Around the studio, the floor is a mess and the machines are a hummin’.? I tell ya, I’ve been working like a crazy person.? I wish I could fill in the blog with all the pictures.? Especially the quilts from my new book releasing late this summer with Leisure Arts….? but alas… I’m not entirely sure why the quilting industry as a whole is so secretive about revealing new projects/patterns/fabric lines, but it is.? Those are just the rules.? I have loads of things I cannot quite show you until the project is published, but for now, I thought I’d leave you with this sneak peek of a quilted project due out next spring.
The whole quilt and pattern are set for publication in April 2013.? That’s all I can say.? :(? I can tell you, though, that when it is revealed, I think you are going to really like it.
The beautiful soft white fabric is Art Gallery Fabric’s Pure Elements.? The orange and red, which you can see, are Kona Solids.? Are there other colors, yes.? Can I tell you what they are … nope.? It looks like 90 degree angles in there.? Sure, can I tell you what they are or how big this “part” of the quilt is in real life … nope.
Check out that machine quilting. Finally something I can share everything about!!!? My machine quilter in Wichita Kansas, Evelyn, did an amazing job with her computer guided HandiQuilter long-arm.? It is really the coolest thing ever to see a computer completely drive such a big quilting machine.? I know there is alot that goes into running, owning, and maintaining a long arm, but that computer makes it look deceptively easy.? Evelyn is the owner and chief over at CelebrityQuilting.com? The all-over square panto is a digital design, Karen’s Modern Squares is by one of the designers on IntelligentQuilting.com.
