My Quip - Where Is That Quilting Thread? - Update

Good Day,

Well the work continues on preparing our portfolio for Evolution for MQX East 2012 in April in Providence. All quilts and wall hangings have been chosen. We have to make sure that all quilts are included with a hanging sleeve and a Brunhammer Smith label. Next comes the packaging and shipping.

Blue Diamonds has been completed and is ready for shipping to Providence, Rhode Island for competition at MQX East 2012.

Tampa Lightning has been accepted as entry to MQS 2012 (aka Machine Quilters Showcase 2012) this coming May at the Overland Park Convention Center in Kansas. Check back for our updates at Quilts SB.

Our Mondrian I is still in the process of being quilted. We are considering entering this one to HMQS 2012 show in Salt Lake City.

We have just received new commissions to create a King-size quilt - Blue Memories, and a Queen-size quilt – S’s Memories. Interesting ideas and we will be beginning that work shortly. The draft designs for Blue Memories have been completed.

The Amulet is waiting on the back of a chair for the final modifications to the top.

All 15 planets have been constructed for Astro-Physics. Now next, the placement in the overall design.

The top for Joseph’s Coat has been completed. We are really pleased with design result.

176 blocks have been created for Joseph’s Ladder Pants and the design arrangement is currently on the pin-up wall.

And fabric has arrived for the make-up of a new quilt for Kumquat.

You would think that we were a wee bit busy? One would know that this obsession has got to them when you start dreaming of quilt design and fabric combination in the couple of hours that one sleeps at night.

Keep abreast of all our updates. I have added a “Follow By Email” capability at the bottom right of each posting under The Grid. You can also become a Follower of Quilts SB. Click on the “Join this site” in the right-hand column to follow Quilts SB.

I’ve added another means to follow the images of our quilt creations via Pinterest. Also check out our new Quilts SB Page on Facebook. Link over to Quilts SB and become a Fan, albeit “Like” us.

Check out my new experimental format of my Blog, Quilts SB Test. Certainly would appreciate your feedback.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

If you have any questions and/or comments please feel free to get in touch with me via Email Quilts SB.

I'm not sure if I have missed any, but enjoy,

Jim and Andy
