November…

Standard

And all that goes with it! Shorter days, blustery days and gray sky days. This also means time for grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, extra quilts, warm socks and quilting time.

The flooring is mostly done, just some molding to finish. Then of course really decorating and putting the room back together is on the list! So far, I am liking the look of things! It is nice to change things up from time to time.

Luanne and I were fortunate enough to go away for a weekend retreat with some ladies from our quilt guild. We really had a great time getting to know and build friendships with these ladies. We were silly and serious, and of course supported each others air stitching and un sewing. There may be a couple pictures to share… some items we were both working on were of the gifting variety, so we will use care in not sharing those! We both made progress, and we both hit walls. Parts at home, on the counter. Parts left on the cutting table at home. What were we to do? Go to the local quilt shop! Buy more projects!! And we did!

I started a new quilt using a 60 degree triangle, and some Tabby Road – Tula Pink Fabrics. It will be a nice throw size! One day I had picked up the fat quarter pack, and the next day found a pattern that worked out perfectly. The quilt is from a book called A Modern Twist by Natalie Barnes. I had to sew a few strips together, and most all of the cutting is complete. I think it will be a fun piece to work on. The book can be found HERE.

Now that I am settling back into my sewing room (after a wee bit of unpacking), I am working to finish a project that I started during retreat. Most all of the blocks are now done and ready to be laid out and then sewn together.

Then there is this project on the longarm now:

I am about an hour or so away from finishing the quilting. I need to get this done as there a few other pieces that need to meet the big machine.

And then.. a Purrfect Challenge quilt to finish soon! And then… this sentence could go on for a very long time!

Stay warm and think cozy!

Quilters Who Inspire Me This Week!

Standard

There is so much inspiration out there!! Sometimes we tend to either just do our own thing, or pick a fabric line and stick to that or find a designer we like and follow their work. We will buy their books or patterns because that is what appeals to us at the moment. We get to know their work and their style and it becomes comfortable to us. And then sometimes, something catches your eye… something different from what we have been doing. Perhaps it is a challenge on the horizon for us. It could also be their sense and use of color that draws us in. While these designers and their works have been around for quite some time something sparksĀ our interest!

This week two different designers have caught my eye:

Tula Pink
Aardvark Quilts

More about each of these talented artists can be read by clicking on the links. I love Tula Pink’s choices of color. Her fabrics are quirky and fun.
