I've been relaxing at my house for the summer, which means, cleaning up my tiny studio here on long Island... Every summer I go about trying rearrange the space to maximize it's small space and clean out all the other STUFF that accumulates all year long! How does that happen? ( I have no idea!)
Summer is my favorite time to sit back, and dream up new projects and ideas! My best work is done while getting my nails done, or even a massage. ;-) Or walking along the pier having ice cream...(hey, you never know when ideas will hit!) I'm working on many new templates and patterns right now! I tell you, having a few weeks down to rest up, makes the ideas flood right in!
Just wait til fall: Lots of new goodies!
Be sure to keep an eye at VFWquilts.com for new products!
This is also a time when I love to work on my commission quilts. I love designing for others where I can do whatever I want, make it as complicated or difficult as I can to make a beautiful gift for my customers. This is a quilt for a collage artist... I had several ideas come together and figured, she of all people will truly appreciate the joining and layering of ideas in one quilt! Many of the fabrics were chosen by her, and my job is to make them live happily together, and fit a story I put together based on some writings by my customers about people in their family. I have a back log of these works, as they often take me longer to get made, among all my regular deadlines and travels.
My newest template set has been such a hit, I was asked to add another class at:
I LOVE teaching here! I have two classes next year there. A five day Double wedding Ring class which is sold out. And now this class! A four day Cottage tulip class! You will get so much done, build skills, master skills and make some gorgeous quilts! Class registration opened Tuesday afternoon, and we only have three spots left. I highly recommend grabbing a spot ASAP! It's about 1.5 hours drive from Minneapolis airport in Downsville, WI, which is right near Menominee, WI (Univ of WI : Stout) ...and its GORGEOUS! check out her website for details.
