I am super excited that the quilt show is coming to 2 locations close to Atlanta in 2014, Charlotte in July and Chattanooga in September. Displays, fabric, machines, notions – inspiration for every quilting, sewing and needlework enthusiast!

The owl design in pink and brown. I am finalizing the steps and illustrations for the pattern for final review before sending to the printer. Now that I have finished the pink, my favorite is the gray and brown and blues. What do you think about the pink?
This little cross stitched owl is perched on a branch with beaded flowers. His eyes are worked in a ribbed spider web stitch, stitched over rings. The blackwork moon behind him gets its dimension using a 2-1/2″ covered button form.
Design size is approximately 3″ x 3-1/2″, and frame size is 5″ x 5″.
Buy the finished and framed piece.
Started on a new project with large print fabric with 1 yard repeat and 1/2 yard half drop. The fabric is from Ikea, and no longer available, so we are seeing what our options are for a little girl’s room.

Fabric shifted 27″ and approx. 12″ from selvage to match.
It is so much easier to use photoshop to work through this and have discussions!
My niece started her freshmen year at UGA. When making the curtains for her dorm room, we didn’t have the length measurement, and the building was locked tight before school started. We counted bricks, and 3-1/2 bricks by 21 bricks yielded 28″ x 59″. They landed perfectly! Yeah!

I have admired Marion’s work since 1989. She designs, writes and teaches, specializing in blackwork and hardanger. These 2 pieces are amazing:
