Having finished the Every Day in May sketching challenge, I am now able to move on to some of my other commitments. If you have been following my monthly commitment to finish a quilt once a month, you will know I am or was a bit behind. Yesterday I finished June’s quilt, skipped May for now but am almost done with that too. I’ll be posting photos later this month.
As you may know I teach Machine Quilting Classes at New Pieces in Berkeley. I am always telling my students that the secret to success is practice, practice, practice. Sometimes I do not listen to my own words but lately I have been sitting down at my machine and quilting for at least 30 minutes a day. With all the sketching I have been doing, my quilting has become a little shaky but by practicing every day I feel like I am getting the groove back. It is so difficult to strike a balance between quilting and sketching but at least I am never bored.
