Thanks everybody. I’m really excited to get a Hub of the Day! I can not consider it. A quilt is a work of art, and a label is a needed part of the artwork. The San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles in California also shows conventional and modern quilts. There may be free admission to the museum on the first Friday of each month, as part of the San Jose Artwork Walk. Wow. These are awesome. I prefer to work on wall hanging quilts…that’s the smallest I can go. Beautiful lens. Great data. Congratulations on LOTD.
Thanks peachpurple. Even in case you don’t make your personal quilts, you will need to document no matter paintings you do make, and quilts and art work which have been handed all the way down to you. No papers right here…only a good tracing line and operating stitches. It permits me to press the seams to at least one side, which keeps the possibilities for longarm quilting countless. I never know when I would need to ditch stitch someplace, and a pressed open seam makes that a total PIA! I am glad to announce I’ll be participating in a little bit Christmas in July sew along with Sew Lux Fabric. So glad that your back to your artistic self. A mental relaxation is sometimes a very good thing. The sneak peek appears to be like superb.

She was right, the sky was full of stars and so they were stunning and ideal simply as the night was!
