Just a few random things to share today . . .
The first up, which I unfortunately don't have a photo of, was that I was asked to share last night at our guild meeting about my matched binding techniques. Speaking in front of people isn't in my comfort zone, but I did it. It was late, we were all anxious to get to "sew & tell," but I did it. Thankfully I had a few small samples to share - my first try, Scrap-Vee, and Red Hots. Plus, the quilts that had been displayed at Seattle's Folklife Festival were back, so I was able to share Aurora. I do find that I speed-talk when I talk about my quilting, but there were quite a few nods in the crowd as I was presenting, so I think it went pretty well considering everything.
What I've been working on lately is a mini quilt along with Quilt Jane - the Nested Churn Dash QAL. Actually, I'm waffling back and forth about whether it'll be a quilt or a pillow. I'm also very indecisive about the quilting, which I've started twice and taken a seam ripper to. So . . . stay tuned. But I love the pattern, and what I have so far. And I'm really enjoying seeing what others are doing with the pattern too.
Speaking of quilting, THIS is the latest pin to my fmq + wf etc. board on Pinterest. (Short hand for free-motion quilting + walking foot etc.) Isn't it fun? I don't think I'm ready to tackle it, but I sure do aspire to it!
Also, over on Sew, Mama, Sew this month, Jessica Skultety from Quilty Habit has curated the My Favorite Quilt series. Every day, a new quilter shares their own favorite quilt! It's similar but different to my own 31 Inspiring Quilters back in January, and there's a twist! You can link up your own favorite quilt! So check that out - I'm sure you'll enjoy the series. Start with today's post!
So that's it for now. Off to work I go! Hope you have a terrific day!
Linking up with Really Random Thursday.
