WOW – October 19, 2011

I had the most productive week in a long time.  I attribute that to my wonderful husband letting me hold up in my sewing room all last weekend.  It was also one of the busiest weeks I have had in a long time.  I attended two classes the first one was an all day workshop by Rosemary Eichorn call Collage-Crash Course (I took a day of vacation for this!!!) and the second was my second corset class. 

Rosemary was a wonderful teacher and I learned so much from this experience.  I have my wall hanging almost done I’m going to be doing some beading on the roses and the sky and then I will need to bind.  I really love the way it looks after you wash your collage. I will make sure and show you all what it looks like when I have it completely done. 
I finished two Affairs of the Heart block this week.  I’m getting closer to finishing. 

I finished my two appliqué panels for my nephews quilt and did the thread painting (my first time!!) I’m so happy with the way they turned out. I now have two more panels to do and ten other bocks to finish and then I can start putting this quilt together. 

Lastly I put the rest of the front and back to my corset together.  Next week will be the last class we will be installing the lacing, boning and binding.

  4. Hi Lisa- I was looking at your Charity Quilt 2011 & wondering if you could give me some info about it? What is the block name? What size did the Quilt finish at? How many blocks make up the Quilt & what size are the blocks? Also, what cute fabric did you use? We have our guild charity quilt donation coming up & your quilt caught my eye. You can e-mail privately if you wish. Thanks, GG
