Sunday Progress Report

I have a busy week coming up.  I start teaching a new floral design class on Tuesday (why it starts on Valentine’s Day I have no idea!) so there is a lot of prep for that, as well as the classes I teach for the Michigan floral association. 

I have made a bit more progress on the antique wild goose chase hand quilting

I am quilting this one pretty heavily so it does take some time!  You can see the quilting much better from the back.

I think It is even prettier from the back…..but I love whole cloth quilts

I have a report on the Antique Log Cabin that I recently finished.  It is warm and I love it!  So glad I decided to use it and not just have it for display!

I am feeling like its time for me to sell a few quilts…..quiling is not an inexpensive endeavor and selling one or two now and then helps to support my hobby/addiction.  here are the two candidates, and their posts

I will write-up some information on them and set a price and list them on my eBay page in the next few days. (see tab above)

(I added the information and listed them on 2/13/12)

The Michigan Floral Association Convention is quickly approaching and I am thinking that I will enter the floral design contest so I need to get busy and make some plans for that! 

It is snowy and very cold today!  The kind of weather that makes me less than energetic.

Hmmmmm……maybe I need a nap?

Happy Quilting

Tim

    Wow the quilting is stunning!
    Often when I am hand quilting, the voice of a very dear friend (and quilt show judge) is in my head. Isabelle would sometimes say of a quilt which just wasn’t up to scratch “…more quilting would suffice…”
    With this quilt, Isabelle would be most pleased!!

    Your quilting is just amazing! I’m absolutely in awe of how much you get accomplished in a short period of time!

      Thanks Cathi
      I guess it does look like I quilt pretty fast…quilting time is my time to think and plan….so the more of that I have to do the more quilting gets done…it usually atkes at least a few blocks to work out a new lecture for class

    I think you must stay awake 24/7, Tim… or else you have taught Teddy how to quilt so he can earn his keep, and when you’re sleeping, he takes over the quilting. You must be a fast stitcher to get so much done so quickly.

    Love the quilting on your latest quilt.
    The log cabin looks great on the bed!! I love it when old quilts get used.
