Blooming Nine Patch Quilt (actually four patch)

I took yet another class at the City Quilter in NYC on making a Blooming Nine Patch quilt. Our teacher has made a number of them and came to realize that there is no visible difference between a nine or a four patch. So, of course I took the easier option. This was a gift, so I used warmer color choices than usual. I used this company for longarm services ( They were great, inexpensive (one flat rate for all designs), helpful in picking out a border color over the phone, and kindly walked a novice (moi) through the process.

Shibori Hand Dyed Fabric Pillow

I took a fabric dyeing class at City Quilter here in NYC. The class was fabulous and included some arashi dyeing. This was done using the Shibori technique and then sewn into this pillow.
