We had a great class earlier this week. The homework from the first class is here.
Didn’t the blocks turned out wonderful. Can’t wait until Wednesday to see the next installment.
We had our monthly block of the month meeting at guild yesterday. We are on the 10th of 12 blocks finished for this years’ BOM. Here is my block.
Here are the first nine blocks with the sashing on.
Only two more blocks to make and then several borders need to be added.
One person had car trouble so hopefully we will see her blocks next week. We then worked on Nine Patch blocks and each of them got several blocks done. I am loving the fabrics for each quilt – such fun to see blocks that are exactly alike but so very different.
About a week ago we spent the day working on cutting up fabric for community service quilts and pillowcases. We have a lot of fabric donated to us so we cut a lot into 2 1/2 inch strips and a few other shapes to make other kits. We also cut up a lot of pillowcase kits.
Here are some of the strips – we had both regular cottons and batiks.
I took these photos fairly early and the boxes were almost full of strips by the end of the day. Later on we sorted the batiks and make jelly roll equivalents. We ended up with 14 full batik jelly rolls and several partial ones.
Barb made sloppy Joes – very good and there were lots of chips and other goodies to go with. There were a couple of cakes and the most Dunkin Donuts boxes I have seen in one place. There were enough donuts for the whole police force!
Every year I teach a Make and Take day at Tiny Stitches. It is scheduled for November 15. We always have a fun time and the students go home with several projects that they take home – usually completed or very close to being completed.
Here are the projects for this year.
There is a bag, a covered journal, a covered (wool) tape measure, a table runner and a fold up tool bag that doubles as a pad for your sewing machine, keeping your tools handy.
