Today was sew day for my church group and this afternoon I have been piecing so I am back to quilting projects. Although… while reading quilting/sewing blogs, I came across an adorable sundress I would like to make.
For quilting projects I pulled fabrics and made a couple of sample blocks for a JoAnn Fabrics quilt class. Here are two. I might need to change the background fabric.
While I was working on smocking, I did take the time to check on my favorite blogs. Recently several have inspired me to think again about making a wholecloth trapunto quilt. I am not interested in doing the art threadwork that Leah Day does ( I’m more traditional ), but I am amazed with her work on the wholecloth quilt “Dutchess Reigns”. You just have to see it.
I also have watched several videos on YouTube with Cindy Needham who also does wholecloth quilts. Her quilts are amazing!
If there is a problem with the links, just go to YouTube and search for Cindy Needham.
Here is a link to Cindy’s webpage. http://www.cindyneedham.com/
Cindy and Leah also teach classes online with Craftsy.com. http://www.craftsy.com/classes/quilting
I am looking forward to teaching free-motion quilting again this fall for Midlands Tech and plan to incorporate some new techniques and designs that I have learned. It will also give me more practice. Maybe one day I will make my own bedsize wholecloth quilt.
