Hi there my quilt friends I hope the people who live in the North East are warm, safe and in the houses where all is good. If you have followed the news the past few days you know that we here in Massachussetts experienced a very big storm and where I live on the Cape which is Southeastern Mass we had a ton of snow. My last measurement was 10.5"... I so need spring, like yesterday. So while it was snowing I decided to finish up my "Letters in the Mail" Quilt that I made with Me & My Sister (Hubba Bubba) fabric and Moda Marbles. Love Moda fabric... I am using this to teach as a beginners class... I quilted with Aurifil 50 wt white. So here it is. If you are interested in learning to make this quilt let me know.
Good Morning my friends, what is on your cutting table today. This past weekend I was working on a quilt with fat eighth bundle by Me & My Sister's Hubba Bubba Fabric . I was thinking of making this quilt and writing the pattern to submit and then a little voice in my head said, "hey you why don't you make this for you" and so I thought why not I wrote the pattern if I want I can self publish the pattern... So that is what I did...
So yesterday I finished the quilt top with borders and last evening I laid out and marked my design on it. Loaded it to the machine and today I will work on finishing the quilting so that I can get this project checked off my list... When all is said and done I will be posting finished photos and information how you can get the pattern. I hope you like it.
Good afternoon my blogger peeps I want to tell and share with all of you that I am in the process of constructing a website that will be connected with this blog. The website is being constructed to share photos and to let you all know what I have to offer you and your group or guild. Sallys Quilting Corner is the new site. It is a bit more modern and a nice refreshed look is exactly what I wanted to do to start off the new year with... As on this blog the website has photos and will have updates about some of what is happening. Also on the site is a way you can contact me via email with question and inquiries.
Never fear my peeps I am here to make you feel comfortable and relaxed and to share what I do in the quilting world. Here is something for those who need to think about the warm weather, since we have had so much snow and rain happening here on the east coast...
Good Morning my quilting friends. How are you all doing today. If your in the Northeast you are probably dealing with the large scale blizzard we are having. If you are Please all of you be safe, stay off the roads, trust me they are not safe to drive on. I know from experience I was ordered off the road very early this morning and finally got a ride into work from the local police department. Thank you Yarmouth Police for helping me out. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
So what's on tap for today. Since I am at work warm and snuggled in the house with my patient I brought hand work to play with. Baby It's cold outside. So what could be better than to be in a warm house have warm coffee and a sewing project to keep you busy.
And what's better is that when I get home I can do even more sewing and quilting in my new space.
Oh and I just had to share that yesterday I received in the mail a wonderful book from Linda Poole her newest book :
and what's even better is she is having a give away... OMG!!! I couldn't wait to enter this... So if you want to enter a give-away got to Linda Poole and see about getting the book and entering her give-away. I'm telling you, won't regret learning this new technique. I just love everything I have seen... Take a hop on over to her Facebook page at Linda Poole - The Magic of Applique'...
