ATX skyline with quilt - photo by Summer McWilliams Milliman

Sometimes things don't always go as planned. This photo was taken this summer during what was supposed to be an awesomely epic ATX MQG meeting in the park. We planned a date and told everyone to come.. and then it rained and nobody came. Boo.

Well, I was there with my quilt and the photographer, Summer McWilliams Milliman (www.summersimages.com) still showed up so I said well dang we are here let's take some photos! I am so glad we did because I love how the quilt looks against the greyed out Austin downtown skyline.

Always try to have fun and make the best of a situation. You never know what might come out of it. At the very least you will have a fun memory and a photo or two.

Here is a picture I took in my home studio for some new business cards! Exciting things happening around here. I am now focusing on my longarm quilting services and making original quilts full time and will be moving into Canopy, a new artist studio complex in East Austin (916 Sprindale RD). My quilting studio will be open to visitors that want to hang out and chat/sew or bring me some patchwork tops to quilt! I am in BLDG 1 Studio #202 and will be moving in and setting up my machine ASAP. I hope to be spreading the love of fabric and modern quilting further and bringing functional art to people all over ATX and beyond.
