Shawkl Designs: Kentucky Certain…nearly!


 Nicely, shortly anyway…have a gaggle go to the tip of July. Presently, am engaged on some kits…and a pattern of the category mission. Here is the general design in colour:

We have agreed to vary the preliminary coronary heart form to the extra simplified sq….simply because it will be simpler to handle for all talent ranges. Right here is the structure of the bottom layer of fiber embroidery (with out the silk ribbon parts or any beads/sequins/buttons).

The SHAPE seam within the middle (hexagons) is the final to sew…and is versatile sufficient to choose/select parts to make use of when filling the area. You’ll discover that it differs within the “actual life” instance…as a result of I had sewn the block of silk materials earlier than altering the scale barely within the ultimate sample. Slightly than re-sew a brand new block…am simply going with the unique structure because the changes have been fairly minor.

Right here is the block of Dupioni Silk materials with the finished first layer of embellishment…fiber embroidery.

I am resting from it…and making an attempt to resolve if I need to proceed with the opposite layers (ribbon and beads) now…or hold it like this for the category so everybody can extra simply see the thread work. 

Additionally engaged on kits for the category…have spent an excellent portion of Memorial Day weekend punching 1/16″ holes in school templates. I prefer to have a little bit equipment prepared…after which bigger units of template accessible on the market if people resolve that they just like the strategies/procedures and need to proceed on their very own. (In fact, they may additionally leap into the free lessons as these are ALL uploaded right here to the weblog…however I plan on speaking to that topic throughout the class whereas in Kentucky).

There are nonetheless small needle circumstances to create for the category; and print out the directions sheets. However all that will probably be performed earlier than packing subsequent month. All is on monitor!

So, subsequent up is the design/creation of a pattern guide for a category in Mississippi subsequent Spring. It’s due for example for the Guild earlier than September…so, working as quick as I can.

Nonetheless dealing with Quilt Guild enterprise because the president of the native guild; household occasions; working full-time; and designing a fourth templet set. ALWAYS busy!
