Art Journey with a Quilty Voice:
I here Voices. The Voices tell me to cut up Fabric. Good Fabric. Into small pieces. Small interesting pieces.
Then the Voices tell me to put them back together again. In interesting ways.
.... I must Obey ....

Tandem Quilting in my new Studio Set Up

Spent about five hours today quilting with my new set up. Can't believe I was able to do anything before! Did I get any chores done around the house? No! With the exceptions of a few basics, clean dishes and laundry

I realized that I could practice quilting while laying out my new quilt top, because I really need to lay everything out before trying to piece it all together. And, I was just itching to start quilting with my new set up. So... for now, I work in tandem!

(BTW, I have all of this posted on my FaceBook account, but I haven't figured out how to link to two so I don't have to post twice)

Tucker insisted on laying on the quilt while I was basting!

Quilting with my new set up. Can't believe I was able to quilt before! This is so much easier to work with

Maybe a quilt is emerging here?

My Table Arrives!

My table arrived even with our severe weather!

The Box is opened!

All the parts are out and ready to assemble

My new room set up...

...and the journey of my new quilt begins on my new set up...

Weather delays shipment

Having some tornado watches today and have been waiting for my table to arrive today ... FedEx reports that the arrival of my table may be delayed... "IMPORTANT! Inclement weather conditions at Memphis hub may cause some service delays and disruptions within the U.S. today."
