The blog has not seen much action lately, but the sewing machine has been burning some midnight oil. I finally finished up my doll quilt for Doll Quilt Swap 7 and it has landed in it's new home with Kris. She is a great girl that always sends out the loveliest work in swaps, so I put a little extra something in her quilt. The hexagons are paper pieced and appliqued onto a whole cloth that I printed with my Print Gocco. I used a blanket stitch on my sewing machine for the applique and hand stitched the embellishments. This was the first time I have mixed printing, applique and hand embroidery in a quilt. It was just so much fun!
I have a lot lined up and will be posting on a regular basis again. I took a great class this weekend on string piecing that I can't wait to share tomorrow. I am also testing a new way to screen print in my studio. Good times! See ya, soon.
