Modern Quilters of Ireland Exhibit!!!

I am SO excited to spread the word about the Modern Irish Quilter's exhibit to be held in Dublin the 25 May - 26 June at St Patrick's Hospital on St James's Street.  It is just a 5 minute walk from Heuston Station with lots of parking available if you choose to drive.  Be sure to jot it down in your diary right now...we'll wait.  So many of our Modern Irish Quilters have been stitching like crazy, creating our own patterns and quilting our hearts out in preparation.  You will not want to miss seeing all of their amazing finishes gathered together in one place.

What I really want to tell you about is the launch on 4th June.  I have the great pleasure of speaking at our launch as the co-founder (with Sarah) of the group along with Paula Rafferty, a member of the group.  I want to talk about our quilting community, its importance to me in terms of support, inspiration and encouragement.  If you are so inclined, I ask you to share your thoughts about the quilting community and what it means to you.  I would love to incorporate the voice of the community in my launch speech beyond babbling on about myself and my own views.

Thank you!

Eclipse: The beginning

Sewing has not been top of my priority list, so it is taking me ages to piece or quilt anything.  Today, though, I finally finished a New York Beauty block that has been bouncing around in my head for weeks.  It's so incredibly satisfying to finally see it in real life.  

Do you remember at the end of March I took a NYB class?  I finished one block in red and yellow. The one I finished today is navy and orange, shortly to be followed by pink and green and finally aqua and purple.   The idea is to make a 36x36 inch "mini" using four NYB blocks.  It will be called Eclipse as the blocks remind me of the eclipse I saw on my way to the my NYB class.  It was inevitable really.

Love it.  You will see it is not perfect, but I am absolutely getting better.  By the fourth I will have this malarkey mastered  I am sure.  My pinks and greens are pulled and ready to go.  Just need to make a few more arc templates and I am ready to roll!
