I’ve started the year by taking advantage of the fact that I have zero customer quilts in my que!! I love my side gig, but I love the rare breaks when they come.
A couple panels that I purchased in Paducah…
The Dream Big panel by Hoffman. How fun was that. I already want to do the reddish-burgundy one. Here are a few shots that definitely put me into the dreaded overkill category, but it’s my website…
I guess that’s enough. The other panel was a silk batik panel, 21″ x 22″.
This was my planning phase, using clear plexiglass and a dry erase marker:
Then I tried a braiding technique that I learned from my quilty friend, Laure, on the east coast, and added a handprinted bunny that was a gift from a teacher – Pam Holland.
Lastly, I finished this Siddi quilt. This was the class I took with Pam Holland. No machine sewing, nor piecing really. The pieces are added one at a time as you hand quilt.
So all these will hang in a show at the Trading Post restaurant, here in Taos for the next 3 or 4 months. If you’re in Taos, stop in! They like it if you eat there, but it’s not a requirement to just look at all the quilts our guild will hang there.
Thanks for checking in!
I miss my Ruby Lou soooo much.
