Sewing and Sleeping

I’ve been attempting to get a lot of sewing done, but work has been so busy, I’ve been coming home and passing out on the couch. Gus has been attempting to keep me motivated.

I sent more patterns off to Crimson Tate.

I finished up that baby quilt I was working on. It turned out really great. Joanna was really happy with it.

I’ve been working on my Merry Go Round quilt in class at Crimson Tate. My friend Brooke talked me into it. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because the pattern looks really traditional. With a little Denyse Schmidt fabric, I fell in love. Here it is up on the design wall. Heather, the owner of Crimson Tate put it up on the shop facebook page and Denyse Schmidt LIKED IT!

I also started taking an online calligraphy course. I probably could have chosen a better timing, but I’ve really been wanting to take it.

I’ve also been sewing bags and getting ready for the Fountain Square Art Fair here in Indianapolis on September 22nd.

This one is my personal favorite.

So that’s what’s been going on here. What have you been working on?

First Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild Meeting!

For me anyway. It was at my usual fabric store this past Saturday, so I decided to go check it out. I had a great time. Even though I sat at a table with some ladies I already sort of knew, I discovered one woman is my neighbor! We shared stories of awful neighbors because the neighborhood is a little sketchy. She calls it “transitional” which I thought was fitting.

The best part of the meeting was show-and-tell. It was so awesome to see what everyone else was working on and had finished. There were lots of people with different levels of experience so there was a wide range of designs and styles. Here are some of my favorites.

Sorry the photos are not the best. It was a packed house. There were over 20 attendees which was apparently the biggest turn out yet. I’m excited for the next meeting and getting to know these ladies better and see more of their projects.

If you are in the Indianapolis area and interested in joining, you can check out their blog for more info.
