Very few posts lately, I know. But just because there is nothing doesn't mean there isn't something!
I've had my nose to the studio grindstone lately, but I can't show you my two Supreme sewing jobs just yet. I did reveal a peek of one HERE, and here is the other peek. Aren't these four patches pretty? I just love Central Park by Kate Spain! Oh - and my "Supreme Boss", Stephanie, has just had several of her fantastic bag patterns published HERE! Hip, hip, Hooray!
You're probably also wondering if I've been practicing on Vinnie! Yes, I have! I made this little blankie for Sophie recently. It's just a simple quilt sandwich that I made to practice turning a quilt. All I did was stitch a stencil pattern in the middle, then a panto around the edges. Instead of adding a real binding, I brought the backing around to the front, folded it over and stitched it down. I discovered that it's really easy to turn your quilt! There are a lot of mistakes in it, but it's just practice and helped me immensely! I also ordered a set of Leader Grips for quicker loading of my quilts - I watched Manquilter demo them on his website and was sold!
Yesterday I did some more cutting on my Lil's Simpler Tymes quilt. Lots more to cut before I can get to sewing, though.
When Mr. Squash and I were on our recent winter fishing adventure, we stopped at a little quilt shop. He saw this Bali pop and wanted to know if I could make something from it - I think you all know the answer to that question! The King Tut threads above are a recent purchase for Vinnie - they will be used on several of my recent finishes!
Snow began falling heavily late yesterday and we're expecting several inches - just before we're scheduled to head over the Cascades to a memorial service near Bellingham! The passes have been unrestricted all winter - wouldn't you know it would snow now! Cross your fingers the roads are passable, otherwise I'll be doing a lot more sewing!
