Learning to Long Arm Quilt

I try and learn some new type of art form every year during Baby Lux Design's off season. Last year I learned how to weld metal, This year I'm learning how to free motion quilt on my Mom's Gamill, Statler Stitcher long arm quilting machine. I'm pretty lucky to have access to not only a professional machine like this but the talent and knowledge of my Mom who has competed in quite a few quilt shows the past couple years.  Big RED is her name...she's super pretty and mighty capable! the first five minutes on the machine and I'm already...

ZERO waste sewing studio...

ZERO waste sewing studio...

Weeks ago I was explaining to a customer of mine at the farmers market that I try hard to be a zero waste sewing studio. In fact, it's actually how a lot of my product ideas have been born. I think it's actually kinda cool. While sewing baby bibs in large amounts years ago...I held onto the fabric remnant piece that I end up with every time I cut the bib necklines, like in the photo below (next to the scissors) At first I saw a hot air balloon appliqué...but I usually keep consistent appliqué fabrics set for each design I create so...

My free therapy. Seems looking through photos this morning, I've been doodling on rocks for over a year now... It's been fun to collect rocks where ever we go.  Some rocks I just use various brand paint pens and some I've used metallic paints using my really fine point brushes. I'm currently experimenting with spray finishes to preserve them. But I don't quite like how a clear coat of enamel is changing the coloration of the rock under my art....but I want the option of putting them outside without the artwork running off if they get rained on. Here's a...
