Although I expect that when she gets home that she will sleep for 2 days. She's been working so hard since she's been here. Today she's quilting her last quilts, 2 charity baby quilt panels. Someone in her guild proposed that they make baby quilts for some charity and then proceeded to bring in a stack of really cheap baby quilt panels! Ugh. They are fine practice but not fun. She says these are the last of these that she will be doing.
Yesterday's lesson was the ribbon meander. Truthfully yesterday's lesson was in slowing down. Mom quilts about 100 miles an hour so it doesn't leave her any time to think about where she's going next. I'm trying to convince her to slow down a bit.....actually slow down a lot.
You can see that there's more fruit fabric here. This quilt is OFFICIALLY the end of fruit and vegetable fabric from out stashes.
This quilt has all kinds of scraps in it so the fruits and veggies don't stand out. This is a pattern that she's made several times and it always looks nice. You can see that this is a big one. We intended to use a flannel sheet in it to make a summer quilt but we both forgot. On well, she has a nice new autumn quilt for her bed now.
I'm happy to be getting back in the dye studio today. My knee is much better. The break was good for my knee and for my internet presence. I'm about halfway done building the new website and I'm excited to get it finished so you can see it too.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
