Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Christmas is fast approaching and all of my family are telling me they are missing their Christmas quilts which I borrowed back for the quilt show. If you are interested, here is another article on the quilt show.
In the midst of the quilt show work, I have been struck by the creativity bug and I cannot sleep tonight. I bought my first pieces of digitally printed fabric and I am so excited. Here are swatches of the fabric for the next quilt which I think will be the wedding quilt for daughter #2 Becky and Todd, even though they have picked out different fabric. I will make that quilt for them later. I have fabric up in the attic that I know will go with these two but I do not want to wake up the sleeping husband to go tromping around above his head. It will have to wait til morning, I guess. Deep sigh.
I am going to try doing something very outside the box again with both the front and the back on this quilt. I'll post more details as they development.
In the meantime, I am still stitching sleeves on the 19 quilts for the second half of the show. I have yet to come up with a means to describe this next bunch of quilts. For the Holiday Quilts, I used "Steps to Make a Holiday Quilt" and talked about the different parts of quiltmaking while describing each quilt. Not sure what my schtick will be this next time. I don't have to have that part done til January 22 so I have a bit of time yet.
Well I guess I will try to catch some shut eye. I had a snack and thought some more about my project so it should have calmed my brain down a bit!
Goodnight to you all and Merry Holiday Quilting!
