Crazy Quilt Twilt

It’s been a while since I posted and I thought it was about time to get started again. Alot has been going on. Although Cathedral Window Quilting has been my passion I have missed Silk Ribbon Embroidery. I bet you would never have guessing looking at some of my Twilts. 🙂 I have been doing quite a bit of that recently as well as more dyeing of ribbon and rayon trim and Crazy Quilting. What a fabulous opportunity to use all the stuff I have been collecting.

So, my re-entry into blogging is a Crazy Quilt Twilt. I belong to a group of ladies that have totally inspired me so you’re going to be seeing even more crazy quilting and embellishing.

About a year and a half ago I started doing Quilt Shows with Georgia Puga from Georgia’s Quilting Obsession. It has been quite an adventure traveling all around. We ask ourselves frequently why we work this hard but we’re having a blast. Last month I helped move Georgia’s shop to a new location in Beaumont, California. She can now be found at 709 Beaumont Avenue. There’s lots more room and I have classes scheduled there. Check out her website: http://www.georgiasquiltingobsession.com/index.html

Happy Quilting and Twilting!!

    OMG!…. Welcome Back, Shelley!!! Miss you! Miss You!!

    Love your Twilt. The colors and stitching are beautiful.
    I have to say, Crazy Quilting is such a creative outlet – I can understand your enjoyment!

    You’ll have to share pictures of your hand-dyed ribbons. (that would be a fun class to do with you!)

    Well, I could go on and on, but I’ll keep it short here… just glad to see you back.
