I have an exciting announcement! Faye and Nora have set up a new Facebook Group for us: Quilting with LKQ (Lori Kennedy Quilts)!
Please join us right now and say hello!
This is in addition to–not in place of The Inbox Jaunt (soon to be Lori Kennedy Quilts).
The advantage to adding a group–we can share photos!
We can meet each other!
So let’s start today!
We’d LOVE to see–what’s under YOUR needle!
UNDER MY NEEDLE
I’m still working small–playing with Melissa Averinos’s Making Faces in Fabric!
Melissa is a talented quilter and prolific artist. She does painted imaginative and colorful pet portraits like the ones of Ruby and Roxie. She also designs fabric, (even leggings) and so much more!
Her book walks you through a step-by-step process to first draw, then appliqué faces. (I still need a LOT of practice) Of course, I felt compelled to do it the free motion way….
Free motioning face-with continuous line–creates a unique challenge. Each of the features has to be connected (so you don’t have to knot off) and those extra lines can be pesky-distorting a face or making a mouth look like a mustache!
What about YOU?
Do YOU have any quilt challenges?
What’s under YOUR needle?
We’d LOVE to hear!
