My finished project from SEW WHAT Guild



I have promised for a very long time to publish the photo from my Fat Quarter exchange on SEW WHAT.

My exchange partner was Karen Gass.

Here is the before.....................................................and the after!

The planning was a community effort by my co-workers at It's A Stitch (my REAL job).

The implementing was challenging. However, I arose to the occasion and after snipping cutting and otherwise re-arranging the piece a million times...the decision was made to make QUILT DIVA just what she is...quirky and not so "put together" as it were.

Hope you enjoy her as much as I did in making the piece.

After our SEW WHAT BLOG TOUR we need to set that up...I'll do the planning and co-coordinating this time. ) D

Thanks Karen! This was SEW much fun.

Thanks foxaz. This was really a very fun project. And challenging in that only 2 of the motiffs were really usable. But not being one to be deterred...It finally "fell into place".

Just LOVE your "Quilt Diva"!!! My "play" job is in a quilt shop, too. I work 1-2 days a week and teach a couple of classes a month.

Great Blog!

Hey Kim, Where do you work? Does your shop have a website? What sort of classes do you teach????

I "play" at What's Your Stitch 'N Stuff in Virginia Beach, VA.

I've actually cut my hours back to 1 day a week because I've been so busy with all my online shops.

If you click on classes and scroll down, you'll see 2 that I'm teaching this quarter (Kim Brinsfield).

I'm currently teaching "Grandmother's Flower Garden" and "Trio Strip Quilt" (that's basically for beginner's).

I also teach the Buggy Barn "Crazy" method, paper-piecing, and anything else that strikes my fancy at the time.

I actually finally finished the binding on my Grandmother's Flower Garden and will be posting a pic on my blog later today.

I also launched a new blog today to teach a variety of sewing/stitching techniques and how to use notions and tools.
