I’m having fun with this baby stuff! Baby quilts are so quick to make. I have this cartoon in my head that my son and DIL will arrive for Thanksgiving in their Subaru Outback and leave pulling a 15′ trailer full of baby things that Gramma made, LOL! I think I need to pump the brakes, but hey, I said the same thing last week.
This week’s output:
Isn’t that the cutest stinkin’ panel? It’s all pre-printed so no piecing there. And it’s got a little lion, tee hee.
I love those cute little happy elephants!
Total coincidence that there is a Lyon in there….
Who could resist that happy monkey and giraffe?
Now, I hear that I’ll need to make burping cloths, lots of them, like 24 – 40?! I’m thinking flannel and double gauze, is that practical?
I had a blast Wednesday chatting with Linda J. Hahn on her Sew What! Zoomcast. It will be available Friday on You Tube. Check back if you open this up early, I will edit and throw the link in once I get it.
If you are a member of the Northern Ca Council of Quilt Guilds, I’ll be presenting about book publishing during a Teacher’s Roundtable on Fri Oct 23 from 2 – 3:30PM. Other topics to be covered are magazine publishing, e-commerce and social media marketing. I’m on the Board of NCQC now and if you’re not a member, consider joining. We do a lot to help guilds, shops, teachers and individual quilters. The Roundtable is but one example.
I had another 2 days of online teaching over the last weekend. The ladies of the Ocean Wave Quilters in beautiful Ft. Bragg, were eager and enthusiastic students. I did not know online teaching could be this much fun! I was looking back over my 10-year calendar and saw what I was doing 4 years ago. I was traveling 3 – 4 times a month, having a blast. But I don’t know if I want to return to that kind of schedule again; I go back and forth on that one.
I had the most lovely Monday, running errands and then meeting up with my small quilt group, Sisters in Stitches. It is fabulous to be able to hang out with quilting buddies now that I’m not traveling as much! A few vignettes from my day:
A friend’s pomegranates. Mine are not quite ripe yet.
Are they not the prettiest fruit?
Fragrant gardenia bouquet in my friend’s home.
Gorgeous dinner plate dahlia bouquet at our small quilt group’s socially distanced gathering. Um, note the 2 Dove chocolates to the left…
Given to me by my friend Donna a few days ago. It was all buds then and now it is bursting with color!
Don’t forget, I’ll be teaching Fearless Free Motion Cutwork at 2 locations soon – one local (Howell’s Sew n Vac on Nov 14) and one live online at liveonlinequiltclass.com on Nov 6. You know it is going to be a wild time with the election coming, so why not ignore politics and have fun quilting in this laid-back and fun class?
