Making up some mysteries

My personal quilting has taken a backseat to my career lately. I am a freelance technical communicator, and I fit my quilting business in around deadlines from my "day job". It's been a blessing to be busy in the last few months, but the downside of all that wonderful writing work is I haven't taken a lot of time to make my own quilts.

There are always a few things that sneak in, though. Cotton Cuts has been a real time saver for me, and I'm loving their projects. Visit their website at Cotton Cuts and you will see what I mean. They offer pre-cut quilt kits and puzzle mystery programs. For me, it's just the Zen of piecing the blocks together and not having to take the time to choose colors or cut fabric. This winter I participated in a quick winter mystery to make a table runner, and I love it. This project hasn't made it to the longarm yet, but the top is done and it's in the queue.

In addition to that little top, I'm keeping up with Gudrun Erla of GE Designs. I have participated in all her mystery blocks of the month, and her latest London Calling is no exception. I recently took a weekend to retreat with sewing friends and was able to catch up on a few of those blocks. I'll post pictures when I get caught up.

Customer quilts have also come and gone since I last posted. Keep them coming! My other job may be taking more of my time, but I am still able to quilt for customers. Give me a call when you need something longarmed!
