WIP Wednesday – Hexies everywhere

carla Quilting 4 Comments

Since my surgery I’ve continued to crank out hexies. I now have 200 basted 1″ hexagons ready to be sewn into flowers. At the DCMQG meeting on Saturday my friend Jessie talked to me a little about my 36 degree diamonds. The news wasn’t great. The “flags” that are made when you EPP are going to make appliqué’-ing them down …

I’ve had a string of busy weeks, and I’ve been fitting in sewing and fun where I can. On Saturday the 8th I went to see my friend Katie give a trunk show and lecture at the Anacostia Arts Center where our quilts are displayed. My friend Nicole had a pop-up shop in the gallery that was a mini version …

It’s been several weeks since I posed a WIP Wednesday, so let me get caught up. I don’t have a lot of pictures, but I did get a few things done. First and foremost I quilted and bound two of my Nani Iro quilts, the wedding quilt and the one for me. The wedding quilt has been gifted to its …

After my frustrations using the lovely but slightly irritating Nani Iro last week, I decided I needed to chuck my list out the window and play with a new stack of fabric – Violet Craft’s Waterfront Park. When the line came out I only bought part of it – charcoal gray, navy, peach, purple, white, and teal. I also didn’t …

MAGFest was this past weekend so I haven’t gotten a lot of sewing done since New Year’s Eve when I spent most of the day quilting my Briar Rose Giant Star quilt. Related to MAGFest, I’m thrilled to announce that my Link Pixel Quilt sold for $675 at the MAGFest / Child’s Play charity auction! My friend Ian was the winning bidder, …

WIP Wednesday: It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.

carla Charity, Quilting 2 Comments

Over the last two weeks I’ve been very productive. I’ve finished my first major free motion quilting (FMQ). I showcased my very first one two weeks ago. Here’s the second – same loopy floral-ish pattern, but on a smaller scale this time (3″ squares instead of 5″ squares). I worked on connecting my flowers better and moving along instead of …
