Quick Catch Up

As usual, I've been quite busy here and blog posts have fallen by the wayside. I've got a few minutes and decided to post a few pictures of recent projects and classes, just so you don't think that I've forgotten about all of you or being lazy. :-)

Here's a T-Shirt quilt that I recently made. I was given a variety of size shirts and needed to play a little with the layout. I'm glad I chose the shadow effect. The recipient liked the quilt, which is always a plus.

This is my version of Poinsettia Millefiori which is a free download by Michael Miller Fabrics. The original quilt is by Marinda Stewart and measures approx. 44" x 59." 

The fascinating thing about these One Block Wonder/Stack and Whack type quilts is that no two look the same. This was fun to make and the quilt is at Chestnut Ridge Sewing in Millersburg, OH. There is a class scheduled for this in July, and I'm looking forward to that. I think there are a few open spots, if you are interested. :-) 

I've recently taught a couple of rug classes and while I am really not great at remembering to take pictures during class, here are a few I was able to get.

I love the greys and blacks of this rug!

This blue rug is made with twenty strips and is from a single fabric - ombre confetti metallic. This exact fabric and a variety of the color colorways is available at Chestnut Ridge Sewing

I love the placemat size rugs and this is looking awesome!

I've changed the way the "ropes" are coiled a bit because I've found it so much easier with which to work. Of course another big plus is the fact that we get a glimpse of what the rug will look like when it's complete. (It's actually in reverse, but it still gives you a good idea.)

Even though the picture is blurry, I love these browns together and think the rug will be striking!

Isn't this just plain wonderful?

This is so colorful and fun and can't wait to see it as a rug!

This is so soft looking and it's just beautiful!

I'm loving these fabrics!

This is going to be striking!

As you can see from the pictures, I've been busy and that makes me happy!

You have been busy! The TShirt quilt looks great with the shadow effect and hooray for a happy customer. The rugs are really amazing and I bet it is really fun to go back and look at the photo of the coil after the rug is finished for comparison.
