Antique Tulip Applique Quilt
Have you use the clip block feature before? In a layout like this one, I find it useful. Here is the final quilt (EQ rendition). If you end up making the quilt, I would love to see photos.
St. Cloud Heritage Club Meeting
Thursday evening I was privileged to be able to present my lecture on Specialty Rulers to the quilt guild in St. Cloud.
It was also fun to get first peak at their raffle quilt -- it was amazing with over 3000 pieces in it. I am looking forward to attending their show next fall.
God's Light Warms the Soul
I am currently exhibiting 11 of my quilts in a private showing at North Heights Lutheran Church. The exhibit is entitled "God's Light Warms the Soul". It includes original designs (including Sun Rays, Whim Wham Stars, It's a Mystery and Be My Valentine) along with quilts I made from purchased designs.
The address is:
North Heights Lutheran Church
1700 West Hwy. 96
Arden Hills, MN 55112
The closing date for the exhibit has been extended until the end of March. So there is still time to see the quilts!
Elsa and Anna Quilt Update
The Elsa and Anna panel quilt is now finished. I even have the binding completed. This was a lot of fun to quilt with textures for the clothing, and lots of snowflakes throughout the rest of the quilt. Below are close-ups, so you can get a better view of the quilting.
I received a question on how I lined up the creative fill I completed in Art and Stitch with the actual quilting space on my machine. True confessions -- I didn't. I ended up bringing in the creative fill before clipping. I created a "block" by outlining the clothing using the trace feature on my Intelliquilter. I then clipped the creative fill using my newly created block.
