How I Made "Under the Rainbow"

By popular demand (or at least requests by Frieda and Judy) I wrote up a little explanation of how I made "Under the Rainbow". It's on my website - here's the link.

Bonnie McCaffery did a great job capturing the flavor of the Houston International Quilt Festival this year. I was lucky enough to meet Bonnie, and you can see me in a brief interview towards the end of her vidcast. Thanks Bonnie!

I'll leave you with a view of our Japanese Maple from about a week ago.

Thanks so much for the tute! I am so impressed and also loved seeing closeups of your fine machine quilting. I have even more respect for your lovely piece now!
I got out my knitting needles and started my first cabled hat last night. Since I haven't been knitting too long this second time around in my life, this first hat will be for me. when I've gotten a bit better, I hope to make a few for family members. I'm knitting with cashmere yarn, and that alone is a gift to me!

Your machine quilting is amazing! What an interesting process - Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Diane. I was fascinated with the process. I have the Epson 2200, but have never printed anything that long. What fabric did you use? If you use your own fabric, how did you stabilize it? TIA

We missed you today!

(I think your next quilt should be based on the photo below of the view down your driveway - that's stunning! The view down my driveway is a rotting rusting dumpster. Less stunning.)

Lovely leaf shot! I also met Bonnie earlier this year when we both teaching at NZ's Quilting Symposium, and I also featured in her vidcast of that event.
