It's finally time to start a little stitching!! Yippee! I'd say it's been about 5 weeks since I've had time to pick up a needle and thread, so I'm feeling good now that I have a few minutes to stitch a little! Let's see...it is 8pm... That means I have about 30 minutes until my eyes wear out and start watering! Haha!
These are a few leftover hexies from my Life In The Midwest Quilt. (You can see it by clicking on the name). I will be teaching my starch basting technique For English Paper Piecing at the Garland, Texas Guild in February, so I thought I'd work up a new class sample to teach. I just love the colors in the granny flowers...they are truely my favorites. The background plaid has been stained with instant coffee and baked to give it that really old look. My favorite quilts are done with these colors and textures. Plaids, florals, small prints...a mixture of Traditional, Primitive and Civil War fabrics...and next I'll add in my other favorite texture to add to a quilt...Wool. Yum Yummy!
What are your favorite colors and textures to make quilts with?
Happy New Year! And of course,
PS...I'm working on those tabs at the top of the page. Forgive me for a while longer as I can not figure out what is wrong with the links to make them work properly! I'm working on it! If you have any questions on Starch Basting or making The Gardens Of A King, don't hesitate to contact me. ;-)
