The Quilter: Quilting with Malke

Archive for May 2010

I’ve been keeping myself busy doing nothing for almost 2 weeks and have finally pulled myself out of the funk and started quilting again!  It’s so funny that for the last week all I wanted to do is vegetate and sleep, and this week I’m so hyped up, I’m not sleeping at all!  That means I have all this time to QUILT.  I worked on 2 3rd baby quilts (if you want to know more, just email me) and on some projects I’m taking classes for.

I’m making a selvage tote bag that I’ve always wanted to try and a new technique for me, portraits.  I think I’m more comfortable with the selvage bag than the portraits but im still working away, which is the point, isn’t it?  To challenge yourself and hone your skills,

’till next time.

Hi all.

Everyone tells me that they think owning a quilt shop is the ideal job for a quilter, and it is (not to make any of you jealous).  I love most of my customers.  The give and take, and the friendships I hold very dear.  I love shopping for new notions (even though I’m not a gadget person), and being the first to hear about the new stuff available.

I love shopping for new fabrics (duhhh), but deciding what to get can really be a hard job.  Good thing I’m not allowed to shop by myself (I’d buy everything), Blima, my daughter, is always around to slap a hand over my ordering mouth.

I love when I go places, I always bump into customers and they are happy to see me (I have a raging inferiority complex).  There is another side to this article, but that’s another story.  Today, as I write this on Mother’s Day, I’m being upbeat (and I haven’t taken my happy pills yet!).  Every day is Mother’s Day …so have a happy one!

I was awed and inspired by an exhibit I went to in Morristown NJ.  I went with a group of ladies and we were treated to a private showing by Jack Walsh, the proud owner of all the quilts.  He is a collector of contemporary quilts and it was an eye opener.  The exhibit made me want to dabble more in contemporary quilting.  I think I’m off to a good start with the post cards I started making and sending out.  I’m having so much fun!  Check them out!
