This happy email popped into my inbox today:
Buckles and Belts was my Madrona Road Challenge finish back in January.
|39-1/2" X 49-1/2"|
I put lots of free motion quilting into it.
And... did you notice my new blog header? I had the pleasure of working with the very talented graphic designer, Emma, of ETM Creative to come up with this logo/header that will also be on my new social cards. Emma was a treat to work with, and you can see how she pegged my interests and color preferences. The stylized palm came from my own photo of the Bismarck palm in my front yard. How cool is that?!
This afternoon saw the last class of First Time Quiltmaking students. Nearly all of them came with finished quilts, and posed for this great photo in the entry vestibule of The Villages High School. Yep, that's me in the middle.
Note: I don't teach appliqué in the beginner class. This very determined student chose her own pattern, and tackled hand appliqué during the five weeks of lessons. She's proof that if you have a can-do attitude, you can accomplish anything you want in a first-time class!
It's been a great week so far. But whew! I'm ready for some personal sewing time. Linda
