Great Quilt Show

The local quilt show put on by the Appalachian Heritage Quilter's guild was a big success. Both for the guild and for Quilter's Pantry. I am already looking forward to next year! 

After a show like that it takes me a while to settle down and get back to normal day to day life and quilting. Putting everything back where it belongs in the studio so it's set up as a store as well as a working studio.... sometimes I think I need more space. Most times I like it just the way it is. Cozy.

I have been busy these last few days quilting 4 quilts for a customer and piecing a wall hanging to have for sale. I've also started working on the pattern for another queen quilt I will be making for a gift. I have the fabrics, just need to perfect the pattern.

Also on my plate is preparing to teach another Side Saddle class for beginners. That will be coming up June 26 and 27, 2015 in Asheville, NC.
Another class will be coming up in October! 

And so... I continue quilting. Continue learning. And continue looking at quilts I'll never be making.  Could I make them? Maybe.  If I had the time to sit down and learn them. But, I have decided that certain quilts and quilting techniques are to be left for others to make. I still prefer the easier quilts. And over time, with practice I can tell that the 'easier' quilts could and at times do become more and more detailed.

With so much on my plate, it's time to leave you all with a few thoughts.... 

Til next time... 
Keep those needles stitching, 
Those ideas developing 
And those quilts... coming to Quilter's Pantry to longarm. :)
