Geta's Quilting Studio

I am constantly seeking new ideas, inspiration and new techinques, especially those beyond my current abilities. I want to stretch myself and do things which will improve my skills. There is one person that is amazing to see, the quality of her work, and the speed at which her WIPs change to finished projects is jaw dropping! Who am I talking about? Geta! Check out her blog - every post is an inspiration! She also has a giveaway to sign up for! What fun, who doesn't love a beautiful gift? Just seeing her work, makes me want to get busy!

quilting area coming together, participating quilters increasing

I have not accomplished much lately, there have been ALOT of health issues in our family. I told you about Isa, who we learned has type 1 diabetes. Following that hospital stay was 2 emergencies with Mom, bad cold/flu for son-in-law and I, hubby came down with something, daughter and sister both had kidney stones, and I had a work injury.

But, all are doing better now, and my dear hubby is finishing up my storage cabinet/pressing table. This will slide under my cutting table. And so, soon I may have a space that will be functional to hold everything I need to work on the quilt! Yeah!

Besides the One Couch Quilt, I have several other quilts which will need done about the same time as the Staff Quilt Show that I am making the One Couch Quilt for - so I have my work cut out for me!

Our Staff Show is now up to 17 possible quilters joining us!
