This week, I have finished up two projects that were focused on playing with colour. AND I have two more that just require binding but I will tell you about those another time.
Introducing Songbird Quilter
The Eastern Shore has a great new service for quilters. Wendy Pehrsson has opened Songbird Quilter in Lawrencetown. Songbird offers longarm instruction and rental services to help people finish their quilts without the expense of purchasing a longarm. After a short orientation session, quilters can rent Wendy’s machine by the hour to complete projects at a very reasonable rates.
Improvisation and Quilting
I don’t know if it is a new trend or just something that I have recently become aware of in magazines and online articles but I have been seeing more discussions describing ‘improv quilting’ as a style. It seems to me that that it is more accurately described as a process than a style. To me, it makes more sense to think of it as a way to create, try new approaches – and mix things up a little.
