What I most enjoy doing with my time!

Some of my favorites this year

Since I really haven’t done much sewing this year, I’ve been living vicariously through my designs. Looking back over the years, I can see growth in my drawing skills. More perfection, and more ambitious designs.

The First Hexie Flower

It’s been well over a month, and that’s how long it’s taken me to piece the 37 hexies that make up one of the five large flowers in my Not My Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.

Mi niece, Ana Lía, sent me the link to this wonderful video. This form of quilting is different, and so, so beautiful, it needs to be shared. Enjoy!

A little EPP bragging

And no, it isn’t about me and my 1,100 EPP hexagons. This time it is about that amazingly talented niece of mine!

A growing Rhapsody quilt. And a “little” hand sewing.

My niece Ana Lía is on a semester break, so last weekend she came down for a visit and to finish the applique on her Rhapsody quilt.

A little embellishing fun

Well, a full three weeks have gone by before I actually got around to finishing this little project. Family and work do come first, and it’s been busy on those fronts. But I did find a little time this weekend to add some beads and buttons to this little project.

Even more complex hexies

After my last post I recalled I have worked with a slightly different concept for pieced hexies before. Actually, they are even more complex than those Mickey Depre teaches in her Pieced Hexies class on Craftsy.

Pieced Hexies

Like many of you, I’m addicted to English Paper Piecing. And, yes, hexagons still are my favorite shape to work with, although every now and then I do enjoy breaking away from them a little, and incorporating other shapes.

Time for beads and buttons

July turned out to be an exceptionally busy month. Lots and lots of work. And because we were left without power for a whole week, which involved juggling my whole schedule around, I ended up having to work long hours the last couple of weeks.

Earlier this week EQ designers were notified our collections at My EQ Boutique will soon be moved to the Electric Quilt website. I thought I’d pass on this information, in case you are an EQ user and might be interested. So take note… this is the notice:

Right foot forward

Quilters/sewers are know to be… collectors. Of all things sewing-related. I admit to this.

Oh me, oh my!

Just when I thought I’d never want anything more than Craftsy and TQS (my favorites) with regards to online learning, I just stumbled on a new website with a ton of fun content to offer.

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
