I spent some time getting up close and personal with Ms Mary Ruth (aka my #juki ) this afternoon. This is a very old block from my first workshop with @dsquilts many years ago. I think we were both around 25, couldn't have been a day over 27. Or maybe I'm too old to remember that detail correctly.

Having so much fun making pompoms with @betz_white 's new Llama Loom! Everything in my studio should be as cute as this little guy from now on! #llamalloom

Another vintage favorite from my collection of #vintagepeopleonquilts . Unknown year, but I love how it feels a bit like an unplanned stop to a beach.

Day 53 of #100daysofthreaddrawing I could be completely addicted to #freemotion practice on orphan blocks now... Here's the result of first ESS'ing (see previous post) then quilting. Granted my test was small, but I like the way it anchors everything! 💐

A leftover quilt block that I'm using for #freemotion practice. Trying something new- ditching every seam first (ESS- every stinkin' seam). Many quilters swear by this to make the quilting show nicely and keep the surface nice and smooth. In this photo I've finished the ditching with @aurifilthread 50 weight. Now to plan the quilting. I'll report back. My question- do you ESS?? Thoughts?? ⭐️ 💐
