Some random insights from her in class:
-- I really need to work on consistent stitch length. I like small stitches but not microscopic.
-- When asked if she ever ripped out she said “yes….a lot!”
-- She buries thread tails on show quilts using self-threading needles from Spiral Eye Needle Company.
-- She frequently likes to extend the design from the center of the quilt into the border, or beyond.
-- She is meticulous. She showed us a small piece she has submitted for inclusion to a juried show. If it’s accepted, she will have to remove the binding and trim off ¼ inch so that it meets the show’s criteria.
...and I've never outgrown the habit of chasing rainbows. We had a shower last week that ended in a simultaneous mixture of rain and sunshine, so out I went with the camera.
