Signing Off for the Summer

I havent' shown the first finished QuiltStorm quilt, which is (strangely enough) QuiltStorm #4. It's the first time I've ever sealed the binding by machine, rather than tacking it down. The technique looks, um, not quite perfect when you look at it up close:


...but looks just fine once you get your face out of it. And I figure these are quilts to be seen from a distance.


QS#2 is right behind it, with only a half-hour or so of work remaining.

The 2007-2008 Quilt Year is Officially Over!

And that's all for now! SoTC is now officially on its yearly summer sabatical. I'll be back in August to gear up for the new quilt season.

In the meantime, by the way, I'm going to scrap the "Quilt Blogs by Men" webring. The platform that hosts it is very cumbersome, and not worth the trickle of traffic that the ring has seen. Apologies to those who went through the work of setting it up.

Meanwhile, if you are in the City of Roses, maybe I'll see you this weekend at the Northwest Quilters annual show (I'll have two pieces in it). Or, maybe I'll see you in Sisters in July. Or in Seattle in early August. Obviously, we're going to have a lot to talk about when I get back from break.


Have a great summer!

Good luck in the quilt shows! Have a great time in any case.

Your loyal readers will miss you over the summer, but life has its seasons.

Hey Michael,
Yeah the men's quilting webring was a bust, but hey, it was worth a try, thanks for trying. Sorry I haven't visited as much..life has been very hectic these days! Happy summer. Hope to reconnect some more this fall!
