Let's get 2012 started! What a year this is going to be. I have set my goals in the side bar and am ready to dive into a fresh new year.
January is jam packed with crazy quilting. I have two entries I want to get ready for the Canadian Juried show and one entry still has the fabric neatly folded in a bag with the design on top. Yikes, magic better happen soon!
I finished two tutorials this week. They will be up tomorrow and next week. I might add they are both on embellishing. How fun is that? Riley Blake loves embellishments so much that I am posting once a month on how you can use them in quilts, sewing projects and crafts!
More tomorrow on that delicious bit of news.
I am getting close to the quilting stage of my art quilt currently in the studio. I always jot down steps when I am unsure how to proceed to ensure that things go smoothly. They never do. I had a heck of a time getting this giant piece appliqued onto the background. I finally had to baste a large section of it. Don't think I didn't consider fusing the whole thing down!
Now I have to figure out how to quilt this one without detracting from all the colours. There have been a few quilts that by the time I got finished quilting them, I thought they looked better unquilted. I really don't want to say that about this one. Way too much time sunk into it already. And I have a deadline!
