I am enjoying the peak of fall color here. The trees just seem to be burning with color. I was hard pressed to choose a photos to use this time.
This week was a busy one. There was a meeting of the Finger Lakes Fiber Artists on Sat. I collected the quilts for the show I will be hanging for the group on Monday.
Marcia shared the new SAQA magazine and her work on a new jacket. This is the small quilt Pat shared with us.
Maureen is busy doing Indigo dyeing for her class with Jane Dunwald. She is really mastering this technique. Liz shared her projects form her class at the Barn. She is learning Shibori. And I am of benefitting from this experience because we are doing more together.
Regina has been busy this month finishing things from her classes at QBL. The triangles are from her class with Rosalie Dace. The quilt at the top on the right is from Cynthia Corbin’s class. Noel is playing with different quilting and piecing techniques. It was a very stimulating meeting with a varied group of creative gals.
We also had a FAB meeting today. Judy was working on a baby quilt for her church. We had our own little quilting bee as we tied it off before the end of the meeting.
Progress Report:Glyph IV I am done with the beading on the W now. That letter is the center so I feel like I have made progress.
Peeling Orange I am to the point where I am zig –zagging down the parts of this piece. I will do all of this before I quilt it.
Spring Whirl Wind ( Renamed from Tossed Salad as the blue does not work for salad. ) I am doing the line green with free motion quilting on this project. I wanted to push the green back a bit.
New Scrap I started building new blocks and pinning up possible layouts for the sixth quilt built from Ethel’s scrap box. It may change as I have only made three rows of blocks and they are not connected.
Zap I have cut the dark purple in the ZAP pattern. I stitched the parts to the fabric and I even zig -zagged around the right one. But it pulled and puckered up the fabric so much that I took all that stitching out and now there is inner facing on the back. I will re do the zig zag before quilting.
Creative Assistants Another new batch of silly little fellows. I am working away during the football games.
Card- Some Days This card is to celebrate having a day without any event. Feeling a bit over done- I am going to plan some days like this in every week from now on.
I will be traveling next week so there will not be a post. I will write all about it Nov. 9 .
Keep Crating until then.
