I’ve Been Thinking……. from Quilt Paint Create

When I don’t get much creative time, I spend lots of time thinking about what I’ll do when I have it again. Ideas wander through my mind about projects, techniques and experiments. It’s a good thing and a bad thing all rolled into one. I love hanging out with ideas and have a hard time resisting new projects.
Here’s some of what I’ve been thinking about.
How my Art Quilt Group had a dye day (that I was unable to attend) and dyed cheesecloth and yarn in with their fabric. This created coordinating sets.

10 Ways the Cricut Maker Can Help With Quilting! Your New Bestfriend!

 

10 Ways the Cricut Maker Can Help With Quilting! Your New Bestfriend!

  1. ACCURACY 

The Cricut Maker accurately cut out shapes to any quilt blocks.

All Cut with the Cricut Maker Tula Pink City Sampler

This is especially critical when making a 6 inch square block with 29 pieces.  With any cutting error the block will not square up to fit into your quilt.  Even my puppy and tortoise can see that this is one squared up block!  Thank you Cricut Maker for the accurate cutting!

The McCarthy Road from Tales of a Stitcher

I wrote this essay the day after I drove the McCarthy Road for the first time. That was in August 2001. The images are from the last ten years of driving this road including yesterday.

I start out going ten miles an hour down this dirt road that will lead me to McCarthy, Alaska. I can do this. 

I can do this. Even though I know the clanking tire jack in my backseat is there only for making music–I cannot change a tire.  The D, as in dog, I received in Driver’s Education marred my high school academic ...

Ideas, Images, and Updates August 2017 from Tales of a Stitcher

Yes. The title is correct. I am still struggling to make a monthly update part of my life. Eventually, this update will become my e-newsletter. The current plan is to catch up—write August 2017 through June 2018—and then launch the newsletter. We will see. Any advice on this project would be most welcome.

August 2017 was a really good month.

I started it by writing an article for Quilting Arts Magazine. The article turned into a quilt which I would very much like to finish. I am calling it Four Play as I have four units/blocks/motifs ...

Ideas Into Form #4 from Quilt Paint Create

We left off with the flower fabrics chosen but nothing cut out.
I used the fabrics and the design as planned. Once I cut out all the flower pieces I auditioned leaf and stem fabrics the same way, by laying them out with the flowers.
After a lot of tracing, cutting and fusing it all came together.
floral runnerI plan to add some greenery between the flowers to fill in some of the open spots, but not until everything else is appliqued.
For now I need to set it aside and work on a few other things. It took a lot ...
