Last month I had the privilege of teaching a lovely group of ladies how to do raw edge applique and some free motion quilting. I really enjoy teaching and watching people improve their sewing skills. We had lots of fun, even though we had a few problems with the fusible web we were using.
I have a few patterns that I need to finish, but I keep getting distracted….
One of my quilting buddies sent me a link to this youtube video: Tube Tutorial
It looked so cool, I couldn’t help but sneak a little try of it… 🙂 I made two or three tubes, cut them up and laid them out on the table like this:
I decided I liked it enough to make a few more tubes and make it bigger… now I have another project to finish! Oh well…. I did at least quilt the honey bun top and bound it, so even though I started a new one, I also finished one last week:
I’ve been plodding along with the SAL as well. I have almost three more stitched – just need to put sashing on and I can then take a photo and post on the blog.
This weekend I will be heading off for a little vacation to visit my friend Nora from Craft Kingdom. We have great plans to do lots of sewing, so it should be a wonderful week! I am going to take my computer and see if I can log on while I am there and keep everyone updated. Oh, must remember to take my camera… and my pin cushion… and some tops to quilt… and… ok, I’m off to write a list… catch you all later!
