An Autumn Vibes Friendship Braid Quilt : :


I'm so excited to share this new quilt, my Autumn Vibes Friendship Braid Quilt!


Before I share a tutorial for this new Quick Quilt As You Go, first I have to share my pretty, newly finished quilt featuring my brand new Autumn Vibes collection for Art Gallery Fabrics!


When I designed this collection I tried so hard to capture the warmth and coziness of Autumn, full of prints and colors that would create the perfect quilt to leave on the sofa all season long!

This Autumn Vibes Friendship Brand Quilt is definitely the one for me!


Since we're still a few weeks away from when the Fall foliage is in full flourish, on Friday I stopped by the local Farmer's Market to pick up these gorgeous, colorful Dahlia's and Zinnias to use in my photos.




Yesterday afternoon we were able to sneak out to a favorite local spot for photographs just before the rain. The weather was changing fast and the light & cool breeze were perfect, I wish you all could have been there!


See that backing fabric peeking out? Well, that's my Autumn Vibes Harvest Trails in Walnut and I think it's my new favorite quilt backing fabric!


I set out to create a design reminiscent of a vintage Kilim poncho, with a woven look and texture, and I'm so happy with how this print turned out!


Mister Goat agrees!

I especially LOVE the way it looks from afar in this full shot!


In recent weeks I've been quite obsessed with quilting using the built-in wavy stitch that's a feature of my Janome Quilt Maker 15000. It adds just the right amount of quilty goodness without much effort, which is just perfect for me! These days I'm so busy designing fabric collections that I don't often finish a quilt without having to send it out to a long-arm quilter, if I even get that far. This stitch, PLUS quick quilt as you go, makes for a very achievable quilt finish from start to finish. LOVE that!





I'm already ready to make another!

How about you, do you think you'll give this Friendship Braid QAYG pattern a try?

When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children.

  21. Over the past year, Amazon has revealed details about Project Kuiper’s antenna design, selected United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V rocket for the initial satellite launches, and acquired still more office space for Kuiper employees in Redmond.

    According to The Information, the employees who came to Kuiper from Facebook in April are based in the Los Angeles area. They are said to include physicists as well as optical, prototyping, mechanical and software engineers who have worked on aeronautical systems and wireless networks. One of the employees, Jin Bains, was formerly Facebook’s head of Southern California connectivity and is now described on his LinkedIn page as a director on the Project Kuiper team.

    The Information reported that Amazon paid Facebook as part of the deal for the employee switchover, but did not provide further details. “It’s not unheard of for big companies to buy groups of employees from one another, just as they often buy small startups to beef up staff in various parts of their business,” The Information’s Sarah Krouse and Sylvia Varnham O’Regan explained.

    Neither Amazon nor Facebook was willing to discuss the financial arrangements in email exchanges with GeekWire.

    Just as the additions to Amazon’s staff underscore its seriousness about Project Kuiper, the subtractions from Facebook underscore the fact that the social-media giant doesn’t intend to get into the satellite business.

    Instead, Facebook is focusing on terrestrial connectivity programs including Magma (which Amazon Web Services has integrated into its edge computing services), Evenstar, Terragraph and Express Wi-Fi. Facebook has also invested in more than 6,000 miles of terrestrial fiber and 23,000 miles of subsea fiber as part of its campaign to enhance global networking.

    Last year, a Facebook subsidiary known as PointView Tech had a single Athena satellite launched to test laser-based communications. The satellite had been the subject of FCC filings as recently as February. But a Facebook spokesperson said the mission served only as a means for testing communication technologies — and that the company doesn’t intend to operate its own satellite constellation, or become an internet service provider, a mobile operator or a tech vendor. Instead, it plans to work in partnership with existing satellite operators such as Eutelsat.for more gmail login
