Here's Wanda's fabric from Round Robin

Well, this was a challenge. I decided to over dye in fushia and then added the paint stick swirls to it. I think it's starting to grow on me. Not sure if Wanda is getting this back ;0) Hugs.

Well I've been really busy lately. Got the garge cleaned out so I could in good conscience play with my new mid arm quilting machine. I also got into a round robin for a surface design group that has been interesting and I will post those pictures too.

This was my yard of fabric and the design I painted on. Kinda thought I saw turtles swiming in the grass.
This was the next person's I got. I added the paint stick flowers
This was Suzan's. She had used orange on white dye and then the next person did it up in salmon color dye and I added the geometric paint stick design.

This is the ne Pfaff mid arm Grand Quilter. I could wish for a londer neck space yet when I think of the killed price I got plus 1500 off for their mix up I really can't complain for what I want to do with it. Still have some thread issues to deal with, but nothing we won't get a handle on eventually. Irene's quilt is on the frame in this picture.

Some days are like this

Might help if I actually posted the picture heh? Here it is.

Paper Piecing class

Hello to all,
School starts tomorrow with two days of teacher stuff then we're off to the races. So I managed to get the sample done for a paper piecing class I'm teaching in West Virginia in December. It is based on Karen Stone's New York beauties and I modified her boarder for this small one. It's 24 X24 . Came out pretty good. Anyone interested in taking the class can contact me or Sheryl Carpenter at the Parkersburg Sewing and Quilting Center. or My email is I'm doing a snowman block swap that need out by Monday so will post again with pictures of those.
Hugs to all with hope that this will be a good school year.

Welcome to my world

this is all new to me but so far so good. I seem to have managed to get things in order I guess. I have posted pictures of some of my more crative quilts. But of course, I went through my pictures backwards so the Harry Potter quilt is the oldest, dating to 2000. and go forward from there. The Third Week in October was finished in March, and the Fourth of July finished up in June 2007. Well it's getting kinda early so I should go to bed so I can get up this morning and get to work....told you I'm not in my right mind;0) I'll have to change my time schedule once school starts in the fall. In the meantime my time schedule is backwards a bit. Hugs to all.
