Last Night I was privileged to be a presenter at the CAMEO quilt guild in Clawson MI….I did my lecture/trunk show “Timespan Quilts..UFO to Heirloom” Thanks to everyone at CAMEO!!! What A fun evening of quilt sharing! I had the best time!
I have been working on the Basket of Lilies quilt again here are some pictures (click to enlarge)
Teddy was very excited to get his picture taken today….
I am likely going to be unable to resist going back to this quilt
I have the batting and the backing fabric and I ordered some thread to use…and it arrived!
I am excited to try it out….so I might have yet another quilt in progress soon.
A few days ago I posted this
I mentioned that I plan to put these trimmings out for the birds to use as nesting material. I have been advised by my friend Ann (who in addition to being a bird person is also a quilter and gardener) that birds can be harmed by long pieces. She says “Sherri Smith, bird rehabilitator in Ann Arbor, reports that they routinely get injured birds (hung by a leg, or a wing or claw) from string, etc that kind-hearted people put out. Make the scraps 3″, or less, long.” So before you but out your scraps please remember to cut them down to size!
If you live in Michigan you might be interested in my next presentation. I will be doing my trunk show for the Mid Michigan Quilters Guild in Mt. Pleasant MI on April 22.
The Program :Time Span Quilts – UFO to Heirloom will be presented by Tim Latimer. He is a Certified Florist and a Floral Design instructor at MSU. He has a degree in horticulture and is an avid gardener. He also collects antique and vintage quilt tops and finishes them. His goal is to preserve the fine art of hand quilting. He has over 200 quilt tops and has decided to share them.
Here is a link to the Quilt Guild for more information Mid Michigan Quilters Guild Programs
Now I have to decide how long I can resist trying out that new thread!
