Busy in the studio

I've actually been sewing lately. The summer heat hit with a vengeance this week and it's just easier to stay in the air conditioned house sewing. I don't have any photos yet, but I promise I have been working. I'll try to get some photos posted tomorrow.

Today I finished a top that I started at our guild's Quilters' Day Out in May. Earlier this week I finished the top I started in the Sunflower class we took with Judy Heyward. On Tuesday our mini-group, the Ducks, had a demo on the construction of an origami bag and I made one of those this week. Also today I quilted a table runner that I made in a piecing class with Karen. I'm not a precise piecer and Karen offered to give me a couple of lessons to improve my piecing technique. It's amazing how much better things look when you take your time and do it right!

Early today a group of us met at Sew n' Sew fabrics for their annual $1 fat quarter sale. Sew n' Sew is in a really small building and it's tight quarters on a normal day. Today is was shoulder to shoulder quilters pawing through the boxes of fat quarters. I didn't really need anything and just went along to join in the fun.

Congratulations on all that you've gotten done, Corky. I'm looking forward to seeing your sunflower. As you know, I DID buy fat quarters yesterday and I even have a project in mind for the bundle I got.
