I’m back on track….sort of. It feels a little different around here with my husband in Singapore and my girls back to school but I am trying to get the new normal to feel normal. It won’t be long before normal is not normal again… You know how time magically disappears…I will also be in Singapore soon.
This will be the view from the 29th floor of our apartment in The Rochester apartments. It’s actually already the view for John!
I have powered up the Bernina and am trying to be productive in between work and going out of town on weekends. Through the Azalea City Quilt Guild I am taking a class on machine quilting and have learned quite a bit so far. Like how to convert half square and quarter square triangles, a little math, a little sewing, cool tools and techniques in fabric selection. It’s fun!
We have made a block or two each month which gives you plenty of time to work on other projects.
This is going to end up being a sampler quilt. So I picked from my stash some fabric I had purchased on sale somewhere…fat quarters of Sandi Henderson’s Ginger Blossoms.
I added some dark brown and a cream solid because I needed some fabrics to give it contrast.
All the values were in the medium range.
We are about half way through the class. I hope I can finish before I leave. Interesting, there are no two fabrics that are the same in the class and all the ladies share fabric if one of theirs will be perfect in someone else’s block. Quilter ladies are the best!
