June 19, 2014

Last weekend was the Annapolis Quilt Guild annual show. Baltimore Applique Society was the special exhibitors and I had two quilts in the exhibit.

I also did a demonstration on making circles with Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles.  I'm always learning little tips here and there, more tools for my toolbox. Here's a great tip on making circles I read on the blog A Few of My Favorite Things today.

Tuesday  I made some fun blocks of the month in "desert colors", not a palette I often use.

Wednesday, I took a fun class with Lauren Kingsland called Quilting to your Center. We made meditative designs based on Indian kolam.

I finished my monstrous project, but cannot publish images of it yet. Here's a teaser of the back.

Finished hand quilting my Captain Aust block. The dark gray rayon thread looks very shiny in this photo. Still needs binding, sleeve and label.

I turned a study for a quilt into a SAQA auction donation.

And I started a couple of new projects, but I'll have to post those later!

June 1, 2014

I've been working on a big, heavy quilt all weekend. Constructing and quilting such a monster is exhausting. I feel like I've been wrestling a bear.

I successfully installed some grommets.

I finished the applique and embroidery on the Captain Aust block today. Now on to hand quilting. This will be auctioned through Baltimore Applique Society.
