A Mystery Quilt, sort of

Quilted Whispers Cat Notecards

Quilted Whispers
Cat Notecards

The quilt I’m working on right now is a mystery. It’s not really a “mystery quilt” per se, but I’m keeping it a secret until it’s complete, in June, 2006. However, hints are available if you know where to look. (Psst! Some pictures in recent posts show bits of the quilt during quilting!) I’ll tell you this much: it’s an anniversary quilt for someone in my family, and I’ve begun photographing parts of it as it’s completed to create a very special collection of notecards and art prints called Quilted Whispers.

To see the first Quilted Whispers notecards featuring motifs from this quilt, go to The Quilt Shop at DreamWeaver’s Quilts. Net proceeds from the sale of items featuring artwork from this quilt will be donated to the ALS Association, to help in finding a cure for Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Visit the Mystery Quilt page for more information about the quilt, and a very special Contest coming soon!

The shirt that goes Beyond

Beyond Shirt

A little side note about one of the shirts at The Quilt Shop! The design for the Quilting Beyond T-Shirt comes from one of my most popular quilting workshops: Machine Quilting~Beyond the Basics. When students are ready to go “Beyond the Basics” in machine quilting, we do this class. I teach students the more advanced machine quilting techniques, like double stitching, stippling and quilting feather designs. So, I ask you, is your quilting basic or “Beyond?” Get the shirt!
