More Shouts from Ireland!
Wow! This has been a week for Shout Outs!
I heard from Siobhan that she had seen that Quiltville's Quips & Snips was mentioned in the 2nd edition of Irish Quilting! How cool is that?
So I had to go searching for a magazine cover. Turns out Jane Weston is also listed! And I tell you, her photo shoots are much better than mine. so please follow the link to see the layout!
I'm feeling mostly better. I wish it was more than that, but I'll take it.
Today I'm going to work on a couple projects with my friend Mary at her house in Asheboro, and then do a book signing for her guild. When I presented my workshops and programs, my book hadn't been released yet..so this is kind of a replay. Impromptu but fun! We'll meet up with other friends for dinner before hand.
One of those "things" is binding my "Just Quilt It" Wonky Log Cabin that I just finished the hand quilting on while at retreat. The colors are off in these photos...really, it's more of a red/purple than a blue purple...and I hope you can see the stitching...I took the pics outside on the deck where I thought the light was better. There are fans in the center, a zig zag in the black borders (Thanks to Lucy for turning me onto the Hera marker!) and I drew freehand feathers in the large purple areas before quilting them...kind of Reverse Long Arm training I guess! If I can draw it with a quilting machine,I can draw it with a chalk pencil and hand quilt it too, right? Who woulda thought?!
Have a great day everyone!
