Longest blogcation ever!! What can I say? Though I HAVE decided to move some of the postings from my other blog, A Laughing Gate, over to here and use my facebook page for general art and design inspiration and updates on my design biz. Just changing it up a bit and simplifying a little. Click HERE to follow my design musings on facebook by liking my page.
So what’s up?
Well, I have sent the newest quilt off to get quilted and I must say I REALLY loved the Scrap Sack I got from Ocean Lake Designs using Tokyo Rococo. It was perfect for putting threads and scraps into while I was working. Sits right on any table hanging over the edge. Also a handy place to keep a small pair of scissors and a seam ripper in a little pocket inside. I met Bonnie from Ocean Lake Designs at Quilt Market a few years ago and we have stayed in touch and hope to do some things together. Bonnie and Mary have some great well selling patterns. Take a gander at the Scrap Sack, my newest friend!
So, attached are a few shots of the most recent quilt in progress. There is a story behind all this but I might expand on that when I get it back and bound and take some real shots of it all finished! These are just a bit of a teaser. I also have another quilt in binding mode and will be able to show you that one all finished soon…
Even more fun, I finally tried out Spoonflower and was pleasantly surprised. Here is a shot of the fabric I designed. Now I have to sew with it and see how it sews with the other cottons. I already have a plan of course, but its cued behind another 2 quilts. Think I will also make a pillow or a bag out of this too.
Sew Sundays have been good, and I confess I sometimes sew for an hour before bed on other days besides Sundays…
All for now from The Plaid Portico!
