New Quilt, New Class

Baltimore has a cool, new sewing/fiber arts space called Baltimore Threadquarters. I stopped in a few weeks ago to check it out. I brought a few of my favorite vintage sheet quilts to show, including this one that was inspired by Jodie's quilt

Owner Marlo liked it so much, she asked me to teach a class to make it! If you're in the Baltimore area April 21 and 28 (two 3-hour classess) I hope you'll join me. Kits are available at the store and in my shop.

not quite perfect points, but close enough!

Here is a picture from the shop.

It's a great space! I hope you check it out if you're in town.

Scrappy Trip ~ Checked off!

I quilted up my scrappy trip a long! Took no time at all and I'm so happy to have peeled another layer off of the "tops that need quilting pile."

Last weekend I swung by our local post office, hoping it was open (it was not.) Adorable, isn't it? Built from an old railroad depot, back in 1904. Right next to the post office is this stone bridge which runs over the tracks. Hmm, looks like a great place to hang a quilt from.

So yesterday, as Katie was practicing her driving (she did great and I only had to slam on my invisible passenger seat brakes once!) I took her to the bridge to do a quilt photo shoot.

The quilt is still a little crazy for me. But, I did discover some fabric combinations that I really like. I hope I still have some of this fabric left!
