End of Beginning Machine Piecing

It is always bittersweet to complete a session of the class.  After eight weeks, we get to know everyone is class and it is somewhat sad to not get together each week.  Here are the wonderful quilt tops that were completed tonight.

Design Wall Monday–September 15, 2014

I am starting to sew together my OBW.  Here it is laid out on my bed.

Here it is from the side.

After talking the photos, I started sewing the blocks together.  I just got two rows done before it was time to meet my friends for breakfast.

Looking good so far.

Quilting Live 2014

Quilting Live finished up yesterday. Here is a photo of part of the booth. Fortunately it is set up by others from the shop and my responsibility is to run it for 3 days. The show usually get slow in the afternoons so I went back to the shop where it was VERY busy to finish out the day.

Quilting Live Show in Georgia

I have been working at the Quilting Live show for the past couple of days.  The show closes today – it has been fun and hard work.

Some of the exhibits have been very interesting.  One that I liked a lot had old quilts from eBay that were quilted by modern longarmers.

September Quilting Fun

0914 September Rows

We had a great time at Quilty Fun last night.  Here are a few of the rows that have been completed.  I am still working on my leaf row – just ran out of time.  They are all made but just need to sew them together.

Sampler Savvy Class 7

We had class 7 of Sampler Savvy yesterday.  We started putting the sashing on the blocks and next week will put on the borders.

It is interesting how different the blocks look when they have the sashing on.

Design Wall Monday–September 8, 2014

Still working on my OBW – more progress but still a lot more to make.

090814-2

They are just stuck up on the wall, lots of rearranging to do when they are all made.  It is so much fun to see each one and how it turns out.

I did finish a quilt also.  This pattern is called Split Decision and the fabric line is Elementary by Sweetwater.  I love everything they have designed.

090814-1

It has wool batting so the texture of the quilting really shows up.

For more design walls, go to Patchwork Times here.
