Here’s an Idea

Bird and Ladybug

Bird and Ladybug by Laura Wasilowski

I often wonder what people do with my patterns after they purchase them. Recently, I saw a version of the Bird and Lady Bug pattern as an auction piece at the Dallas Quilt Show. Hope it made big money for a good cause!

That way she can wash the pillow without worrying about frayed fabric edges. Thanks for sharing your work with us Lorrayne!

There’s Always One by Annie

It’s always a thrill to see finished art work created by one of my students. This fun little village was made by Annie who attended my class at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Can you guess why her delightful quilt is called “There’s Always One”?

annieshousebSee the fish swimming counter to the others? That’s Annie. She’s always thinking outside of the box and that is why her art work is so fun. Thanks for sharing your work with us Annie!

Windy City on the Move

Windy City #2 (4″x 6″) by Laura Wasilowski

Windy City #2 is finished and ready to ship off to Wish Upon a Card. The next time I’ll see it will be in Sisters, OR. From July 3 – 7 I’m teaching 5 different workshops at Quilter’s Affair.

My return to Sisters will be a grand reunion. Not only will I see this little quilt framed and ready for auction but many friends attend the event too. (They will not be framed.) Good times! 

Stitch the House Down!

windycity2cThe stitching on my little house quilt is racing right along. And that’s good because the deadline for its donation to Wish Upon a Card is coming up soon. Never let it be said that I am a procrastinator. OK, you can say it. Because it’s true.

windycity2dYou’ll recognize many of the embroidery stitches I’m using from my Thread-u-cation Tutorials. I’m especially liking the Fly Stitch around the pinked edge of the tree. A few more stitches and Windy City #2 will be finished and off to Sisters, OR.

A New Series and Wishing

windycity2aOne of the many activities at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show in Sisters, OR is the opportunity to bid on art work by donors for Wish Upon a Card. Here is the start of my donation quilt for this year, Windy City #2.

windycity2bEach year I try to come up with a different name for my house quilts. And since I live near Chicago, Windy City seemed like the perfect name for a new series. This is a small piece (4″ x 6″) made with fused fabrics and hand embroidered. Soon it will be finished and off to the framers. Next time I see it will be in Sisters!
