I’m feeling crazy busy these days.  A tad too busy, but when it’s all quilting all the time that’s keeping you that way, how can you complain??

A quick little class sample for an Improv. class that I’ll be teaching at Common Threads Studio in Pasadena.

Class Sample

And why am I currently so obsessed with the color combo of gray and raspberry?? I can’t get enough!

Ok back to the sewing machine I go!

    I’m currently working on a quilt that’s green, purple and grey so I totally understand the obsession! The class sample is gorgeous… I love the muted colours.

    Love your sample quilt! And I’m with you on the gray and raspberry. The quilt back I just made is two shades of gray with a raspberry strip!

    Anyway, love this one you made… especially with the straight line quilting!

    I LOVE the teenie tiny little quilting! I need to do something quicker, smaller, and less complicated to try some of that thin line stitching out on.

    Love the gray and raspberry, but I have to admit that I’m loving gray with just about any color right now. That is a wonderful little guilt!

    What a pretty quilt. Looks like a fun project. Is that thicker than normal thread you used for the quilting?

      Hi Carol! It’s the usual 100% cotton quilting thread that I always use. Coats & Clark. My machine likes it fine so I use it regularly.
