt that is 24″x24″. We had to use a robot fabric. I used the robots in descending size order (that I altered and photo transfered by myself) because I wanted the look of them coming to earth, that’s why the quilt is called “Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts”.
A question often asked at Sew Materialistic is: “Do you only sell craft fabrics?” Obviously, you can make whatever you want with cotton fabrics.
My daughter made this crib set as a gift because she doesnt like quilting but likes personalized gifts.
