100 days project for quilters


My daily leaf print project is underway. Here is week one. I think I will do a different color theme each week. It’s quite fun and I’m enjoying the interaction with others doing the same 100 days on Facebook. One is doing a surface design each day, one free motion quilting a design a day out of a couple of adult coloring books, a couple people are improv piecing a block a day. A few are simply taking time each day to work on a project and showing the progress. 

I’m also learning from them. One person blew my mind when she said she changes thread a lot on her sit down long arm (of which I have and threading the sucker can be a pain). She cuts the thread on the old spool near the spool itself and leaves the rest of the thread still on the machine. Then puts on a new spool, ties the old thread to the new and just pulls it through. Now why didn’t I think of that! Brilliant! You really should join our group, if only to see what people are doing.



I’m also starting a Raven. Here is all the feathers in the nest.


And another in the cutting stage.

What are you up to this week?
