Basted & Tied
Are you familiar with that glowing feeling you get when you've been working really hard to learn something new, and you finally reach that point where you think you see a little spot of light at the end of a long tunnel?
At that point you exhale and smile for all you've accomplished, and then you celebrate. How does a quilter celebrate? By quilting, of course! And so I did. I started a popular but easy quilt, and although I've only pressed and cut, I know I'm already going to LOVE it. I'll be sure to keep you posted.
On another note, I found this little gem of a blog entry that made me smile, so I thought I would share it with you. Maybe this is the solution to our little UFO problem. ...
Until next time --

Elisa Sims Albury is the editor of Quilter's World magazine, and other books and pattern books published by DRG.
Elisa holds a Bachelor of Science and a master's degree in geology. She has spent most of her professional career working for state government in the western United States, managing projects related to municipal and agricultural water supply and use. Additionally, she has spent time working on an Angus ranch in southwestern Wyoming. She is handy to have around at cattle brandings and during haying season.
Elisa began quilting after she and her husband moved to Santa Fe, N.M., and when she "finally got a real job." She is knowledgeable on numerous styles and techniques in quilt making from traditional to contemporary. Elisa enjoys making art quilts of her own design, which often include handwork techniques such as applique, beading and embroidery. She also enjoys making quilts that are based upon science and math. Elisa's art quilts help to balance the "left side of her brain" where she obsesses with making traditional quilts, albeit with a twist, where all points must match up.
Elisa has won several awards with her original quilt designs. She has sold a quilt at the prestigious Alegre Quilt Retreat formerly held in Santa Fe, N.M. She has also completed several pieces on commission. In addition to quilting, she enjoys cooking (and eating), studying Japanese, and improving her photography skills.
