The quilt show is only 4 weeks away. Bizzy Lady and I are very very busy these last few weeks leading up to the show. I have gotten my quilts quilted. Now it’s time for me to do the binding for 4 quilts.
Bizzy Lady and I are trying to fill in time to do our crafts but we won’t have time until after the show. We have been designing a quilt to display for everyone. That will be coming soon.
I have almost completed the August Hexie BOM. The next Hexie BOM for September is a chick.
Lately I have seen a lot of of quilting inspirations and my project list has increased.
I can’t believe its September already. I don’t even want to think about Fall or Winter yet.
Bizzy Lady and I along with another member of the guild are Co-Chairs for 2014 Great Lake African American Quilter Network Quilt Show.
If you are in the Detroit Metro Area October 4-5, 2014. Please come out to the show. There will be over 100 quilts on display. There will be demos, make and take, door prizes and vendors. We will also have several Special Exhibits on display.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. My mother, sister and I spend a few days in North Carolina.
I feel like a gypsy with all the traveling I have been doing the last 2 months, but I’m glad to say I am done for a little while. It was very HOT in NC. It’s always good to have time to spend with family.
I was able to go to a quilt shop while I was there. These are my treasues I purchased.
I was happy when I found this fabric. It’s extra wide linen. I can’t wait to come up with a design that will showcase this fabric.
The Craft Diva’s have a lot in store and I hope you come back to see.
I hope yall are having a good weekend. I have been on call for work all week so I have staying close to home.
Bizzy Lady and I have been very busy and haven’t had a lot of time to post as frequently as we want. Hopefully we will get back on track. It was nice to see that some of you responding to our previous post by taking the poll. A lot of our readers want to see more projects and how to do post. Stay tuned, we are working on a fun new small quilt for everyone to use for their personal use.
I have been seeing a nail polish quilt on Instgram and of course it was a bright shiny object to me. The free quilt pattern is on Fat Quarter Shop website. I am so in love with this quilt. It is very fast to construct. I completed my top, cross stitch quilted and added the binding. I think I will be making another one.
I also made a small quilt with fabric choices that I thought were cool.
I was designing the backing and decided I liked it to much and will make it a top instead.
So it’s going to be a two part series using black and white fabric to tie them together.
Bizzy Lady and I are super excited because, we are attending AQS in Grand Rapids, MI this week. We are taking two classes and two lecture sessions. I can’t wait to go shopping. I want to purchase Auril Thread and a cool new quilting tool.
From time to time Bizzy Lady and I want to know from you all what you would like for us to blog about. We have so many things going on and so little time to blog about everything that we are working on.
This is a great time to hear back from our followers. We want to make sure we keep our blog exciting enough for you to keep coming back each day.
Please take a little time to fill out this survey/poll. We would love to hear back from everyone. Please leave comments as well on what you would like to see.
I am also happy to say that Bizzy Lady and I will be attending Quilt Con in 2015.
Hope to hear from yall. The next time I talk yall will hear from me, I will be in Colorado.
During the summer Bizzy Lady and I stay very busy. So I haven’t had a lot of time to do quilting but I have to try to fit it in during the summer. I am leaving next week for a business trip and I will need to take some hand projects with me.
The Hexie Block of the Month for July is a cutie ice cream cone.
I have selected my colors and this is what I came up with.
I have also completed June’s Hexie BOM.
I also found a little time to complete two more blocks for a quilt project I have been working on since last October. Its a Michael Miller pattern that I fell in love with.
I wanted to showcase this modern style fabric that I purchased awhile ago. I didn’t want to cut the fabric up and take away from its pattern, so I thought this quilt design would be good.
I hope everyone is enjoying your summer and is having a wonderful time quilting.
For the last week Bizzy Lady and I and one of our other friends spend my birthday in Jamaica. It was so amazing. We were at the Riu Palace in Montego Bay. The resort staff were the nicest people we have ever met. The were so accommodating.
It was wonderful. I concurred the Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Ricos. It was an experience I will never forget. The Dunn’s River Falls and Park is an amazing flowing falls that extends across more than 183 meters or 600 feet. It took us about 1 – 1.5 hours to climb the entire falls.
We also took the Cool Running Cruise to get to Ocho Rios. That was so relaxing and the water is so beautiful and clear.
My birthday was July 10th and the wait staff brought me a birthday cake and sung to me. Also when we got back to our room they had the room decorated for me.
Of course quilting ideas were everywhere. These are a few that kept my mind going.
We are glad to be back but I would love to go back one day.
