Irena Bluhm Guest of Hayward Piecemakers Quilt Guild

Tonight the Hayward Piecemakers had the pleasure of hosting Irena Bluhm for a trunk show at the Hayward Wesleyan Church. What an amazing quilter! Talented, courageous, and fearless. And the biggest thing is she is self taught. She had an idea and ran with it. I admire her greatly. Tomorrow she teaches two classes on her coloring techniques. Lots of fun and lots of creativity.

Big Birches In Hayward

The two quilted panels for the permanent exhibit for the Weiss Library in Hayward is totally finished. They will be hanging at the Piecemakers Quilt Show this weekend before being dedicated and hung at the library. The quilt show is held at the Wesleyan Church 10655 Nyman Ave, Hayward, WI 54843. Show hours are July 24th and 25th 10-4 both days.

The journey for this quilt was fun, and I enjoyed working on it with quilting friends that were excited about the project. Thank you Leslie, Jean and Deb.

Come see us at the show.

Stamp Carving

Today's meeting with the Wild Threads Machine Quilting Group was fun and laid back. We had a small group today with the busy summer many had to miss the meeting. Those that made it go to carve stamps using lino cutters and safety cut rubber. The first picture is of stamps I've carved in the past and a few small ones I cut today. I'm loving the little mouse and bunny. They would be perfect for label making for my art quilts.

Wild Threads Challenge 2015

Here is my teaser for the Wild Threads Macro Leaf Challenge 2015.

The leaf printed on paper is from a leaf my guy gave me last year in the fall. Quirky but appreciated gift.

The pile of fabrics are synthetics that I bought this past winter from a friend, and the larger hand dyed fabric is from one of my winter snow dye batches using orange and pale blue dyes.

That's all you get until after I start stitching and layering.
