I love days like this one...
I think we only got a day and a half of views like this. Maybe next September will have more.
Yesterday was Breakfast Club. We had a tiny group which was great fun...just not much for show and tell.
I didn't realize until today that I never got the name of the gal who made this quilt even though she sat right behind me and we talked all day...oops! Here is the strip quilt she made, Jelly Roll 1600.
Last month's pattern was Jelly Jive and this was the class sample I forgot to share.
A modern look.
October's project is geared toward Christmas and has two parts. This quilt is about 30" squared.
This quick runner will also be part of the class.
November's project...which I will miss...will be this quilt.
Yesterday's pattern was Scrap Crazy.
It entails using an acrylic ruler set from Creative Grids.
I really enjoyed this project. It went so quickly. I didn't cut enough pieces to keep me busy for the entire class despite the fact that I think I spent most of my time visiting and shopping. The shop was having an incredible sale that included batiks...I enhanced my stash!
I finished these 12 blocks. I used 6" strips of six fabrics.
My husband is home for a little while and I am without a vehicle. (One of my son's totaled his vehicle so he is driving my car.) Why does this matter? My husband drove me to Breakfast Club. After I paid for my huge purchase of new fabric it dawned on me my husband would be witness to my big bag of fabric. Really....it is very silly of me to feel guilty about this purchase. After all...I got these fabrics for about $7.00 a yard. In Paris these fabrics would cost at least $27 a meter. But it is a habit to think I should never fully disclose how much fabric I buy. So I crammed the new fabric into my class project bag and my sewing machine tote. Did he notice how much heavier they were to load into his truck? Nope!
