Sampler Savvy–Class Five

1014 Homework from fourth class

Here is the homework from the previous week.  We worked on the Ohio Star, started appliqueing the GFG and cut for the Dresden Plate.  Next week we will work on Drunkards Path, Snails Trail and Card Trick, the last three blocks in the quilts.

1014 Double Four Patch Homework

After admiring the homework from last week, we started making log cabin and courtyard steps blocks.  One more week when we will be making flying geese for the last row.  It gets exciting after that putting the quilt top together.  Can’t wait.

Oakland Cemetery Tour

We went on the Oakland Cemetery Tour last night – we had a great time.  We met at 5:30 and there were six different residents who talked to us.  Here they are in the order we saw them.

Hexie Club

We had our usual good time at Hexie Club last night. Every was working on something different. Michele designed a quilt based on a floor they saw on vacation.  Here is what she has so far.

Here are the updated blocks for this month.

1014 BOM for October

No guesses on next month’s block.  We haven’t been able to guess yet so we will patiently wait for November 1.

Beginning Machine Piecing–Class Four

Last weeks blocks were friendship stars.  Lots of points and intersections to pay attention to.  A few of the students had trouble finishing their homework but everyone got at least one or two blocks done.  Here is the homework.

1014 Friendship Star Homework

We went on to the square dance block and then double four patches.  Log cabin blocks next week.

Design Wall Monday–October 20, 2014

Nothing on my design wall today – this is rare but I put the last One Block Wonder on a flannel backed tablecloth and it is folded up waiting for the rows to be sewn together.

I have been working on projects for my Make and Take class next month.  We will be working on five different projects with the idea that the students will make each  one and perhaps have ideas for holiday gifts.  I posted the first one last week – a travel pillow.

I finished up the second one this morning – a clock.  It was actually easy to make but it took a lot of time trying to figure out how to put the actual clockworks together.  Finally got it done in time to meet Lynda for bagels and flu shots.  Here it is.

1014 Clock

Cute isn’t it.  I still have three more projects to work on.  I am making a hexagon zipper bag, a small fabric box and coasters.  I tested out each of the projects with other fabric but am now remaking them using the Miss Kate fabric from Bonnie and Camille.  Next is writing all the directions for each projects.

For more design walls, go to Patchwork Times.
