Old Quilts and My Friend Alice

My friend Alice has acquired some old quilts. She's pretty sure her great-grandmother made them.  Alice is about to divide them up, some for her family, some for her brothers' families.  She invited me to view and take photos to have a record of them. Pretty and pretty awesome. There's a revolving slide show of the quilts and some photos of Alice and her cute grandbabies going on on the right of this post :D

Michelle Linder

The April meeting of my local quilt guild, BBQ City Quilters, featured artist and author, Michelle Linder. Michelle has published a book called Square Magic. This is an awesome book! This will change my quilting, I just know it. No more messed up points!

Beyond her incredible book about this liberating technique, Michelle Linder is a wonderful, warm and delightful person! Words can't convey the feeling one gets just chatting with her. It was a delight to get to have this short meeting with her. If you get a chance to spend any time with Michelle don't miss it!

Sewing Room Equipment

         Here's the new equipment for my sewing studio!  It's a steel rack of large plastic bins!  My dear husband found it at Northern Tool.  It is fabulous. :)   I just love how it holds all my thread and bits and pieces of a variety of projects.  It feeds my desire to have several projects going at once as I can pull out bins and work, then replace them and pull out something else to work on.  At this rate I could have 64 projects going - that's the number of bins, and not finish anything!
