Bluebird is finished.

 Details on the class will be coming soon.

 Love the quilting that Cut Up and Quilt did. I bound it with the border fabric.

Love some more Mirages!

Susan B
 I had a good time on Saturday working with a fun group of quilters that wanted to make the Mirages quilt. They came prepared with fabric squares cut, so we could start right in on cutting our circles and sewing them back together. Lots of pretty fabrics and great attitudes made it a fun day.

 As you can see, some very creative minds at work here. Different color choices always inspire us all.



This is another quilt in the Circle and Spin series. It's a little more organized that some of them, and not as many cuts, but I still used not so perfect circles. The challenge quilt I recently completed was another one in the series with many more cuts and more muted fabrics. I like the way it turned out as well, thought it's definitely a different take on this type of quilt than I usually do. I will be posting pictures of it soon.

Mirages again

 Deb N. recently sent me this picture to show me her finished quilt. She only used four different fabrics, which makes for another interesting design. I'm teaching the techniques for the Mirages quilt tomorrow at Cut Up and Quilt so I'm excited to see what the new students come up with.

I finished the Challenge quilt label last night. I plan to sew it on tonight (or soon). This one has kept me thinking the whole time and at some points I didn't know if I liked it. Does that ever happen to you? I guess it has to go through the ugly stage before Now I can go on to working on the new sampler and finishing the mystery quilt for upcoming classes.
