Quilt top assembled

19 03 2013

I finished assembling the quilt top. Here is is: DSC_0084

I’m thinking that I probably still want some border around the entire quilt, instead of just binding it. I’ve also begun to wonder if I might want prairie points. No matter what the circumstances, I do intend to have it at the longarm quilter by the end of the week. It’s currently 80″X110″. That’s another reason I want to add the border. I’m hoping to get the width up to …… 90 or even 100″.

I like the “piano keys” striped border here: http://pamcave.blogspot.com/2009/05/african-wedding-quilt.html

I think It would be nice to have the quilt come down over the sides of the bed, without having the blocks hanging down, out of site. Just a thought. More later.

Oh my, I haven’t written in a month! Things have been busy. Here are some pictures of a sewing class I did in my Roseneath studio. It was a kids summer class, and we will be doing it again.

Learn to Weave in a Week

2 06 2007

Monday, a new class begins at the Visual Art Center of Richmond. It is my Learn to Weave in a Week class. We will meet mornings M-F and dress the looms, and weave off a nice project. If you are interested, check out my classes in the list of fiber classes for adults at http://www.visarts.org
I am also teaching kids to embroider, weave, tie-dye, and spin yarn. So you can enjoy the fiber arts, and sign your tween or teen to do the same.
If you are looking for sewing classes, I have a class upcoming June 18 from 1-4 pm at my own studio at Roseneath. This is for students 11-16. Bring your own machine, or use mine. e-mail me for more information.
Spots are still available at the Glen Allen studio for weavers. We meet on Sunday afternoons from 1:30 – 4 pm.
I accept spinning students during this time also. It is a group class, so you will also meet other weavers and spinners.
If you don’t see what you are looking for, you can e-mail me, or check out my website at
