Welcome to an inside look at how this quilt designer and fiber artist keeps life interesting.
I have been an artist most of my life in various mediums, but when I learned to quilt, I combined the knowledge of other mediums with fabric.
I started NESTLINGS by Robin in 2004 and you can view my published quilt patterns at www.nestlingsbyrobin.com
For those of you perplexed about the post title, it stands for Drop and Give Me Twenty:) It isn't too late to join us...just click on the link in Beth's name below.
So, I know it doesn't look like much but this is my other handwork the last 2 days...I have hand pieced 7 Drunkards Path blocks and have an 8th one on the pillow:) I took a class with Pepper Cory, Queen of the Drunkards Path, about 2 years ago. This block has always intrigued me and then I found out how much more you can do with it! Curved piecing intimidated me for years and I hoped that a class would boost my confidence...well how could it not when the pieces are so big:) Still after being all cut, they sat in my closet scaring me from the dark. Now that I have pulled them out and taken a deep breath, they are actually getting done. I am still a bit nervous about stretching them too much but they are coming together nicely. I will still have to find a way to add applique because that is what I do!!!
My friend, Beth, is getting so much more done...check out her blog and join us:)
