No, I'm not depressed - my quilts just seem to be singing the blues lately. In what can only be described as "quilting ADD", multiple projects are always on the go. Yesterday I woke up with an overwhelming urge to sew silk, so I drafted a new design out in EQ7 and have the first block completed.
The navy silk jacquard is a recent addition to the stash and was begging to be sewn. Working with silk is very rewarding, but slow. I am delighted with how easily the Bernina handles this tricky fabric. A microtex size nine needle as well as a finer thread are being used in the piecing and silk thread will be used to quilt. I am excited about the cool way these blocks will set together :)
In another corner are sample blocks for the Meadow Song workshop for Fibre Arts Festival in October. These will be stitched using a variety of machine appliqué techniques, including blanket, satin, blind and decorative stitching
