What’s On The Design Wall

What’s On The Design Wall

Although I have three different design walls there’s never enough space for my on-going projects. Squished on this wall is my appliqué project designed by Esther Alieu. Loving just being able to use up my scraps for this one. Slow going for me especially because I really want to explore embroidery and embellishment. Lots more to go!

Next to appliqué is my Pam Holland UFO collection. Between Geraldine the giraffe, the wonderful thread painted cat and the cheesecloth portrait, I have truly enjoyed her classes. My dream would be to join Pam on one of her tours!

Next, I played with my Silhouette today and made a fun shirt. Can’t wait to wear it

And last but not least for the past couple of days, two beautiful quilts ready to go to their makers.

Have a great evening. Quilt and craft away. Karen

CLIENT QUILTS TO OOH AND AHHH OVER…

What a piece of perfection

What a piece of perfection

It always amazes me just how beautiful each and every quilt is, whether a simply pieced or one with great difficulty, a needle turned applique quilt or a machine completed one.  It’s no wonder why quilting is a craft of the centuries.  Here are a couple of quilts I have finished for clients lately.  The first is a beautiful quilt appliqued by Joyce.  What an artist.  She so carefully stitches these intricate pieces that none of her stitches rare visible.  Way to go Joyce!

Cyndi does some great pieced quilts.  Don’t you love the colors!  Both of these just jump out, each in their own way.  The heart quilt is a gift to her 90+ mom.  She will be thrilled.

TALENT, TALENT, TALENT…GREAT QUILTS

TALENT, TALENT, TALENT…GREAT QUILTS

When you wander down each aisle of a quilt show it brings to the top the amount of talent that goes into making each and every quilt.  Matching points, picking colors, strong stitches, pattern flow….so many things to see.  I had to walk the quilt exhibit a couple of times (would have walked more if time was there), in order to begin to see the beauty!  Here’s some more from Tri-County.

BEST OF SHOW

The Tri-County guild, located in Cypress, Tx. had a fantastic show a few days ago.  I hope some of you made it, but just in case, here are a few pictures of their quilts.  They hung approximately 265 quilts and had walls and halls full of great vendors!  Sorry I didn’t take pics of the signs telling whose quilt it was and its story…I’ll try to do better next time.  Meanwhile the next few posts will be honoring their quilts and quilters.  Enjoy!

Missed  a few blogs these past couple of weeks.  I was challenged on Facebook to post seven quilt pictures in seven days.  Didn’t quite make it in seven days but thought I’d add them in slide show forms to catch you up if you aren’t on Facebook.  Here ya go…

While I’m thinking about Facebook, does anyone else have the issue with U-Tube videos not “shutting up” if you close out of them without hitting the stop/pause on the video.  Drives me nuts as it keeps yapping until I reopen and stop the video or it just runs out itself.  Hate it.  That just started an update or two ago.  Yuck!!!!

Oh well, lots of bigger problems going on, but, just saying…

Happy Quilting, Karen
