Illuminate!

"Illuminate" is the theme for a challenge group that I belong to, consisting of 10 artists that work in various media.  The previous theme had been "element" but time got away from me before I was able to explore that challenge theme. "THE FIRE WITHIN", my submission for the "illuminate" challenge addresses both themes. The element of fire is so essential to life on this earth. From the fire comes a light that can illuminate the world, removing darkness and fear.

He Loves Me! A Hearts and More Class at Sturbridge Quilting and Sewing Center

He Loves Me! Class sample by Gina
 
Don't you just love the color combination that Gina Zeleznok chose to use for her "He Loves Me!" class sample? Gina opted to machine embroider the words, "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" on her computerized sewing machine prior to quilting an all over pattern on the quilt background using her long arm machine.  After quilting, Gina cut and fused the applique' shapes using my Hearts and More templates.

Did you damage the edge of your Acrylic Template?

It is easy to gouge the edge of your Hearts and More or Leaves Galore templates when you are cutting around the inside curves.  The secret to cutting the inside curves is to use a sharp 28mm rotary cutter and blade.  There are times when I still nick the edge of my template with my blade, and cut a sliver from the edge of the acrylic.  This sliver will catch your blade every time you try to cut around that spot.

Hearts and More, Debut October 25th!

The new Hearts and More templates will be unveiled on October 25 at Quilt Market in Houston. On Friday, October 25, I am holding a Schoolhouse session to show my latest templates, and what they can do. Meanwhile, I want to give you a little preview of the quilts I have made over the past three weeks using the Hearts and More templates. They are not all finished, and I am under the gun to get them done in time for Houston, so this will be a short post, so I can get back to sewing!
