You may recognize the quilt as the House in the Woods project from my book Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts. Didn’t she do a wonderful job on the stitching? Her fabric choices and hand embroidery add those swirls like a Van Gogh painting with stitchery. Thank you Jennifer for sharing your work with us!
One of the perks of being a traveling teacher is seeing amazing sights like this. This is Boldt Castle placed on Heart Island in the St. Lawrence River north of Watertown NY.
My visit to Boldt Castle was arranged by my lovely hostess, Laura, from the North Country Quilt Guild in Watertown. Before my evening lecture, Laura gave me the gift of a visit to the castle. Thank you Laura!
Did you know that Frieda Anderson has a new class out on Craftsy? It’s called Machine Quilting the Home Sweet Home Quilt. Frieda is an expert machinist. And she can teach you how to add free motion stitching to your quilt top from start to finish. You should check it out!
Craftsy is a great way to learn something new from an instructor. Your Craftsy class never expires. Take my class, Hand-Stitched Collage Quilts, for instance. You own it forever. And I shall remain the same age on screen for years!
