After seeing and hearing about everyone else’s exciting projects during three CE events this summer — namely the African American Quilt Conference in Lawrence, KS, then Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA, and our joint Customer Appreciation Day event with Yara African Fabrics in the Bronx, NY — I decided to stop everything and get back to my own machine.
I set myself up in the garage last Sunday, one of those perfect-weather days, and stitched up some not-so-random blocks using CE’s ABC Strip Bundles… sipped water and wine between blocks, it was fabulous! The open garage gave me the perfect combination of indoors and outdoors. I need to do that more often… like maybe this Sunday! Then I’ll be packing up the Janome Jem Gold for our SewJourn Colorado Mountain Retreat, starting this Wednesday ; )
This is what I have so far – imagine 12 more blocks, with black silk douppioni sashing…hopefully I can move it forward during our retreat.
So what are you sipping and sewing this summer, and where are you doing it? Comment below for the chance to win a mini-strip bundle! All comments posted by Wednesday at 12 noon will be eligible to win…Good Luck!
