happy valentines day!

Aren’t I just so festive?

I started the morning off with some free-spirited, free-motion. Sometimes you just need to do some doodling, and that’s exactly what’s been going on here. The sample (Aerial, btw) is for a workshop I’m doing in March, and I’ve had it basted and ditch-stitched for longer than I should admit.


We’ve got QuiltCon a week away, which is nuts! I’m totally excited to be taking off for a few days, hanging out with lots of quilters, being in Austin, and doing whatever else along the way. I know there are plenty of folks who aren’t able to make it, and so I’ve decided to run some posts while I’m gone featuring tons of my recent projects in a little series I’m calling, “a quilt a day.” I hope that’s not too dorky.


So watch out for that, and send any pics my way (info[at]carolynfriedlander[dot]com). I’d love to include some quilts from you too. It’ll be our own lil quilt show.


And remember my recent sewing binge? Cheryl just released details on her next goodie. It’s safe to say that I’m already obsessed.

    Totally not dorky! It was great to see you and your work at QuiltCon. I love the quilting closeup in this post. What machine are you using?
