New Camera

Just bought a new camera and am trying to learn it. Here are some pics of the Hazel Ridge Path quilt from the Cannon PowerShot A4000IS.
Here's the Hazel Ridge Path quilt on my design wall. I thought you might enjoy seeing my work space. It's half of my basement. You can see reflected in the mirror, my 51" screen TV. I love to watch old, old movies, soap operas and sports while I sew. So you've seen my mess and know all my secrets!

Here's a close up so you can see my quilting. The quilting in the geese is free hand, but I sewed through quilter's tracing paper for the designs in the large triangles. I was always a good tracer as a kid. Someday I hope to master free form feathers, but until then I'm happy with my tracing paper results. 

I've been quilting this in rows, then sewing the rows together. I've got the borders pieced and will quilt them next. After it's all done, I'll show more details and tell exactly where the rows were put together and how.

Till next time.... Happy Quilting!

My Quilt is in China!

Last March I blogged about my charm quilt being accepted in an exhibit that is touring China. The update is, it arrived in China and the exhibit, The Sum of Many Parts is scheduled to open in September. The organizers, South Arts, have put up a webpage here. You can see more about the exhibit here. You can see a slide show of the quilts here.

Quilts by Caryl Bryer Fallert, Carole Harris, Patricia Cox and Carolyn Mazloomi are also in the exhibit, so I'm in very good company.

Till next time.......Happy Quilting
