|Our guild's first retreat project 4 years ago, I finished at our 4th retreat in January 2013 in Cape May, NJ. Still just a top, I'm holing out on quilting it until my skills with the short arm are honed a bit! |
I never imagined that my idea of the stereotypical quilt lady could be so wrong! I am happy to say my daughter Chelsey has joined the quilting revolution! So as time moves on I'm thrilled to report the "quilt lady" is being joined by throughly modern 20 somethings who are bringing a new twist to an old tradition. Welcome Chelsey and all the other young fresh creative people bringing a new vibe to one of the oldest crafts. I look forward to all the camaraderie and bright ideas you will breathe into a dieing craft. I hope I can make your newly found obsession easier while providing guidance that isn't too stifling to your creativity! Also, thank you to my friend Helen from Til We Quilt Again! for her never ending support, inspiration and expertise you enlighten Chelsey with.
I have been deep in quilting and sewing since Christmas. I visited the Lancaster Quilt Show and gathered lots of inspiration while padding my stash! Here's a peek into my latest UFO(UnFinished Objects) since the new year started. I am making headway on my self imposed discipline to get my started projects finished.
|Chickadee, started in 2012, I'm sewing the binding on now!|
|A Zentangle inspired Valentine's Day Project. Started in 2013, finished in 2013!(a new concept!) A presentation for the quilt guild.|
|A challenge quilt, I designed myself...using inspiration from Ann Maria Horner's Feather Bed Quilt Pattern.|
|Kaleidoscope Quilt from the 2nd quilt retreat! Started in 2011 finished in 2013! Just a top right now, waiting for the machine quilting skills to improve(yada yada yada!!).|
