Studio Time

September was busy and I'm settling into a studio rhythm. Early last month I attended the Holly Girls Quilt retreat as I do every fall. While there, I designed and prepared the last two strips of my Susan McCord inspired strip quilt.

After basting the applique for stitching later, I pulled out my Oakshott scraps and made some tiny little basket blocks.

As I go through my home sewing area and deciding what to take to the new studio, I am finding lots of treasures like this stash of leftover 2" stars from my Stardust quilt that is on the cover of my book. I am now feeling the need to put them together in another quilt.

The downtown studio has no computer or distractions of home and I am enjoying a bit of focused sewing time there each day. Look at that light!!!

After school sewing clubs on Mondays and Tuesdays are well underway. We are having a lot of fun sewing and making projects.  

I'm also ready for hosting quilting workshops in the studio. Let me know if you and your friends are interested.
