Here's what my cutting table looked like yesterday morning. The fabric has been FLYING around here! Yesterday I finished TWO quilt tops!!!! Time to clean a bit:
Ahhh, much better!
I basted the larger quilt - it's ready to for the next step of quilting. I'll baste the smaller one (a wallhanging) today. I'm also busy as a bee working on examples for demonstrating on Quilting Arts TV next week - never knew there was so much to do to prepare for a 5-8 minute segment! I have a new appreciation for all those folks we watch on television.
Here's my coffee buddy this morning. He's been a bad boy this week... dumped a potted plant out on the patio. Ate part of the plant. Dirt everywhere. Never did find the pot... Oh well...
We have out of town guests coming this weekend, so I need to get to the grocery store, put sheets on a bed, freshen bathrooms, and then I can get back to the fun stuff of quilting!!!
Thanks to the Birmingham Quilters Guild for a great time on Monday. Peggy and I (both members of the guild) got to speak at the first meeting of the year. We had a blast sharing our journey through publishing - some of the behind the scenes stories of book publishing and Quilt Market. On the way out of town I stopped at Chico's and bought something to wear for the TV filming next week. (At least that was my excuse for buying a new outfit!) :) Have a great day!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
