Yesterday was a busy day in my studio. (I use the term loosely, it's really just a room, and a small one at that. But it has functioned as the studio in Jillily Studio for several years now.) I spent most of the day just trying to find surface area to work on. I am still cutting kits for the "Around the Town" quilt in American Patchwork and Quilting. To those of you who are still waiting... I am still cutting, and also waiting for more fabric to arrive. I think last week's snow / ice / cold storms held things up across the midwest. Several of my suppliers were closed a few days. So be patient, maybe the rest of the fabric will come tomorrow!
How many people can you get in one sewing room? We each had a quadrant on the cutting/ironing table. Sometimes I wonder about the safety of having so many sharp / hot objects in such close proximity!
Andrea (my neice) was working on the quilt from the corals and creams I showed you last week. This quilt is going to be so cute! I can't wait to see it finished. I will show it to you after it is all quilted. Andrea's mom is one of my long arm quilters, Tori. So you know it will be a work of art when it is done.
Talia (my daughter) was working on the quilt she had planned with her fabric stack from last week also. She got the whole thing pieced, and even added borders. Here's a shot of just the center. I told you it was a modified version of one the quilts ("Hugs and Kisses") from my book. But I think it is even cuter than the original!
Erin (daughter-in-law) was making a little tiny apron for Emmy to wear. It turned out so darling. But I can't get Ems to hold still long enough to take a picture, so this one is blurry, as usual. She is ready to go cook something! Knowing her, it will probably be noodles.
Have you been sewing this week? What are you working on? I want to see pictures. Some of you promised me at Road to California that you would send photos of your finished projects. I don't have any yet. Still waiting.
