This week’s look at what quilting editors based in our Golden, Colorado, office are working on in their free time features the debut of the newest addition to our team, Annette Falvo! And now that Lori Baker has started to get the sewing room in her new home set up, there just no stopping her. Take a look!
From Acquisitions Editor Lori Baker:
I did a whole lot of sewing over the weekend. I have almost all the half-square triangles pieced together for my version of Louisa’s Attic from the November/December 2013 issue of McCall’s Quilting. You can read more about the original version of Louisa’s Attic here. I’m making mine queen-size and using lots and lots of blue scraps from my stash.
From Technical Editor Annette Falvo:
I spent the weekend blocking (squaring up) the quilt I made for an upcoming quilt challenge. I enjoy participating in quilt challenges for a number of reasons. I get feedback from judges that helps me improve my skills and it’s a chance for me to play with new fabrics that often take me out of my comfort zone. For this fabric line, Thrive by Natalia Bonner for Moda Fabrics, I wanted the quilt to have an organic yet uplifting feel. I used Sue Spargo’s techniques to add hand-stitched wool butterfly and flower appliques.
