My Whole Cloth Plan

I might have bitten off more than I can chew on this first whole cloth on my domestic machine.  Since this is the first time quilting on my domestic, I have decided to hold off on doing feathers.  I have also decided it would be in my best interest to mark the whole design…. minus the stippling.

While my  new BERNINA is wonderful… I am not so sure I can successfully quilt on it as I have on my A1.  Wish me luck… I am waiting on my new Craftoptic glasses before I do any quilting.  If you haven’t seen these glasses and have any neck or back issues, you would be doing yourself a favor by checking into them…. www.craftoptics.com

School Starts next Week!!!

No, I am not excited at all!!  I have had a nice summer of spending time with the kids swimming, golfing, and going to the beach BUT I am ready to get to work.  This summer was a transitional summer…. that’s what I’m calling it.  I have stopped doing quilts for customers and am focusing my energy on teaching, patterns, book proposals, working with BERNINA as an ambassador and creating my own quilts.

It was a little difficult going from physically doing quilts all day to sitting at a computer or my sewing machine.  I am now ready to hit the ground running.  So many ideas…. will there be enough time….. I sure hope so!

My quilt, Crown Jewels, will be making the trip to Houston!  This will be my second whole cloth that has been accepted.  I am honored!

Crown Jewels I will also be there and hope to see many of you!  I will be working in the Urban Elementz booth selling my rulers and DVD’s!  As soon as I get a booth number I’ll post it here.

I will be posting a whole cloth challenge update on Wednesday.   I will post all of the pictures I have received all in one place.  They are spectacular!  I will also post where I am in my challenge.  There is still time… send me those pics!  lisahcalle@me.com

Happy Quilting!
