What a week this has been. I will admit I have been a little overwhelmed by my schedule and I still have so much to do between today and Sunday. At least I have been having fun but soon my family will run out of clean cloths if I don’t step into the laundry room.
I did make some progress on Ian’s bed quilt I’m about 70% done with the quilting. It’s turning out nice but it’s so big and heavy that my shoulders hurt after a few hours of sewing. I will work on it tonight for a few hours maybe I will get the quilting done by Saturday and then I can do the binding Sunday.
Last Thursday I attended a class about reverse raw edge applique. It was a fun day learning a very easy technique. I finished the applique in class and now I plane to do additional quilting and some embellishments before I’m done. I ordered some metallic black thread for some of the quilting I think it should add some interest to the piece.
Saturday I attended a class on painting with oil paint stick on fabric and applying foil to fabric. It was also fun and I can really see the potential for art quilts.
Last night was my Mukilteo Lighthouse Quilters guild meeting that I organized the program and workshop for. We had Jenny Pedigo from Sew Kind of Wonderful talking about her quilting and curve ruler. She will be teaching us how to cut and sew the curves in a workshop this Saturday. I will have lots of prep to do Friday to get ready for the workshop, but I’m excited for it. Below is the fabric that I will be using at the workshop.
