Sunny and calm in KC this morning--almost too pretty to stay indoors and quilt. Just almost...
Here is a photo of the string quilt I started one autumn. I pulled it out of the UFO pile and am now thinking about borders, etc. I am thinking of using some Gwen Marston-style string blocks or houses. First I'll have to dig through the fabric stash and hope for a discovery of some similar fabrics!
Yesterday was a no-blog day due to Girls Day Out with sister and sister-in-law, both non-quilters (sigh) but mega-shoppers. So we headed to Osage Beach outlet mall (one of the few good ones left) and did a bit of damage to the plastic. Had wonderful Mexican food and margaritas and hit an antique mall on the way home. All in all, a pretty grand day.
As I am learning to post photos to my blog, I plan to put up some oldies I've made in the past few years. I lean toward folkart and primitives, as you'll see, but am trying to expand my horizons. I am also trying really, really, really hard to learn free-motion quilting on my Bernina. I just recently took the plunge and purchased the BSR (Bernina Stitch Regulator). There is definitely a learning curve but each day I see a tiny bit of improvement. I am using it to quilt a "practice quilt" and will (hopefully VBG) post a picture of that work in progress tomorrow.
Their good work
