Sampler Sampler Class 7

Last night was the next to last class of this session of Sampler Savvy.  Lots of progress was being made but we still have a long way to go to get the tops together.

Here are the design walls from last night.

Allatoona BOM Today

We had a great time at our BOM meeting today.  Here are my blocks so far.

0515 First Row

Here is a close-up of this months block.

0515 May Block

I have the next row of sashing on the first row and it is looking pretty good.  One more block and I can put the first half of the quilt together.

Here are a few more blocks from today.

Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild

We had a brown bag challenge where we put 5 fat quarters in a brown bag and exchanged them.  We had a couple of months to make something out of the fat quarters.  We could add two additional fabrics – any amount and were supposed to use at least some of each of the fat quarters. 

I received 5 fat quarters that were from Lakehouse a few years ago.  They were bright pink, lime green and black.  I looked at them for long time before I decided to make a set of placemats.  Since the pattern I used called for 4 fat quarters on the front, I bought a backing and then added a strip of the 5th fat quarter to each one so the backs are different but made from the same fabrics.

0515 Brown Bag Challenge for Rebecca

The back was a lime green polka dot with a strip of another green stripe.  Turns out that the fat quarters belonged to Rebecca.  I hope she likes her placemats.

I put some Amy Butler fat quarters in my paper bag and was lucky enough to have it given to Pam.  She actually made me a quilt!

0515 Brown Bag Challenge from Pam

Great big Hexies!  I love it!  I really like how she put the border on two sides and let the hexies float off the edge of the quilt.  Also she added a little extra print fabric into the binding.

UFO #2 and UFO #5

The UFO for last month was number 2.  Here it is on my original list.

0115 UFO #2 - Bright Stripst

Here it is all finished.

0515 UFO #2 Finished

I donated it to the guild community service project.  The blocks were from the Block Lotto a few years ago.  Hopefully it will make someone happy.

We then chose the UFO to work on for this month – due in June.  This one is UFO #5.

0115 UFO #5 - Half Moon Modern

I picked out a backing for this one so hopefully will get it quilted and ready for June.
