For the last couple of days I have been working on a secret quilt project and finally finished it today. I won’t get to share it until May! I still have several other things going on but I decided I needed a little break…..quilting just for fun! Are you tired of winter?
I know I am! I pulled out some of my batiks from my Island Batik scrap stash and my AccuQuilt GO! dies and started to play.
I am using the AccuQuilt GO! 8″ Qube Angles Companion Set which has a die for half-square rectangles.
It took no time at all to make up some blocks. I know some people don’t care to sew with batiks, I never have any problem.
I use Schmetz Microtex 80/12 needles most of the time. I usually buy them up when Joanns has a 50% sale on notions.
Some of the batiks were in the little 5″ strip packs that I received in my Island Batik Ambassador box. Can you tell I love bright colors!
Lighting in my quilt studio
When Builder Bob designed my studio for me, he made sure to put in plenty of lights. There are still times when I need more lighting. I took the photos for this post last night around 7:30 pm when it was pitch dark outside. I have two umbrella lights that I use. Notice the step ladder, that is left out and used all the time. I also like that I can move my cutting table around and of course my sliding design wall.
Last year I took part in the Quilt Qwazy Queens blog hop and showed quite a few photos of my quilt studio. It is my happy place
