I spent my Saturday ironing all of this! I spent Sunday with an equally large pile all in blues. I'm making great progress toward the inventory for my booth at AQS in October. My goal is to have 90% of it together before we leave for vacation in mid-August.
So far, so good.
Meanwhile Marcy is enjoying having access to FloMo!
This weekend she quilted this monster quilt for my Mom. I know that Mom thought she was using every scrap fabric that she had but based on what we moved I think she has plenty left for more quilts.
Close up it's hard to see any sort of pattern.
But with a little bit of distance the pattern emerges. Those turquoise borders really help a lot too. Someone is going to love having this quilt. I didn't measure it but it's darned close to queen size.
Mom and I went to a sale a couple of weeks ago and she found this fabric for the back at 32% off. Marcy quilted it with a pantograph and used the new Innovatech thread. The thread worked great. She picked a pantograph that was a little more complex that the last one just to keep working on her skills. You can't see the stitching in the front at all.
This week I'm on for another 100 yards of fabric dyeing....and ironing with some applique in the evenings!
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.
