News Thread 8.2

Wow, where has the year gone?  It’s August already. 

This whole new work schedule is great for me to sew in the mornings and get my creative energy out.  Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time to write here.  Not too much different going on in the sewing room.  I did take some time yesterday to clean it up and get more organized. 

Here is the latest fabric that has inspired me.  I picked it during my trip to NYC. 

My design wall has a completed top on it.  Now I just need to find a great backing fabric.  The top is Moda Eva and there are still some stores that sell it.  Not sure what color I want to focus on out of green, purple, or pink.  I’m leaning towards pink and green thread during the quilting.

Call Me Productive

Since Wednesday I have been working to diligently get items marked off my check list.  Well readers, I was successful. 

Five new sets of potholders that will be added throughout the week to Etsy.  Here is just an idea of what they look like. 

Finished the Groovy Flower quilt top and got it pressed.  Found backing fabric to coordinate.

Completed the custom quilt top I have been working on as well.  Just waiting on approval in order to start quilting.

However, to quilt I need to clean out my front room.  That includes finally unpacking from vaca, sweeping, and cleaning the carpets.  I like to pin on carpet so this is a must.  I found another top that I forgetten about and the backing.  Could there be another quilt to be completed in my making???  You bet!
