In these times when we are being asked to stay at home, I am blessed to have a business that allows me to work from home and a large supply of fabric. It has been awhile since I have taken the time to update my blog, so here is a peak at what I have been up to.
Of course, I have been busy making face masks to benefit our non-profit sewing ministry in Haiti, and I continue to do that. But I have been so busy sewing that I have been remiss in keeping the website up to date, so I have just added a bunch of pictures to the gallery.
My recent work has included memory quilts, custom quilts, and baby quilts for clients,memory bears, samples for quilt shops, gifts for friends and family members, challenge quilts, and a few for myself just for fun. I have been asked to do just the piecing of tops, just the quilting, just the binding, or the whole quilt start to finish. And this summer I have started making tuffets.
One of my favorite projects was doing a One Block Wonder with the Lightkeeper’s Quilt panel by June Herold for Studio E. The top and bottom diamonds on the panel made great patterns when they were cut into triangles that were made into hexagons. I have three friends who are waiting for me to teach them this technique when we can get together again.
Another great project was this tuffet that I made for Quilt-ish of Cape Cod. June had always envisioned a tuffet that looked like a sea urchin, and she chose the fabrics and layout, featuring this great sea urchin Kaffe Fassett print.
A few years ago I made several of the Jen Kingwell Delilah blocks as samples for a Red Thread Studio block of the month. I was recently asked to add sashing and make a sampling of them into a display quilt. Here it is, along with several additional recent projects.
