EZ quilting demo

Don't mess with Chicks with rotary cutters!  hehe.. Michele helped me with my trunk show at Simplicity Ez Quilting. So here is my dress too! it was so comfortable and cute. It was freezing int eh Convention center, so I had to stay under sweater wrap!

My trunk Show/Demo was on my process,  finding your inspiration, using up what you have and trying new things.  Here I am showing a bag,    (above)  made from a simplicity pattern, using my leftover scraps from the quilt I made for Newcastle Fabrics (below) 


I was also talking about PLAYING with our tools, Here is used Darlene Zimmerman's Hexagon template from easy quilting. This was the Shirtings from Newcastle fabrics as well... I just love how that quilt turned out. Great fabrics!
How making something from nothing can lead you in your search to creative inspiration... Making, Looking at what you've made, and finding inspiration in front of you, and letting it unfold into your own unique creations.

My Mother will be happy to see this quilt. Here's your quilt Mom!

Thank you Michele Muska, Darlene Zimmerman, Mimi Shimp for hosting me in your booth!

By the way...
All is well with my hubby and Boo in NYC. They are fortunate to have POWER, and lucky for Boo, her school does NOT have power... so no school. Well, and no subway either, so it makes it hard to get downtown! Now, just hoping they get Laguardia open ASAP so I can fly home Friday...  Out at our house on Long island we had five trees down around our house, and thankfully none hit our house. so it means, our wood pile will be stocked.

Feeling very grateful tonight!

  6. Glad to hear your hubby and Boo are ok and the house was missed by the trees! Looks like you are having just the best time! I love the big yellow star quilt in the third picture. I saw Laguardia on the news last evening. First they have to get rid of all the water on the runways and then pick up all the debris - tough job. I will be crossing my fingers that you can get home on Friday.

  22. Wowee! You look like you had such a great adventure. Those quilts are so gorgeous and inspiring. I really need to go make some fabric again. I just finished a scrappy log cabin quilt top (sewing frantically in case the power went out) and have a lot of scraps all sorted. I'm glad the family is safe and warm.

Glad to hear your family are ok at home and your houses are still ok and there, saw it on the news over here and felt so sorry for everybody, cannot imagine what it must have been like to witness that. Hope you get home on friday!
