Working for free 14

Time for a quick rant(s) to get stuff off my chest, please feel free to ignore: Posts about companies asking artists for free work have popped up on my FB feed (see HERE and HERE). Artists are UP IN ARMS that they’re asked to do work for free. Look, EVERYONE who has a specialty in […]

5th Annual Action Kivu Fundraiser

Another year flies by and it’s time again for the Action Kivu fundraiser hosted by Alissa Haight Carlton. What does Action Kivu do? Action Kivu helps women and children who are victims of the conflict in Eastern Congo. The conflict in Congo has taken the lives of over 5.4 million people since 1998. Rape is […]


War on WIPs: The Eastern Front 1

The primary work on these four quilts is done. Two are going to be quilted some more; I decided to cross-hatch quilt them. Tomorrow I start working on the off centre quilt. I don’t want to screw it up so I’m gonna go sloooow. Look what I won from Robert Kaufman! Now I have to […]

Four topics in search of a post 4

1. Update I’ve been quilting! I’ve finished the quilting on two quilts and I have three more to go. It is going slowly but they are getting done. The first quilt has more than a fair share of mistakes that will take time to fix. I’m hoping to take some time off of work to […]

Don’t Look At The Back 5

And that’s that. I finished this top just in time to go pick up my 7700. It was a side trip into a type of quilting I don’t expect to do often. I’ll finish it eventually but for now I’m happy that the top is done. The next couple of days will be quilting-light so […]


More Luke Work and Featherweight Practice 5

I did some more work on my Luke Haynes class homework and used the opportunity to practice more with the Featherweight (I haven’t gotten the 7700 back yet). Working with salvaged clothes is a PAIN. The black striped fabric was especially frustrating to work with, it came from a pair of work pants and is way too […]

Featherweight Wednesday 7

My Janome 7700 is in the shop getting its yearly tune-up so I decided to get some practice in with the Featherweight. After using the 7700 on a daily basis for the last year the Featherweight feels SMALL in comparison. That’s not a bad thing, just a variable to get used to. I’m not sure […]

4th of July Basting-Palooza 5

Yesterday Maureen and I pin-basted four quilts (don’t worry, she was paid handsomely for her time). We started around 11:30 and finished after 10pm. I’m not sure if I ever want to baste this many quilts in one sitting again; I was sore all-over. Next week I take my machine in to be serviced and […]
