There's a lot going on in the Quilty Habit studio these next couple of weeks. I'm making a wonky cross quilt with a bunch of different fabrics from Cloud 9 Fabrics; I'm hoping to teach a class in the fall/winter. It's basic slice and insert piecing with my favorite "planned" improvisation. This project is pure fun and I get excited just thinking about it. That's why I snapped this picture of it all on my floor/design wall. :D Sooo pretty - apparently I've been loving cascading colors lately. Plus I have purple toes. That's a win in my book.
This doesn't look like much yet (because it's a sneak peek), but I was auditioning fabrics to finish my Cloud 9 Cirrus Solids Mini Quilt Challenge quilt for the August CJMQG meeting. It's improvisational cathedral windows, and I'd love to teach this technique, too. I totally made this up and it's been thrilling to experiment with.
Finally, I basted the giant plus quilt. I can't WAIT to finish this up and hand it off to its very eager future owners! I'll be doing some wavy walking foot quilting like Breeze. It will be a workout though - this thing is a bit larger than queen sized. I can't even hold it up by myself! In August, I will be available for more commission giant plus quilts if anyone is interested. Feel free to leave a comment or email me!
