This and that

Bobbins

I adore pictures of bobbins of pretty thread - maybe I should share more of them. My secret quilt for a magazine used 12 of these bobbins for the quilting. And it is in the hands of Mr. Purolator for a 7 - 10 day trip - which will get it there just in time. And this means no more secrets for a while. I am totally evaluating this secret project for publication thing, as I personally enjoy sharing things as I work on them so much better.

Some improv x's tonight.

Tonight I am going to work on these improv Xs. I get to make a mini quilt to be included in the Canadian Quilter's Association cross Canada travelling quilt show called "It's time for Colour!" I am so flattered to have been asked to participate. I want to make sure that my quilt has a real modern flair, so I am thinking something similar to my Landmarks mini. On the other hand, I also still debate doing one like the very first Cycles quilt - maybe with some improv "made" fabric in all the colours. Either way, I need to get it in the mail on Monday morning.



If you have not yet entered the draw for this beautiful bundle sponsored by Sew Me A Song, go here to do that. I will close the draw tonight after supper - about 7 pm MST.

Best,


Leanne

  2. Thank you! I love that bundle. I'm SO into text prints and low volumes... it hasn't really faded just yet :) Thanks for the reminder to enter the giveaway. AND thank you for introducing me to a new Maine local (online) fabric shop! Camden, ME is only 45 min from me! That's about as local as it gets here in rural Maine.

  3. Secret sewing is stressful! (I've kept my secret for eleven months!) those pretty improv crosses will surely grow into something wonderful! Happy sewing!

  4. Perhaps occasional secret sewing so that you can share the other things you are up to would be a nice balance. You'll figure it out. Pretty blue thread. Have fun with your quilt over he weekend.
