This week I met a few of my online blogger friends Sarah, Heather, and Kerri to get together at the new Modern Domestic building over in Portland. A brand new building set up with everything you need to spend time together and sew, cut, or even relax on a comfy couch while you hand quilt, just bring a project. I finally got to meet Kerri from the Seattle area (kinda), who I purchase fabric from frequently, and her shop was also the inspiration for my next quilt. I have been collecting Aqua, and gray fabrics for this one, and although some of these will not make it into the quilt, I just wanted to gather and decide when I'm done.
I also decided that this quilt will be for me. I have sewn for 15 years and have never really sewn anything for myself. (sad huh) I will be taking on a new venture in embroidery for this one as well, I purchased my first hoop this weekend and hope that it comes along as smoothly as everything else has so far. (wish me luck) I will defintly post photos of progress.
Here is me and heather with our NEW orla tablecloth.
Arn't we SEW cute
I have also been warned by miss Heather, that if I ever brought something from the shop to work on she would 86 me from the guild (ha ha kidding of course)
So I have taken on a quilt that a friend of mine is writing, I am testing out the pattern to see how it flows, and so far it's been fun. I am not quite sure how much I am allowed to spill before it's released so I think I will leave you with this yummy photo of by progress so far (I'm still cutting it out ;)
Besides staying busy with the shop as usual, I have taken on a few new projects now that the little one is feeling better. Spring break was an eye opener for some great things to come. After the shop is caught up (very soon) I have a new tutorial for you all (Yay)
What did you work on this week?
