There are no prizes but how many quilts do you make in a week? Do you always complete a quilt each week, or does it vary? I take my quilting and other textile work as it comes, when I can I make. I am not sure I remember a week when I got quite so much done.
- Finish projects off instead of starting anew.
- Make smaller projects.
- Work in a group to get quilts finished.
- Make simple patchwork style quilts that are quick to make.
My Quilt Making Week
I started last Sunday with a possible new quilt design going up on the wall. I was amazed when by Thursday the Butterfly quilt was finished. See the front above.
In the evenings, I like to handstitch. I had had a tidy up in the sewing room and discovered 5 panels of Cathedral Window Quilting that needed some work on them, so I started on those on Tuesday and finished them on Friday.
I trimmed off the threads on another Cathedral Window Quilt and decided it was a triptych and not to sew it together. Things were going well. My answer to how many quilts do you make in a week is three quilts completed in one week.
In April I had started a knitwear design. This has taken over a month, but it is finished now. It just needs buttons. Time for a new knitting design.
Project Number 5 This Week
Finally, if I have not already exhausted you, I launched Part Two of Inspiration Travel Tunisia, this is ebook eight in the series. I am now working on Part Three. I created almost 40 new pieces of artwork for this ebook.
Artist Support Pledge
I joined Artist Support Pledge to support myself and other artists. It is the brainchild of Matthew Burrows on Instagram. Works can be sold for up to 200 pounds each. When an artist has made 1,000 pounds, they pledge to buy another artists work to the value of 200 pounds. So far I have added the following work, but any work on the website around or slightly over 200 pounds I would be willing to sell under the pledge, so if there is something you want please let me know.
LIMITED EDITION OF 100 Prints. Digital High Res Print, numbered and signed. A3 size. 100 pounds each plus p&p.
High Res Print. 35 pounds each incl. p&p in UK, for elsewhere please check.
One of my embroideries is also available at the reduced price of 200 gbp plus p&p.
