I had a great time with the Capital City Quilt Guild in Lansing Michigan yesterday. Thanks to all who attended and put up with me.
We are now hard at work designing quilt patterns for our upcoming fabric line. We just got a sneak peak at it today. Whee! That means in approximately 6 weeks I will have lots and lots of pictures to show you as I cut, press, sew, and unsew our new creations.
I'm attempting a new scrap quilt - but I'm not sure how it's going. I'm winging it. I have nothing drawn on graph paper and it's a new, exciting, scary place to be. At first I thought I might try some of these....
I posted my dismay on Instagram and instantly got lots of good advice. First, glue basting seems to be the best way for these tiny, irregular shapes and it always helps to watch videos of people who know what they are doing. Also, you are not supposed to baste the bottom edges. Whoops.
I decided against the clamshells for now and went down this path.....
More will be revealed. As soon as I know what I'm doing. Hah.
I have heard from a little birdy (possibly an Austin Bluebirdy) that the Austin Bluebird Sampler kits will be shipping soon. In the meantime, we do have the complete pattern in our Etsy store.
Have a great weekend everyone.
