Awhile back, I found Jude Hill and her Spirit Cloth. It had me spell bound for a long time.
I have recently joined her wonder-filled on-line class; and I have been very inspired to process and create ideas that have been percolating.
The spell has been lifted, my hands and heart are ready~ the right moment is Now. My Japanese quilt has never felt right. I adore the fabrics I found. Some are old, some are from old kimonos, some I bought in Japan, some given to me...
After eight years, I am removing the machine quilting
