I have been obsessed with triangles lately...I bought some really nice oak shott cottons and was hoping to use them for some home decor.

I love the fact that you can make so many things with triangles, just rearrange them!

or keep them in their pure form

Next up will be a table runner in these fabrics....in the mean time I decided to take the shirt off Gord's back to create a pillow as a birthday present for an old Ramones' fan, WIP:

50th Anniversary Quilt, one year late

It is only one year late, but it is finally done and laying down in its new home!  So anxious we were to take photos we threw the quilt over Django who was just sleeping peacefully before!

Try getting the cat to stay off a new quilt when you want to take photos! Impossible!

 better to just work around him...

The machine quilting was done by Cathy Shepherd of Eagles Wings Quilts. She quilted random tulips and a tulip in every basket, a nice touch!

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

Blogging vs Facebook/ Quilting vs Drawing....

So it has been awhile! I have not been blogging lately, mostly because I have not been quilting lately. After Forest City Comicon, I was drained of all my energy and creativity. Then winter, then Christmas, unorganized and messy sewing room, there was always an excuse to not quilt. So then I got hooked on drawing selfies, which exercised my creativity. I was reading Lynda Barry's Syllabus, Lynda Barry, a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison instructs her students to create a 2 minute drawing of themselves every class as their mark for attendance. For some reason I am a sucker for challenges and I thought I should try that every day, draw a "selfie" and post it on my Facebook page. I have over 80 of them now. I am kind of addicted to them. Here are my quilting related ones

 I am still making these selfies, but have got back into sewing groove....

 You can see below I did a clean up of my sewing room

And finally finished the top for my parents' 50th anniversary quilt, I have sent it to Cathy to do the machine quilting

I have just finished piecing my Jacquie Gering workshop quilt, horizontal

or vertical:

right now I am trending on vertical....I will let it hang on the design wall for a little while to see what I like and play with some fabric for borders....but right now, I am thinking vertical wall hanging no borders.
