a flower festival ~

good morning friday ~

it was the dead of winter, errr, uhum  make that a beautiful “fusing” day … when a hot iron meets hand dyed cloth, velvet, and fusible web!  and… an accuquilt die!  this die is new, and i love how it turned out. i do really like love the color action all the way around:
once i ‘get in the mode’ i usually fuse a bunch of fabric at once.  for the next idea, i turned to one of my favorite quilt designer authors, and her book, “flower festival.” 

a beautiful palette of color, and a terrific block make for a lovely surface begging for thread play.  these will likely turn into table runners, but maybe a nine-patch dual duty runner or wall hanging?  we shall see!

no one told me retirement days would equal “double time” and i cannot believe how fast the days go by now!  

time to organize, re-fold and re-group my little {big} studio! next up:  minkee blankets!  it’s a good time to make a stash for gifts, and to give to young women’s shelters, or wherever there is a need.  

happy blessed sewing, stitching, quilting, organizing days!

  1. Looking forward to some tips on sewing with minkee. I made one baby quilt a couple of years ago and vowed I would never sew with it again! Actually, the sewing wasn't too bad — cutting out was a disaster! I had "fluff" all over the house not to mention all over me!
