FO: Modern Expressions Tiling Scene

This is the first finished quilt since moving back to Boise. I’ve had a severe case of startitis…..I’ve taken too many classes and had to dedicate a day to finishing some items.  I wanted a simple embroidery project to get back into embroidered quilts again before tackling something larger.  This finished about 20″x20″, so it […]

FO: Another Baby Quilt

Pattern: My own from this post Fabric: An old Bali Pops set from the archives, plus Minkee on the back Another quilt from the quilt-a-palooza in Boise in October. This one is going to a friend who is having baby #8.   A shot of the back: The Minkee buries the quilting thread. You’d never […]

FO: Apartment Warming Gift for Jilly

Unfortunately, I don’t know what pattern this is. It’s obvious it was done with Bali Pop Strips. And I vaguely remember working on it in Boise. I was digging around in the cupboard before I visited in Sandy, in a mad frantic bid to find some quilt tops in order to practice long arm quilting. […]

FO: “Funky Flowers II”

This is the last quilt from the Christmas 2013 holiday quilting blitz. This quilt was started in Sue Benner‘s class at MISA in June 2013. The color is a little washed out in this picture.

FO: Hubba Hubba Hollyhock wool pillow

Now for something a little different…..this is a kit from Wooly Lady, a company in Eagle River, WI. They have beautiful hand dyed wool and absolutely awesome customer service. I bought and am working on a second pillow for myself as Jill received this one for her b-day in February.

FO: “Sandy’s Scraps”

Again, from the November 2013 Boise trip…..Sandy had some scraps too!   And here’s a close up:  

FO: “Laura’s Scraps”

So…..I was in Boise for the class with Carol Ann Waugh in November 2013……and I didn’t have any other projects with me and finished up the piece from the class. So, I rooted through LauraR’s scraps and did a improvised quilt. Here’s the result!

FO: “Rhythm I”

I took a class from Carol Ann Waugh at the Quilt Crossing in Boise, ID November 2013. Carol was a very fun and fabulous teacher and I’m really happy with this result. In particular I enjoyed the hand embroidery more than I thought I would!   Here’s a close up of the hand work:  

FO: “Frentic I”

This is the completed quilt from a class that I took with Rayna Gilman at Art Quilt Tahoe in November 2012. Rayna was a fabulous teacher and I love this technique as it is both fun and frugal!

Class at MISA!

I recently returned from a class at Madeline Island School of the Arts. I took my second class with Sue Benner, entitled “FLORAL ARRANGEMENT: Creating Fused Flower Quilts”. The school is beautiful. There are huge classrooms with a nice farm view and then there are little cottages to stay in. There are four double rooms […]
