A beautiful quilt deserves a beautiful label. The label turned out beautiful for fellow quilt guild member Susie. She asked me to make this label for her award winning quilt. The Blue Jay details are so realistic.
4 weeks post TPOL surgery
My baby is recovering slowly, and that's just what the doctor ordered. Mostly very little activity for my girl. Leash walks out to the backyard for potty breaks, and then in her doggie play pen for the rest of the day. Once we reach week 6 she will be able to walk two fifteen minutes walks. Once in the am and once in the pm. It's hard thinking that my dog ever thinks like a human (me, human) . I have to watch her every waking moment. She will revert to her old dog habits in the blink of an eye if I let her. She only wants to take care of her pack, but for now her human MUST take care of her.
A quilt show and some beautiful quilts equal some good old fashioned inspiration. This past Friday me and my friend Rosa headed out early to Columbia, Md for Milltown Quilters of Columbia's quilt show. https://milltownquilters.com/quilt-show/ The quilts were amazing, the vendors were great, and "fellow guild member" Barbara Dahlberg's lecture, and trunk show "My Journey to Art Quilting" was full of inspiration. Here is a link to Barbara's website. http://www.barbarasartquilts.com
Quilt Ikebana is a class Barbara is offering in June that I want to take. Her "King" quilt, and "Dinner Conversation" were two of my favorites. Barbara had a lot of beautiful art quilts, and lots of quilting tips. I loved how she put a flange on most of her quilts.
T-Shirt Quilt #!
This T-Shirt quilt isn't like any t-shirt quilt I have ever seen, and I like it. (A Lot!) And the next t-shirt quilt is nice too. I really like the rounded corners.
T-Shirt Quilt #2
These were just two of my favorites that really stood out in my mind for future reference. Idea's are bubbling in my brain, hopefully I'll have a finish to show next time I blog.
