Jan's Jewel Of A Quilt

What Beautiful Eye Candy!

 If I am correct this is Jan's second quilt that she has made.
 She has a eye for Great Color!

 This quilt is going to be a graduation gift for her daughter.
Jan allowed me quilt this whatever way I choose.
I just loved the idea of "Feathers"

Knowing that Jan is new to the quilting world,  I look forward
 to seeing what she creates next!
It will be a Treat to See!!

Fun Times!

Before the start of the summer rush (we live at a seashore resort area),
 a group of us gathered at my mother's
 house for a wonderful luncheon, learned a new folded fabric technique
 and shared lots of laughs.
What a Fun Day!!!

Gail practicing her ripping out skills that will
 be made into future projects.

Donna working on her beautiful embroidery.

And Elena working on her new skill of Sashiko.

  A few days later I found myself reading
some great literature
"Quilting Arts"
Overlooking the beach and ocean.

 Then floating on the Lazy River

My machine is even having a holiday!

The One I Love!

Here is the quilt that just hits me the right way.
 I love everything about it.

I took a class by Natalie Sewell with some friends in beautiful
 Hudson Valley, New York.
This is the class that set me free from rules and restrictions.
When we used sharpie markers, white out inks and did not follow a pattern. I
knew I stumbled onto a process that I would love to do.  

I still smile when I think back to the little carry on suit cases that
most of us came with while we all seemed to show up with a 
over sized suitcases filled with fabrics.

One of my favorite things is meeting the women.
They came from California, Texas, New York, Washington D.C., New Jersey, Rhode Island and Canada. There was a art gallery curator, nurse, domestics goddess, office workers and retired professionals.
But we left feeling like

Does Stapling Count?

 NO Seams, Pins or Blocks
I recovered the dining room chairs!
The fabric is from Ikea.

 I like the clean sharp lines!
Hopefully I will be back at the machine this week!!
