Wednesday Wait Loss 123

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss. Please share what you’ve been working on!

First let me tell you what I've been up to

On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, I attended our special Handi Quilter truck event. You see, the quilt store where I work is one of seven premier Handi Quilter stores, so we get a special event every quarter. This quarter’s event was the truck event.

Handi Quilter sent two trainers and a truck full of long arms to our store, and we set them up in a special section of the building where we are located. Then from Thursday to Saturday, the two trainers presented a series of classes. I took as many as I could, including Longarm Basics, Fabulous Free Motion Quilting, and Fun Fillers.

I had tons of fun working on improving my longarm quilting knowledge and skills.

I put those skills to good use on Monday by longarming a quilt for Island Batik’s Fall/Winter catalog and Fall Quilt Market. Just in time, since the quilt is due in California on Friday! I mailed it off yesterday so it’ll arrive on Thursday. Woot!

Unfortunately, I can’t show you the quilt since the fabrics have not been released to the market yet. So I’ve blurred the image below. It’s a collection of lovely purples and blues which is why I was drawn to it. The quilting motif I chose has little shamrocks in it and I love it because I’m Irish.

On Saturday I presented the third installment of my Spring Quilt Market report. I saw so many cool fabrics, tools, and patterns! If you missed the report, click here.

Well that was my week!
