Studio Update

I hope everyone has had a fantastic start to 2010.

I've been super busy with family and been extra busy in the studio. At the beginning of the month I actually had 8 customer quilts for LongArming. I've managed to complete 3 and I'm going to finish another one by Friday.

Here are photo's of the quilts I've completed this month so far.


I've also been super busy late in the evening stalking all my new swap buddies so I can make them pieces they will really enjoy. I joined 3 virtual quilting bees, you can see the buttons with links on the left sidebar. I'll be showing you the blocks I've completed for bees later in the month all in one post.

I've also joined a Hoop Up embroidery swap and Doll Quilt Swap 8.

I've been working on my initial piece which I designed myself for the Hoop Up swap, I'm hoping to show you this later in the week but here is a photo of an embroidery I did last week, just for more practice before I get started on other peoples pieces.

I don't know why but I'm really into birds lately!

I've drawn up 3 designs for my Hoop Up buddies but I can't show you those until Aprilish when I've sent them off to my team members. I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise for them. Take a look at the flckr pool to see what we have all been up to.

I've started on a mini quilt for my new DQS partner. After stalking my partner I've decided that the fabric I won in the Hawthorne Threads giveaway, Girly Girl, will be perfect for her. Hope she'll love it. There are 160 quilter's participating and were over on flckr here.


I've also finished my second ripple blanket and we are using it already.

So, I'm super busy but I'm loving it, and feeling so creative right now.
