FMQ conquered & Teacher Tuesday

I Want to be Teacher's Pet

Today was definitely a new day.   I look forward each week to Teacher Tuesday announcements on the Sewing Summit but today was such treat.  Two of my favorite bloggers are teaching a paper piecing class together: Lee of Freshly Pieced and Elizabeth of Don't Call Me Betsy.  When the class schedule goes live, I'll have my finger on the trigger!  Also big news for me; the hunt for a SLC room mate is now officially on - wish me luck!

FMQ Conquered

I was filled with excitement which is not exactly relaxed but certainly not stressed out and uptight like yesterday either.

So... FMQ was back on the table.  More accurately, two folding tables - all sprawled out. I had to climb over to get to my machine.
Aurifil is my new best friend.  I know there's a lot of give aways and promotion of the thread lately but you don't have to sell me on the stuff - it's fabulous.  A nice medium aqua worked well with the Amy Butler honeycomb backing.  I'll do a full reveal of this project once complete.
Linking up to Lee's WIP (because it's already Wednesday in other parts of the world - and morning have been rough since my work schedule change)

This weeks tally:
Completed: Dana's Row Robin
Great Progress: Asterisk Quilt
QALs were a bust this week/Zilch: NYB, Quick Curve, Zakka (although the book arrived so that kind of counts!) 


  1. Your quilting is beautiful. It looks so light and smooth - like whipped cream almost. Also like the colors in your quilt.

  2. Love the quilting and the quilt. I am a big fan of Aurifil thread as well.

  3. oh wow - love your quilting & the colored thread! Also love that you had to climb over tables to get to your machine! ;-) THAT is dedication to the craft!

  4. I love your asterisk quilt!
    And I changed the link. Thanks again!

  5. I am so excited that you started blogging! I'm enjoying every single post!

  6. Karen, the quilt looks fantastic! Great work, and you're so fast, too!
