Sewing Room Update, 6/28/24

You remember when I said I loved all the fun templates popping up on Instagram. Here is the latest batch.

This is probably my favorite so far...

I completed the Welcome to London quilt, including the label. It's a large one but I found a place to include the patches I had purchased.

My project this summer/fall is to make quilts just because I love the patterns and want to make them. Most of them have recipients in mind. I started with this Pen + Paper Patterns design called Snap Happy. Lindsey writes great and easy-to-follow patterns, and this was a lot of fun. 

Ella gave me the cutest sticker she had gotten at summer school. I added it to my sewing table. Maybe it will help with quilt math. I can only hope...

During this two-week span where my show is airing on The Quilt Show (although it is always available if you have a membership), before the next new episode airs, they advertise it in the newsletter. I'm documenting it along the way, as it will never happen again. :) Although I did get this fortune at lunch the other day... haha.

The other fun thing The Quilt Show does in the newsletter is turn quilts into digital puzzles, which they did with both Delta Breeze, Grand Prismatic and Lumos. It was fun to read the descriptions.

Someone left this extremely kind comment.

It's been a fun experience--something I didn't think I would ever say. It was so out of my comfort zone, but in retrospect, I'm really glad I didn't say no finally said yes.

I'll leave you with these thoughts...

Given your love for finding murals to photograph your quilts with, I'm not surprised about the template that you like best. :) That is so neat that your quilts got turned into puzzles. Off to go check that out!

I'm impressed with the many ways the Quilt Show advertised your segment. Their publicity is really remarkable. And I love the comment left on their web site. Your quilts are always beautiful and I love how adventuresome you are. Please, keep on quilting and blogging.

The way you find inspiration in carpets and tiles and your general surroundings is something I've always admired about the way you work. So happy you were able to share it on the show. Well done.

Again, congratulations on your big moment! It seems you knocked it out of the park. And I appreciate the comment from the person who recognizes that you're not trying to sell anything. You're "just" a maker, like many of us, who enjoys making quilts. Your quilts "just" happen to be quite spectacular! Well done you. It's indeed worthwhile to document all this, as someday you look back on this special time and appreciate it all anew. The introvert cartoon is a perfect explanation of that personality type. While I am not one of them/you, I fully appreciate how socializing can be draining. For precisely the opposite reason, I need to socialize to be energized!
