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.

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.

Fiber Art Fusion October Meeting

We had a lovely time last night playing with silk-screening.  Here are the two pieces I did.

Not sure what I am going to do with them but they can decorate my design wall for a while.

Beginning Machine Piecing–Class Three

We worked on friendship stars last night and learned to make accurate half square triangles by making them slightly large and trimming them down to the correct size.  The homework was the nine patches you see here.

I didn’t get a photo of the friendship stars so they will have to wait until next week.

Design Wall Monday–October 13, 2014

Yet more OBW blocks on my design wall.  I took the rest of the blocks to Bonnie Hunter club at Tiny Stitches yesterday and got all these made.

101314-1

After the meeting, I brought them home and put them on my wall and here they are will all their friends.

101314

After putting them up, I still have enough triangles to make 19 more hexies.  Hopefully I can get these done soon so I can get to the fun part of deciding how to put the quilt top together.

We spent a lot of time talking about the new mystery colors and most of us have decided to use colors close to Bonnie’s selections.  Should be a lot of fun but a long way to wait until we get the first actual clues after Thanksgiving.

Marti’s One Block Wonder

Marti was at Quilt Till You Wilt yesterday with the center of her OBW finished.  She still needs to add borders but it is really looking good.

I can’t wait to see others from the class.

Quilty Fun!

Last night was the monthly meeting of Quilty Fun!  Not a lot of people there but we did have fun!  Here are a few of the rows that were shared last night.

1014 Blocks

Since I thought the second Thursday was next week (apparently I am more calendar challenged than I thought) I didn’t have my blocks sewn together or the mittens even cut out.  Here are my leaf blocks.

1014 Leaf Blocks

I worked on cutting the mittens and will be caught up by next month!  I promise!
