…installed a design wall in my studio (can’t believe I’ve quilted for 16 years without one) and made some progress on my Embellishment Robin.
Welcome to my weekly blog. It’s been a very busy first week of 2014! My resolution was to interject more FUN in everything I do! This year of 2014 started on a Wednesday so I decided to release my weekly blog every Wednesday throughout the year. I am sure you will see how different each week of my life is…very unpredictable.
I’ve started this year off with creating and installing a design wall in my sewing studio. (Special thanks to my hubby!) We started with foil faced foam insulation, 1″ thick. Rob cut it to length with a box cutter. I covered it with batting and grey flannel. I stretched the fabric around the batting and secured it with Duct Tape. After finding the studs in the wall, we anchored the boards with a 2″ washer and really long screws. I think we used 6 all together.
Here is a photo of my hubby cutting the foam insulation:
Here is the finished wall completely installed in one afternoon!
I also worked on my Embellishment Robin. These are the triangle setting pieces I worked on at our quilting get away in November.
Here is what it looks like now…..
The time flew by as I couched fibers, sewed on ribbons and buttons and even some pearls! I am using the book Elegant Stitches by Judith Baker Montano and teaching myself decorative stitches and applying beads here and there.
Now to make it into a quilt……stay tuned………until next time……have FUN quilting!
