Work in Progress Wednesday: Injuries

carla Quilting 1 Comment

I had a slow week after hurting myself taking quilt photos this past weekend. I was able to get my HST’s and flying geese done for the Star Surround QAL, and I finished the Nurture Circle quilt before I got hurt. In addition, I was able to do step one of the flying geese for the flying geese quilt, but …

I think it might be time for a new list! I was able to get all three quilt tops off to the long armer, including Cascade! I was thinking of writing a tutorial or pattern for Cascade, but I think it might be too simple. What do you think? I also finished my July bee block for do. Good Stitches. …

Missing: sewing mojo

carla Questions, Quilting Leave a Comment

I’m having massive designer’s block right now and it is incredibly frustrating. I have a few projects in progress, but nothing I’m really loving, and nothing that feels really creative. I guess 5 quilts and a pillow in two months really took it out of me. I’ve had a few ideas – a 60 degree diamond and strip set quilt …

If you’ve been paying attention, you probably noticed that I added the do. Good Stitches badge to my sidebar a couple of weeks ago. I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been chosen to join the NURTURE Circle as the quilter for June. NURTURE Circle is great. We quilt for My Very Own Blanket, a charity that gives quilts to kids …
