Traveling, Teaching, Talking

That's what I've been doing lately and having a ball. I love talking about quilts and teaching quilting is about the best thing ever. The only disadvantage is that it takes me away from my sewing machine. I have a stack of quilts that are basted and ready to quilt. I'm hoping to get to them soon!This is the "Leftovers" quilt top. I don't think I shared the finished top. It's made from leftover strip piecing that was laying around taunting me. The background is that fabulous Kona Pomegranate. As much as I love that color, my son said it looks like Barney threw up all over it. I hate to quibble, but Barney was purple, not pink.

Nevertheless, it's in that stack of basted quilts. I had to clean and organize the studio when I got home. How can chaos happen when I'm not here? Well, maybe it was that way before I left. Well, the studio is clean, organized and I'm ready to start quilting.

Yipppeeeee!
