Making kits and machine quilting

I am working on machine quilting a triptych. I am quilting the last panel. It isn’t difficult quilting but I am really bored with it. I am currently listening to Laurie King’s The Language of Bees and it keeps my behind in the chair to work on this.


These are all the tails from working today.

I am also getting ready for the fall classes and shows. I realized Laura and I are vending at two shows this fall, plus all our teaching engagements, so for a change I am trying to be prepared ahead of time. I will be spending 10 days in August with the DGC and I need to get all the fabric dyed for these events. Here are yesterdays kits lined up and waiting to go into their bags.


On the right are kits for Autumn Mums 1 1/4 yards of blackened rainbow fabric plus 1/4 yard Frieda green and 5 1/8 yards of flower colors.

Next to that are 1/2 yards of red to lime green for Field Poppies.

On the right are 1/4 yards of Grass greens for all kinds of patterns and finally 1/2 yards of turquoise, 1/4 yard of blues and 1/4 yards of yellows for Daffodils. I keep busy don’t you think?
