In January, I began leading a group of ladies in making Quilts of Valor (QOV) for the veterans in our church. Our group awarded our first 4 quilts this month. Click a picture to see the entire quilt enlarged.
I am enjoying this year's Hoopsister's Project "Sewn Seeds" offered through Paramount Sewing & Vacuum. Here are pictures of my blocks - but, the pictures don't do them justice. Although the blocks are not sewn together, they are pinned to a board to see how they will look. I am sooooo happy with how they are turning out!
Each block consists of 4 individual blocks that, when sewn together, will make large 18" completed blocks.
Linda has been teasing us with her new star block design. I don't think she has given us the name yet, but she says it will be ready for us soon. I love these stars. I can't wait to see the instructions/design sets needed to do them. Inklingo rocks!
WOW! I spent Friday and Saturday at the Jenny Haskins Event here in Eugene. What a fun 2-day sewing event it was! Here is a picture of Karen from Paramount Sewing in Eugene Oregon, the host for the event. She is such a wonderful person and is SO good to her customers. She really spoils us and we all LOVE her.
Karen, thanks for hosting this great event!
Here are just a few pictures of the great Jenny Haskins samples we were all drooling over, plus the wonderful Janome embroidery/sewing machine Karen and Paramount provided for our sewing fun! There were SO many samples displayed all around us! It was just great!
I haven't posted in a while - just a super-busy time for me. However, I did get this little quilt finished. It was actually a test to see if I had recovered from surgery enough to sit and machine quilt. It worked well and I am happy with it. The next test will be to see if I can stand at the long arm to machine quilt there.
Well, back to work now. :o)
Dear quilting friends,
You need to watch this great "quilting in space" video!!!
WOW! Just think what she could have done with INKLINGO to make it sooooooo easy to create a quilt block in space! She wouldn't have needed all that paraphernalia, plus, accuracy would not have been an issue since Inklingo is so accurate for both hand and machine piecing. Watch this video, then read more on the subject, below the video.
After you watch the video, go check out Inklingo.com to see how it would have made her quilting in space more convenient. You can see some Inklingo videos here: http://www.youtube.com/user/LindaFranz
