Another day in Winter Wonderland. Sad yet joyous news was received yesterday; Great American Quilt Factory - a Denver, quilting institution has decided to close after 30 years. What an accomplishment - 30 years in the quilting business! If you're a local and you plan to hit their closing sale, rather than bemoaning their closing, try telling the owners and employees how much you're going to miss them and thank them for all of their years of providing a great place to meet with friends, take wonderful classes and purchase great quilt art supplies (I'm just sayin')
Here are photos of another of my latest quilt and color pieces. As you can see in the first photo, all I mark are the major circles. In the second photo you can see that all of the motif stitching has been completed. The third photo shows it with all of the background area stitched too. The final photo is of the completed piece done in neutrals and metallics.
This technique is so much fun and has been a great way for me and my new machine to get acquainted!
I'll be back soon with some more GREAT news!
