conversation recently with someone whose reply to my comment was"Your window of opportunity has passed." I turned thinking I could get a glimpse, but to no avail. So I got to thinking...what would my just missed window of opportunity look like? This is the result. I thought the attic window would be perfect to frame my window. After all, don't most unused things get stored in the attic? This sounds like an interesting challenge. What would your window look like?

There is a miniture quilt artist...Virginia Cole, whose work I really like. I tried to by all her books/patterns at Houston last year. She recently started a "One Another " series. What a great idea. I happened to have these 3 blocks in my to do basket. My intent was/is? to make enough of these 3 inch blocks for a king sized quilt. OK so it is a long term project. Have a look at her quilt. Her blocks are 1 inch and she uses paper for her words. I love it. www.gallopingponey.com

www.twowackywomen.com . I have decided to make smaller samples and offer them for sale. You know I love leaves and I will probably do some pears as well. This sample allowed me to use my new purchase of Misty Fuse, which I am really sold on, and Jacquard organza for the printer. I highly recommend both of these products.

improv curves is really fun and not difficult. This is a 15 inch block and I think I will do 9 blocks. We shall see. So... what do you think?

at a show. Almost everything is raw edged or fused, since it will just hang and it is heavily quilted. HAPPY HALLOWEEN !!!!

I have returned to work full time. Needless to say, work is interfering with my life. I did not blog all of Sept. I have been gone a lot, but my time is well, not really my time. I intend to change that. So I thought I would share with you an amazing video a saw today. Until next time.

I've resumed quilting an old project and it is not only going very well, but it really feels good to complete something. Of course I want to start several new things including a stripes challenge , finish up a workshop block started over the weekend, and start planning my March 2011 quilting retreat. However, I think being one with the Juki has won out .You should spend some time machine quilting today. It's a good thing.

glue user, even with release paper products such as Wonder Under. So I wondered what would happen if I painted my fabric window with the liquid glue instead of using the paper . Well it is interesting. It was just OK to apply, and OK to quilt. It is not as firm as the paper fusible which is good. I would suggest watering it down a bit instead of full strength Bottom line... It is OK to try it.

OH BOY! My blood is boiling now!! This will probably be the last big class project before our summer hiatus. This is a classic lantern block in updated color palette. I could be done fairly soon if I would stop admiring each block for at least a few minutes. I'm sure you will see more of this babe. I love it!

recipes. This is the everyday 12 bean soup whose ingredients we usually have on hand, and can "whip up" in a moments notice. It took less than 5 hours to cut and sew and about 2 to quilt. It measures about 62 x78. We are working on the company version of the recipe now.

I hate to be redundant...but, I simply love machine quilting. I calms me down. AND IT GETS THAT QUILT FINISHED! This is the second in a school project I am calling Twelve by Twelve. There are 12 fabrics that form 12 blocks. I am hoping 12 of my 27 or so students participate so I can feature them on flicker. We will see.
