A lot of quilters ask "how do you take an online quilting class?". Everyone seems very interested and eager to try so I decided to make it easy for quilters and sewers to learn by writing a short class for newcomers to experience the concept of online quilt learning. Instead of just a question and answer page, I wanted a hands on experience and so the book cover with applique flowers was born. It is a wonderful creative idea for a gift with your personal touch.
One of my projects last year was to recreate any one of my quilt pattern designs. My choice was "A Freshness of Spring".
This quilt was born in 2006. It was created in shades of blue for the background and daisies of white with yellow centers. Today I have remade it, creating a more scenic view using background shades of green, purple and blue.
During the Christmas/New Year period, I like to catch up on some unfinished work or make a start on a new project - time permitting of course. It is not always possible, but this past season I did achieve more than expected. I remade one of my patterns in new colors, I quilted another which had been waiting for over a year to be quilted and I finally wrote up and made a new sample for my Bargello in Summer pattern.
Did you realize that scrap quilts actually have thought put into them when it comes to color and fabrics? Anita Eaton loves to make scrap quilts and today she is going to share some of her thoughts about choosing fabrics and colors for them.
