Whatcha up to today?

Hi everyone! It is Thursday! Are you preparing some wonderful plans for the weekend? So tell me, whatcha doing today? Me? I'm sewing...what else do I do?! Not much. Yesterday I cleaned the house, felt good to stop and vacuum and dust and just straighten up a bit. The sun was shining yesterday so that helped a whole lot with energy levels!!
If you have noticed I posted a link to Annie's Online Classes. I will be doing this from time to time. I personally know the teacher of the applique class, and she is the editor of Quilter's World, so click on the link and go take a wonderful class at home on machine applique! Carolyn Vagts is a wonderful person and very talented!! She is the one that pushed me further in this wonderful world of quilting! Thank you Carolyn!!
I have a few more of these diamonds to piece today and then the quilt body begins to take shape...
Love this!! What do you think?

Happy Sewing!!


  1. I love the 3D illusion to this block,but I stink at paper piecing, lol!
    Congratulations on all the quilts that are getting accepted into magazines. Be proud!

  2. Hi Vic!! It took me a good while to figure out what I was doing wrong with this paper piecing block, once I figured it out, then I found Carol Doak's book all went well!! And actually I'm "power sewing" the blocks together!!! They turning out absolutely beautiful!! Watch for this quilt in Quilter's World magazine next year. I believe it is going in the summer issue or fall, can't remember at the moment, but I will be sure to post about it! Have a wonderful day! Happy Sewing!
