Stitchers Garden # 5
This is really a fun class, learning all about the feet for my sewing machine. But as usual I am a bit behind on "homework". So I am rushing, and after putting the squares together, and ironing the batting to the back, I rushed to iron on the flowers.. and guess what, I forgot to "quilt" the back ground.
Well, where there is the will there is a way.. and you know this block has to be the one with more small pieces then any of the others.. One way to remember for next time is to goof,, will not forget that step again. I marked off the lines, and then just where I came to the leaves and flowers, I dragged the thread across, it will be anchored when adding the decorative stitching. Remember only takes a moment to reread the instructions..
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
