Pink Greater Than

Finished up a little baby girl quilt!  Named it Pink Less Greater Than (my math memory is definitely less than great and I got it backwards! Name adjusted!) because it looks kinda like a greater than symbol.

Pink Less Than

I made this block…

SMS Modern BOM - October

…for my Modern Block of the Month awhile back and I wanted to make a whole quilt version. I foresee more exploration of this design in the future.

I had fun with the quilting on this one.

I echoed the piecing with straight lines in gray and then I filled in the piecing with vertical straight lines in pink.

I was happy with how it came out!

All 12 blocks from the Sew, Mama, Sew! Modern Block of the MonthAnd speaking of my Modern Block of the Month, I’m going to be teaching all 12 blocks over the course of a year at Sew Modern! Every second Saturday of the month, from 2pm to 5pm.

You can either sign up for the whole year, or just one month at a time!

A lil’ quilt.

I sewed up a little sample for my class at Sew Modern. A beginner’s how to quilt class that includes some fun improv. piecing of log cabins. Just a little 30″ square quilt with four big blocks that sew up quickly.

Sew Modern Class Sample

I’m pretty sure the class is almost full but I’ll list it more in the future too.

This little center is my favorite part of the quilt. I love these gray stripes.  I’m in a stripes place these days.

Jacquie comes and speaks to the LAMQG tonight! AND we have the Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons Solids Challenge reveal. I can’t wait to see what everyone made! Not to mention that 70 people have RSVPed for the meeting. It’s gonna be a big one!

Overwhelmed.

I’m feeling crazy busy these days.  A tad too busy, but when it’s all quilting all the time that’s keeping you that way, how can you complain??

A quick little class sample for an Improv. class that I’ll be teaching at Common Threads Studio in Pasadena.

And why am I currently so obsessed with the color combo of gray and raspberry?? I can’t get enough!

Ok back to the sewing machine I go!

Improv. class.

I always laugh at the idea of teaching an improv. class. Here in LA where so many people are actors, that usually means some semi funny off the cuff sketch comedy. But not for me! For me it’s all about quilting!

Taught the class at The Urban Craft Center these past two Sundays and it was so much fun. Forgive the lousy Iphone photos.

Lauren and Jane busy working away at blocks…

I swear I’ve been actually getting some sewing done between the teaching/guild meetings/Block Party-ing and so on. But not that much! Hope to have some real time this week.

Happy Monday to you all!

Fallish

Here in LA, we hardly feel fall show up.  But the past few days have been so so wonderful. Sunny and cool (for LA) and it’s put me in a fall mood!  After making the huge hexagon quilt I wanted to make a quick and fun little project so I put together this little stroller quilt.  It’s small – 24″ x 36″.

Stroller Quilt

It’s actually a sample for a new class that I’m going to be teaching Pasadena at The Common Thread Studio.  It’s another beginners quilting class that will happen in November.

And now – back to work on the commissioned quilt!  Should be able to show you the beginnings of things later this week!

Westside classes!

Hey LA people! Are you on the west side of town? I’m also teaching classes in Santa Monica at the Urban Craft Center! If you haven’t been there before, it’s a great space!

I’m teaching the basic “how to quilt” class over a couple of weekends this month (9/19 & 9/26) and next (10/18 & 10/25), but I’m also really excited about the improvisational piecing class that I’m teaching there in November on the 8th & 15th!
