What's Up??

I thought that you might like to see some of our Jacket Class from Last weekend. The class was for 2 days and was sponsored by the Quilted Pearl in Columbia.

This was our instructor, Joan Derylak, of Figure Flattering Quiltwear

We had a great 2 days. We are all doing Bargello Jackets. Some Slant Bargello and some Straight Bargello.

Joan made sure that we had patterns altered to fit each of us. With her method of pattern making we can make any type of jacket from our base pattern. Her "stuff" is so pretty to see in person and the jackets are not bulky like so many jackets that I have seen.

Here Joan is fitting Mary so that her Jacket will fit perfectly.

This is what I have done so far. The back has 2 pieces. These are not sewn together yet.

I hope to work on Baby Jane this weekend. Piper is visiting the Studio today and tomorrow is a swim event at my brother's house, so might not get much done. Anina will be taking a few days off so that will give me some catch up time.

Dick and Tori are working on the Screened Porch. We are down to the final caulking and painting. Soon it will be ready to furnish. This project has only taken a year and 6 or 7 months. Dick does say that it will be finished by Christmas.

Hope you have a great weekend.
