LOVE this pattern but haven't done anything with it yet. But I will....
Current project on my wall, "Stacks" pattern by Tula Pink, but I had to do lots of MATH to bring it down to a more reasonable block size. Hers was 18", and I just didn't want the finished quilt to be as large as hers, yet I still wanted the same number of blocks and rows to get the same look. LOVE this! I have all the blocks done now, although they are not in this picture. This quilt be done by June & I will post completed picture.
No further comment on the one below, other than the caption. It has an undecided future.
|Guild block of the month.|
|LOVE! Spider web using selvages. Definitely will finish!!|
I think it needs to be larger. Didn't use for purpose originally intended, but it will go forward at some point for someone or something. Great pattern, I think the book was 'Sizzling 60's', as in 60 degrees.
Now to a few projects in boxes, neat labeled, stacked on the shelf in my studio.
Below is a 'Chippewa Nine Patch' that I started in a class with Minnick & Simpson at the Grand Hotel, May 2011. Beautiful!
When Edyta Sitar visited Cameo Quilt Guild & taught this class, it was the 2nd class I had with her, the first being when she visited my guild, Great Lakes Heritage Quilters sometime prior. She is a fantastic teacher, full of energy & excitement for quilting. I think I only need to make maybe 10 more of these blocks to finish the top. I purchased a beautiful roll of fabric from her in class that I am using for this project. We actually made table runners of the pattern in class, then I HAD to make a whole quilt.
Some of the Chickens (see previous blog entry if you have no clue who or what 'chickens' are) did a year along exchange of Shoo Fly blocks, using shirtings and any type of blue. Can't remember how many I ended up with, but it's MANY, MANY blocks. Project on the back burner for now, but I have a setting idea for the blocks ready to put into action.
Last to look at today is a box I started up based on Gwen Marston. I wanted to keep together things left over from projects that I may want to use someday. She calls doing this 'The Parts Department'. I also have been 'making fabric', maybe 8-10", in the style of Victoria Findlay Wolfe using scraps from the garbage or from one of my scrap containers, so those are a perfect additition to the "Parts Department for future to use. 'Orphan' blocks can go here too--something that was fun to make but has no purpose, so far.
Looking at all those pictures makes me want to sew!
