Lots is happening.
The floors are done in the house!
Which means I’m starting over in organizing. This time I actually pulled a bunch of yardage to sell at our multi-household garage sale (99th Street SW/98136). If you find yourself in West Seattle on Saturday come find me between 8-5pm. I’m pretty sure you’re running out of fabric;) and it’s likely you’re running low on other random things and need to come buy mine.
I did fit in some block construction on Monday thanks to Sandie’s invite for Krista and I to come over and spend the day in her new studio. I’m hoping the sewing room remake will get me back to this before Portland.
I’m trying really hard to not to be distracted by the shiny thing in the next room.
There are some plans this week for fun classes too!
Thursdays, June 5th and 12th from 6-9pm at the Quilting Loft in Ballard.
Fear the curve no more with this no pinning, no templates and no stress approach to the improvisational curves technique from the Embrace Your Curves chapter in Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts. I’ll cover multiple ways of making curves and inspire you right into embracing them yourself. Free-handing improvisational curves are manageable even for beginners.
::Not Your Grandmother’s Log Cabin/Improvisational Log Cabins::
Sunday, June 10th from 11am-5pm at Island Quilter on Vashon Island.
Step into the present with modern versions of a traditional log cabin block using improvisational techniques from the Log Cabin Makeover Chapter in Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts. Once we’ve covered the tips and tricks to making unique blocks we’ll focus on quilt design and structure. I’ll will share multiple projects to spark your creativity and set you on the path to your own log cabin design.
