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.

Class Sample

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!

    I’m currently working on a quilt that’s green, purple and grey so I totally understand the obsession! The class sample is gorgeous… I love the muted colours.

    Love your sample quilt! And I’m with you on the gray and raspberry. The quilt back I just made is two shades of gray with a raspberry strip!

    Anyway, love this one you made… especially with the straight line quilting!

    I LOVE the teenie tiny little quilting! I need to do something quicker, smaller, and less complicated to try some of that thin line stitching out on.

    OMG – I’m OBSESSED with that combo too! Have been blogging about it and am still stewing over fabric to buy and what quilt to make. Yay!

    Great color combination! More subtle than pink and black. Love it!

    Because grey and raspberry is a beautiful color combination!

    Love the gray and raspberry, but I have to admit that I’m loving gray with just about any color right now. That is a wonderful little guilt!

    Gorgeous! Grey and anything is just perfect. And I love your quilting. What patience.

    What a pretty quilt. Looks like a fun project. Is that thicker than normal thread you used for the quilting?

      Hi Carol! It’s the usual 100% cotton quilting thread that I always use. Coats & Clark. My machine likes it fine so I use it regularly.
