I just got my 500 meters of cotton from testfabrics!!!! That was a chore in its self with the shipping and customs.... but its here! I was down to my last 50 mts. I hope that I can find somewhere here that makes 100% cotton, but its not easy! Maybe Ill have to go back to India!
I have been starting to dye for my 2 weeks with Nancy Crow in Sept. I can see what colors I like to dye.... I need to round out my collection! I will see hoe much it costs to ship it other wise Ill have to pay for over weight luggage!!!

This is pretty much how we've been feeling of late! Its 99 degrees with 98 humidity! It does cool down to a lovely 80 at night!?

Its tough to work in my studio, I have no air con and I get the morning sun in there. I find myself getting up earlier and earlier so I can get some work done!

I have had to delete a few photos from my blog because they are of quilts I would like to enter in a couple of shows.
I got an email from one show that said if they google my name and the name of the quilt and it comes up then it will be disqualified!!!! So I guess I wont be posting some of my new works.... hummm, that's kind of a drag, I like sharing and getting every ones in put!

Test Two!

Here I added some fusing.... but to the wrong side so I guess I dont really need it, its too late to put on the front.

I clipped waaaaay into the inside corners and I think it does look better but I can see one little stitch right at the inside point, any way to get rid of that? I am ok with the outside corners or do you think they need to be pointier?

Thank you to everyone that has helped me!!!!! I will try to work on the real thing this week!!!! I am going to try the facing that Alison has on her blog....

This is a test

I am trying figure out the best way for me to finish off my gradations quilt, I want it done right so I am doing some practice runs. This is how it would look doing a facing, Im not happy with the inside corners and I am afraid to clip them any closer to the stitching.... this look is not making me happy.
This is how I finish all my quilts.... do you think I could do it on the gradations? I would have to make the triangles smaller and I might still have the same problem on the inside corners, I am at a loss. So many of you have given me such great advice but it is hard to understand when I cant see how something is done!!!
Please send all ideas!
