Where I’ve Been and Where I’m Going

Hello Everyone!  Long time no see.  The summer went by swiftly and we sure kept busy!

There were fairy gardens made

 

Wizarding wands magicked

I attended the Art Quilt Symposium in Columbus, OH

I also attended SewPro in Chicago and met Tula Pink and Pat Sloan and many other wonderful members of the quilting industry.

Lucas took a whirl at the sewing machine for the first time and made himself a pillow.

And he picked out fabrics for me to make him his own quilt.  The first of my three children to receive a handmade quilt from me.  I also made a matching toothfairy pillow that also works as a pillow for Rory.

There were also trips to see family and Harry Potter; visits to museums and beaches; days lounging at the pool or playing video games.  Such a fun filled summer.

Now that the kids are back to school, its back to work for me.  Guess what I’m doing?

A QUILT ALONG!!!!!

Yuppers.  I have purchased (as have many others) the Fandango Quilt Kit featuring Tula Pink fabrics.  I drooled over the quilt when I saw pictures of it at Quilt Market.  It was released recently and I thought I would do Tula Tuesdays here and on Instagram so that those of us who are making this piece have somewhere to share our journey.

I will not be posting directions for the pattern.  You must buy the kit for all that.  Please do and follow along.  It’s going to be a great time!!!

See you soon.

Lovingly,

Lissa

    I am in a different QAL that is one of Tula’s quilts too. The city sampler. I’ve always wanted to make it. I am woefully behind and need to catch up. I can’t wait to see your progress with this quilt.
