I’m getting excited. Next week I head south to the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton Virginia. I will be helping out Deb Tucker at the Studio 180 Design Booth, so please, if you are there stop by and say hello. I’m sorry I will have to miss my local guild “The Mohawk Valley Quilt Club’s” 35th Anniversary celebration. Congratulation to a great group of quilters.
I’m test driving my new Nolting quilt frame. It is pretty spectacular. Having a commercial frame makes my mid-arm work better. I have dreams of improving my quilt skills immensely. I bought the frame from Delightful Quilting & Sewing. Joyce and Ron Blowers are Nolting Dealers and drove 3 hours to my house in a snow event and set it up for me. I really liked them a lot! I need to take some lessons from Joyce.
I usually finish my quilts in the order they are pieced, (just a little OCD) but I wanted to finish “I Love New York” to celebrate the mountains of snow we have, with more on the way. There is a group on Facebook called “One Block Wonder Quilt Forum”. Someone asked me how I quilted my hexagon quilts. I meander mine, not just because that’s all I know how to do, but by going over every seam and center they lay nice and flat.
I was trying to be arty and photograph my quilt out in the snow, but there is so much snow (close to 3 feet in parts of my yard) I had a very difficult time getting a good angle.
So I gave up, scraped off mounds of snow and came inside.
