I finally managed to get some cards done and in to one of the quilt shops... Still need lots more, but I have a quilting retreat this weekend, so that should help! One batch was some simple modernish ones. The cross eyed owl is a bit TOO cross eyed after I stitched down the middle of his face :-)
I'm having trouble getting cards done with other opportunities popping up all over the place. Last week I did some alterations on a wedding dress and made a shawl to go with it. I used some of the blue fabric left over to make a little scene for a wedding gift. It's just 5 x 7 inches, basically a big card.
I have since gotten some cards done, I'll put those pictures up soon! I'm still thinking about my latest request for a very non quilty project...if I do it I'll put up pictures, but I may scream and run the other way... :-)
I haven't been getting many cards done lately, I've been sidetracked by other projects! This is another version of the Moose Madness pattern that I quilted the sample quilt for. A local quilter, Nancy Hanneman, made this wonderful variation of the quilt and asked me to quilt it for her. She did a great job on the fabric selection!
I also had a wedding dress alteration, maybe next week I'll be back to cards...

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!
