Crossroads To Jericho Baby Quilts

Image
  After completing a couple of tote bags,  I decided to switch gears to donation baby quilts.  I visited a local thrift store  to find some cotton sheets to use to make the quilts.  I found sheets that were a medium green and an off white  that coordinate with a fun shark cotton fabric  that I had bought a few weeks ago. How fun is that? I’ve cut the strips for the nine patch part of the blocks  and I’ve been sewing them togther. It’s relaxing sewing while I listen to a good audio book. Happy sewing, Judy

Spindle Spinning

Image
Each morning I try to take the time to fit in some hand spinning.  I love using my Turkish spindles to create a unique, soft yarn. Happy spinning, Judy

Second Towel Using the Plaited Twill Warp

Image
  I just started weaving the second kitchen towel  on my eight shaft plaited twill warp. For this towel I’m using a 16/2 linen in burnt orange  that I purchased from the Yarn Barn of Kansas. I love the burnt orange color even if I can’t see the pattern as well.  The linen yarn adds a bit of sheen to the handwoven cloth.  As I throw the shuttle, it’s very rewarding to watch a unique cloth emerge. Weave on, Judy

Weaving A Plain Weave Rug

Image
 Last winter I spent hours in my basement dyeing rug wool. Now I get to play/weave with the yarn that I dyed. I’m weaving this on my vintage Glimåkra countermarch loom.  My husband, Marshall, created two long treadles  for me so that I can stand while weaving.  They work quite well. I’m using plain weave with alternating, random stripes  to weave this rug.  I’m choosing colors to coordinate with an improv quilt that I made. Weave on, Judy
