under construction

I  figured what has been happening in my quilting life these past 6 months.
My quilting life has been about expanding my repataou of images and skills. Finding new ways to interpert the joy in my quilting.

I am taking 2 new classes this year  as well as an existing class and a couple of weekly sit and sew days .

Because of this zany and stimulating adventure my quilting has been lots of prep, mess and slow progress. Maybe I can find a new way to post about the little parts rather than the big picture.

To that end a series of photos of the newest construction site because I  wanted an easy project for the treadle .

Construction from cutting up scraps in the kitchen/ family room to assembly on the treadle in my corner of the lounge room.

Updates to follow.

Happy creating Terry

Quilting up date and Life

This time of year is happily devoted to family .

A very tall tree for a small boy. Decorating the tree was a hit with all 3 grand children as was the summer season.

The sewing time included a new facination with Boro

The slow easy strait stitching proved to be just the thing for short periods of sewing time.

The completion of the center of this quilt encouraged me to spend some time with three strip boarders. They are outside my normal comfort zone but I am quite excited with the progress.

So much so that all the hexies are covered ,arranged and stitched in short groups. 88 hexegons to be appliqued in place. Tomorrow is the first class of the year and I am looking forward to a "how to" lesson from Margaret Sampson George. Her approach to giving new life to earlier work is contagious.

Happy Stitching Terry

Two Months of Stitching

Life is good and some stitching has happened.


A paper pieced table runner Wild and Goosey by Bonnie Humter.

A charity quilt made of the remains of at least 5 charm packs . It goes to the LAQ tomorrow and then on to a local charity group.

Three previous pieces of stitching came out to play.

 This almost finished applique was supposed to be one of 4. It is now destined to stand alone. Updates as work progresses.

Still looking for a bit of zing while working on border pieces.

I think the spirals may find a home after Christmas.  For now they are back in the parts department.

All of these quilts are slow stitching which is just fine with me.

Enjoy Terry
