Chronicles from our Sunday Sewist: Jenn
Sundays are a day when our quilty regulars gather in the shop. I never cease to be amazed and inspired by this gang:
- Nicole brought in her first quilt and she had finally finished the top. It’s based on a photo she saw in Technology Weekly magazine of an Intel processor, which you can read all about over here. While in the shop Nicole also made a cover for her bike seat, started copying a pattern for a men’s jacket and worked on her maxi-dress. Can someone say p.r.o.d.u.c.t.i.v.e?
- Jacquie worked on the layout of her second New Wave quilt. Choosing and placing fabrics is often the most daunting- yet funnest part of the whole quilting process. Despite an impeccable eye of color and pattern, Jacquie is still unsure of the order of her pieces. To Be Continued….
- Jessica (our adopted American) quilted her Elvis baby quilt in no time at all. Even Stephanie (our former right hand/left brain gal) popped by to serger up a baby sleep sack for her nephew.
I love Sundays when the shop is full. It’s always fun to see what other people are working on, to discuss the work with them. This group is so very clever (between us on Sunday there were five Master’s degrees and two PhD’s and a couple more degrees in progress), and funny and inspiring. I feel like I should be the “expert” in the shop, but the truth is, I still have so much to learn.
Things I got to check off my list this week: Threading the serger! And mass producing some hand sewn blocks for my Bitty Block Committee swap on Flickr.
So where have you found inspiration this week?
