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!


  1. What a nice, big space & your quilt is beautiful!

  2. I love seeing your work space - how wonderful!

  3. I AM going to try quilting one row a time --- one of these days. Looks like you've got the "hang" of working the new camera.

  4. Love your sewing room and the quilt is beautiful. I'm having a little give away. Can you help me pass the word along? And be sure to enter.

  5. I love the owls quilting pattern! I took a class in quilting feathers from Sue Nickels at the AQS show in Grand Rapids. She has inspired me to machine quilt feathers.

  6. this is a nice quilt :)
