I call it Woven

The Pink one has been stolen.  Very Sad : (
I have recently found the nicest and very easy Table Runner pattern, by Ursula Riegel. I call it: Woven Table-Runner, because it appears as if it is woven fabrics.  Ursula has given me permission to use her pattern to teach to those who sew.  Here is a photo of the Table-Runners I have made. 

I am also now doing one with the U of A fabrics, and another will be made with Dallas Cowboys fabrics; but, I cannot forget his truly favorites "New England -any of the sports" Patriots, Bruins, Celtics, Red Sox.
I figure when Bill is watching one of his favorite teams I will put that team on the coffee table.

Zentangles in Grand Rapids MI

Good Morning to all,

It is fast approaching, and I am looking forward to the American Quilters Society show in Grand Rapids, MI. 
I will be teaching 2 Zentangle classes, one will be an introduction to the Zentangle Method, the other is a Beyond the Basics class and we will be working with different mediums.  Should be a fun and productive class for all the participants. 
Introducing 3-Z tiles and Paired with Bijou tiles.  Some on white, some on black.

August will bring a new adventure for me.  I have been asked to teach at American Quilters Society (AQS) in Grand Rapids, MI.  I will teach two Zentangle Classes.  Very Excited to share the Zentangle Method with Quilters, Artist, and those who don't call themselves "Artist" will find that with just "One Stroke at a Time" with a pencil and pen, magic happens.

Staggered Bargello 

I am taking the Sulky Certified Teacher course online.  I started in May and it ends the end of July. The bargello technique here is called Staggered, design by Carol Ingram National Instructor for Sulky.  I had so much fun doing the wallhanging and today I finished the project with this cool silhouette. I had to go on Amazon and order the laser cut fusible applique as the one the instructor wanted us to use was no longer available from the manufacturer, so I thought this one was good and fits the grassy into water and sky theme.



So then while I was waiting to get the silhouette applique I had ordered I decided that I loved the poinsettia fabric I bought a couple of years ago and made a tablerunner.   Here is the result.
