TWIST ~ This Week In Studio Time

I’ve been working on a comfort quilt for a friend who is going through a tough time right now.  Here’s what I have laid out right now.

I used my Accuquilt GO Tumbler Die for the first time on some of my stash.  Love it!  So fast and easy!

I’m needing a good quote, saying, or poem for the label. I’m thinking of something about life giving you scraps or a quilt giving comfort.  If any of you have any I’d appreciate you leaving a comment here.  Thanks so much!

Until next time,

Take Care,

TWIST ~ This Week In Studio Time

I hope all mothers out there enjoyed the weekend as I did.  I know some don’t care for the “Hallmark” Holidays, but I think they do make you pause and remember, which is their purpose.

My studio time last week was spent making these cute party favors on my embroidery machine.

I also began the HoopSisters Mystery Quilt.  I am such a sucker for mystery quilts!  Don’t know what it is, but it’s so hard to resist.  I don’t know how many mystery quilt classes I’ve taken from Charlotte Angotti and I’ve loved every one of them!  Anyway, I can only show you the fabric for this one as I’m sworn to double secret probation not to disclose until June 15 since it’s a mystery, so here’s my fabric selection.

Snorkeling and Quilting

What do snorkeling and quilting have to do with each other, you ask?

Take a look at these photos:

I see stippling.  You?  Art mimics nature.

I was fortunate enough to be snorkeling on the North Shore of Grand Cayman the week before last and took these shots with my underwater camera.  Couldn’t help seeing the quilting patterns underwater.

I’ll leave you with another couple shots just for fun:

It’s Friday! Time to TWIST!

TWIST – This Week In Studio Time

It was a slow week in my studio.  I was unpacking from one vacation and getting packed for an upcoming weekend trip.  I did have a good time playing with my fabric stash and auditioning fabrics for upcoming projects, though.

I also sewed two of my newest patches on my Airstream sweatshirt.  I collect jacket patches instead of bumper stickers when we visit places while Airstreaming.  Getting ready for a new season of adventures and friendships!
