Happy Monday... Glamming it up!

Hey Everyone,

I hope you had an awesome weekend... I was a tad busy to say the least. I got to work on, and almost finish, this awesome quilt:

Oh but let me start at the beginning.... Thursday at lunch time I picked up this awesome lady:

Yes, that is Latifah Saafir, The Quilt Engineer. This is the Mole Hills Quilt which she is releasing as a pattern in the next week or so. Latifah came and spoke to The Silicon Valley Modern Quilt Guild on Thursday night at the shop. She showed all kinds of awesome quilts. Here are a couple more:

Here is another version of the Mole Hills Quilt out of Cotton + Steel. Quilts with cute shoes :) A good time was had by all at the meeting and we didn't get home until late! Then I got up at a quarter to 5 on Friday and went to take this class:

In the South Bay. Normally I do not do my best work in class because it is a little overwhelming for me to be in a big group of people when I am trying to be creative so I am super proud of myself that I got all but 2 rows of my Glam Clam finished. I am hoping to have the it finished by the weekend.

By @jennaquilts  Started in class Saturday. Quilted and bound by lunch on Sunday... Yep, she's amazing!
Then Saturday we had the Huckleberry Quilt Class at the shop. I have pictures but they are still on my camera. So here is a picture of my friend Jennifer's Quilt all done.Yes, quilted and bound too... she started it Saturday in class and it was done by Sunday lunch time.

Then we rushed Latifah to the Airport... then I was supposed to go to a concert Saturday night. That didn't happen. I got home and promptly fell asleep. Oh well.... Then yesterday we had church friends over for dinner. So I need to go to work to get a break...

Today I am photographing the new collection that came in while I was out on Friday. Cleta by Art Gallery... I am totally in love with this print in person:


Who doesn't love bicycle trees?

Talk soon :)

  1. I really like the quilt made with the cotton and steel fabric collection. I really like the fabric, but just can't seem to come up with an idea for a quilt using this collection. Nice to see someone making a great quilt with this line.

  4. I am a bit jealous of the glam clam! I heard her talk about it on quilt radio and would have loved to take the class. Too bad I'm on the other side of the country!
