<![CDATA[Life Is'A Changing!!!!]]>Wed, 04 Jun 2014 11:39:09 GMThttp://thequilteddove.com/blog/life-isa-changingEveryone is probably waiting patiently for June's monthly design specials...  I am very excited and a little sad to announce that I will be/am relocating to Arizona. Most of my regular 'peeps' had a little bit of notice that there was a possibility of this happening; but things are happening faster than I expected...  so, I have stopped taking in quilts and I've suspended all fabric sales for the time being.  

I don't know exactly where my feet will land or how long it will be before I can resume business, but I have full intentions of reestablishing The Quilted Dove once I get settled in Arizona.  



It's going quite the adjustment not being able to sew or quilt for some undetermined period of time!  I may just have to pick up hand work to hold me over - it's portable & I'll still be able to fondle fabric *smiles*.


Hope you all will check in and keep tabs on me!

<![CDATA[Can You Believe I Was Bored!?!]]>Thu, 20 Mar 2014 13:41:21 GMThttp://thequilteddove.com/blog/can-you-believe-i-was-bored
I can't even begin to count the number of projects/UFOs I have.  Still, I managed to get tired of all them!  I decided to work on something else! 


The good news is that I actually finished it!  

In making this wall hanging, I managed to use up quite a few batik scrap.  I improved my skills in paper piecing, crazy piecing a backing, tried a new binding technique, and used the corner sleeve method for hanging. So many techniques all in one little 22" wall hanging.  The only thing I neglected to do was to embroider my label right in to the backing.

If you like this wall handing and you're interested in pattern, I found it here: "Turning Over a New Leaf" by Deb Karaski
