I just realized how long it had been since I last updated my blog. I have been caught up in teaching my summer lessons, making samples for my fall classes, organizing my upcoming trunk shows and of course working on a few things for my own enjoyment.
I recently completed two full sized quilt tops, waiting to be quilted and bound. One is made with various shades of blue and brown and the other is made with batiks, in lots of bright colours! It is the first entire quilt that I have made using batiks, I was thrilled with the final look. I received my first shipment of batiks in June and as soon as they came in my mind began to spin with all of the ideas that I had to use them for. I began with a table runner and then a bag and finally the full size quilt. Once both of my quilts are completed I will be posting the pictures.
Today I booked a booth for an upcoming craft show, which will be held in October at Durham College (2000 Simcoe St. N, Oshawa ON). I am very excited as this is the first craft show that I will be in. I also have two trunk shows coming up, one in September and the other in October, I can't wait for the fall!
One of my new projects that I will be teaching in the fall is a Christmas Tree wall hanging made with fabric yo-yos and buttons, it is a perfect way to use up 6" squares of various greens or Christmas fabrics and odd buttons!
