I've added some new photos to my Christmas Wallhanging album that show more angels I will be using for the interior of the composition.

Some of the outer blocks for my Christmas wallhanging. The outer blocks will be about 10". The little inner diamond is about 4". These motifs are machine stitched on a 6 spool Babylock machine. Each motif was roughly 35-45 minutes to stitch.

One of my goals for 2012 is to explore color in a little more depth than usual. As the various challenges presented themselves, I thought these might be the perfect opportunities to try some new ideas. With that in mind, I have decided to make a fabric book with each page representing a color on the color wheel. Following the color wheel is easy since it has 12 basic colors and the year has 12 months!
I rarely work in the pure colors or with black and white combinations so that is…Continue

If there's one thing I have found out for certain recently its that its so easy to get sucked in by the dazzle of it all. After all, the ~WOW~ factor is huge. Also is the idea that it is very much possible to recreate this oneself. You don't have to have an art school degree to have this kind of…Continue
There's a group of ladies here in town called the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild. Lovely people. They have a monthly Block of the Month thing and this month's theme was analogous colors - Blue, Blue-Green and Green. I thought I might try my hand at it. I had found a lot of pictures of French Braid…Continue

I have started with my crazy quilt and have to do 25 blocks 50x50cm each.
I have now completed 18 and need to get 7 more done.
Have decided to do all the blocks and then lay out where I plan to use the lace
and then will start working on each one separately.
I cannot wait to get started but sadly seem to be unable to get to the rest of the
basic blocks. grrrrrr

Debra, thanks so much for starting this Group and feel sure it will be a confidence booster.
I began patchwork and quilting in 2004 and belong to a local group of wonderful ladies who are always generous in sharing their talents.
Over the past few years have favoured surface embrodiery learned through courses, internet and resource books. Following completion of Sharon's recent Encrustered CQ course was delighted to sign up for TAST, as I have spent sometime over the past few…Continue
