You're likely thinking I haven't been "living up to" my blog name Stitch Lines lately. You are right, there hasn't been a lot of stitchin' goin' on... at least not that I've shown. But today I can now show you one small project that's complete, mailed off and now received. Several weeks ago, Sheila won my "1000 Posts Giveaway", the offering being a quilted iPad case. She was happy with that idea (not sure what I would have offered if she didn't have an iPad or tablet... haha) Anyway she told me she'd like one in blue. Since I've been on a bit of a green kick lately, I chose several blue fabrics but threw in a little green as well. Here is the resulting case. I make small adjustments/changes and notes with each case I make, and after four, each slightly different, I think I've got it down pat now. I've decided I prefer the strips on the outside pocket running diagonally as on this one and on Laura's case.
I will have some more "stitching" to show you soon, I have started a new miniature in reds and lights, using up many very small triangles left over from a larger quilt. The blocks are 2.25" square with 49 pieces in each block... Yes, I know. I'm crazy... Certifiable, probably.. I have another Miniatures class coming up in 10 days so that always spurs me on to get going on a new one...
And last night a loyal reader (Hi JK!) told me she wants to see what's going on with all the green and neutral squares I've been cutting, so you'll be seeing that soon too... :)
I will be teaching two classes at the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival in October, info is slowly being added to their website. As soon as the website is completely updated, I'll be adding a link on my sidebar. Watch for it!
Life is a story. Make yours the best seller.
