Saturday Quilting

Alas, what does a quilter do on a Saturday? Well finish a customer quilt of course! But seriously, my friend Joyce needed a quilt done quickly, and I put pedal to the metal and got it done. Some stitch in the ditch, a couple of swirly borders, and some basic meandering in the middle. Wa la!

You see, with the “supervisor’ watching, there is no slacking in my studio. (See photo of supervisor below.)

And after a hard morning row on the lake with my crew team, slacking is exactly what I wanted to do!

Innovations Longarm Convention

New technique learned from Pam ClarkeI spent several days in Tacoma, Washington enjoying the weather (who knew?) while attending my first longarm convention. There were longarm manufacturers, vendors, a quilt show, and lots of classes for the taking. Out of the five classes I took, I really enjoyed the ones given by Pam Clarke and Sue Patten. Skill combined with humor and intelligence in these two women who really made the learning fun. I’ve already put some of my learning to use in my latest longarm quilt adventure (thank you to the lovely quilter from Eugene, Oregon who made the quilt)…see photo above.
