Good evening everyone!
I’ve got a treat for you ---before we sew.
This is Jane’s lovely sampler…check out the unique setting with the on point squares in columns dividing everything!
Isn’t it spectacular? From what she says, it’s an Edyta Sitar design.
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the lone star border…how fabulous!
Jane sent me a message – and though she is probably off to bed now and missing it completely I wanted to share it with you here ---
Hi Bonnie!How fun for you, Janet!
I have just discovered your Quilt Cam on You Tube and I LOVE it! You're great company while I'm playing with my HandiQuilter 18" Long Arm Machine . You're in the basement and I'm up the ladder in my loft! I am on a mission to use up the scraps from the earliest origins of my stash and I have just completed this scrappy star block quilt made with blocks from a BOM project. I laid them out on a neutral background and added an Edyta Sitar style border. (See pic).
I see from your blog you are doing a quilt cam tonight but it will be 2 am here. I'm a late night quilter but even I should be in bed by then. I will catch it as soon as it gets posted to YouTube but it would make my day if you get to read this out on air.
Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration and advice - You have changed my life!
Love from Janet (aka Englishquilter) in Bushey, Hertfordshire, England
A gorgeus loft to quilt in, and a handiquilter to do it with!
As for me…I’m ready and roaring to go with my project…I got a bit done on it today while spending HOURS on the phone with tech support for the shopping cart portion of my website. I think we are up and running now, but it has been a day of snafus so I am certainly ready to destress and stitch!
Lozenges have been on the floor all week!
I keep seeing things, and rearranging…and then I see something else and do more rearranging, but you know what?
I gave up and just said SEW THEM TOGETHER.
At this point I don’t care if there are two blues or two browns together.
So we are going to do this thing!
I’m webbing the blocks into rows..and then a big pinning job happens when I have to match point to point as I sew the rows of blocks together.
I’m sewing on my new acquisition – a 1960s WHITE straight stitcher!
I am loving her!
