on my table

Here's what's been on my table....

working on my next class

Working away on my next class, the one with the Scandinavian inspiration.  Loving those Little Kukla birds and how perfectly they pair with that tiny Shelburne Falls print.  Oh, how are you Shelburne Falls challenge projects coming?

String Fever getting started

Getting to know my new machine over strings!  Scrap Attack {String Fever} button and details to be announced next week.  I'll be sharing a tutorial for this angular zig-zag/herringbone-style string quilt I'm making next week too.  You'll need legal paper if you want to make it!

slicing a Layer Cake

Slicing a layer cake for a friend's 30th birthday composed of 30 ten-inch squares.  Turns out I have more than 30 black and brown fabrics - her favorite colors!  Now what will she make?

Scandinavian flowers

Making these Scandinavian flowers and wishing, hoping, wondering why Spring is so shy this year?  Our annual Easter egg hunt is this Saturday.  Sunshine please?

What's on your table?

  2. Can't wait to hear about your new class and your new machine! The circles/leaves on the low-volume print is just lovely!

  3. You're definitely teasing and tempting us with the little glimpses of the new class - can't wait!
    I appliqué some flowers almost exactly the same as the ones in your last photo a few weeks ago with mixed results, so now I'm even more intrigued to find out more.

  4. I can't wait for your new class, I might not be finished with the last one yet, but I've loved it all so much! And you can't go wrong with all things Scandinavian inspired can you!

  5. I have a bargello in progress on my table, with dark blues, teals, aquas, and white. It's supposed to look like a churning ocean, or a rippling brook...we'll see! Here's my progress so far:

  6. Pretty projects!! Black and brown never looked so pretty; whatever your friend makes will have to be beautiful.

    1. That's what I thought. I'm not such a fan of black and brown as "go to" colors, but she has a point. When you put them all together, it's quite nice.

  12. Love the birthday present! I may have to surprise my best (sewing) friend who is turning 50 this year with 50 squares. She'd love it!

  14. Can't even begin to tell you what's on my table ~ it's a mess from the last project.
    Love the beginnings of the projects you're doing for the Scandinavian class ~ what will it all be?
    Wishing nice weather for you ~ it's going to be 64 here today (Portland, OR) and even warmer tomorrow.

    1. My table is a mess too! I just capture the lovely moments =). My next class is built around a detailed class quilt. So, it's kind of like Handstitched, but it's a modern sampler of sorts with blocks in many sizes.

  15. The angular zig-zag/herringbone-style string quilt pattern looks wonderful. I kept my strings in a zip loc bag and wait for your project tutorial before sorting them by colour. I already have some ideas what I could use this block for (I'm working on two quilts by now and don't want to start a new one but I can imagine using this block for other fun items).
    The flowers look wonderful, too.
