We interrupt this travelogue of Italy to bring you what is going on in the studio!
First off: Quilt-Cam tonight at 9pm Eastern here on the blog! It’s been a while, let’s play catch up!
I’m trying to get some things done before the whirlwind of filling book orders begins in earnest.
Night before last I pieced a backing for this monster. This recycled shirt version of Scrappy Mountain Majesties measures in roughly at 90’’ x 106 ‘’ and is itching to be finished!
Mona and I started working on our quilts together, hers has been a top for a while, and I’ve been pulling up the rear. We are hoping to have some time together during the holidays when she can come stay for a few days and we can quilt up her ever growing pile of tops.
The fastest way to clear stagnant stash from the shelves? Piece up a scrappy back! This one is big hunks and chunks of random plaids and I’ll show it to you when it comes off of the machine
Stitching is coming along nicely!

I had originally planned on a blue…but the more I quilt this and advance it in the machine and quilt it some more…that brown was just calling to me so I dug into my DEEP stash and found just the right amount of a brown gingham left from 1990 something….plaids never go out of date, right? It’s perfect for this quilt and is ready to go as soon as the quilting is done. It’s about half way right now.
This morning was also hijacked. I have a hair cut appointment in 30 minutes. I’m not ready!
We got notice that a shipment was ready to pick up at Yellow Frieght in Kernersville this morning and we loaded up the truck and headed on over. I was worried about this shipment coming when the hubby is leaving tomorrow…and won’t be back until Sunday night. The holiday weekend could throw things off…but luckily:
Any guesses what this is?
Oh boy oh boy oh boy!
I’ve spent the rest of the morning hauling cases into the house. I haven’t even taken the time to open a box yet.
This is the FIRST shipment, another is scheduled for a couple weeks down the road.
I’m still waiting on my invoice forms, and I can’t get started without them here. I’m hoping they arrive today.
The Essential Triangle Tools are still in production, I don’t have a delivery date on those yet. Keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned. We KNOW they have to be ready for Quilt Market in October…everything is down to the wire.
My plan is to get that haircut, come back here and finish the quilt BEFORE invoice forms show up because once those are in house, we are ALL SYSTEMS GO!
