I am so totally on a roll.
I had my third Sampler Quilt class this past Friday. The teacher looked over our blocks, she gave us a bit of instruction and then told us to do two new blocks. Due in two weeks. No biggie, right? Well, yeah, I guess. Here is my first:
They call this one Jacob's Ladder. Nice pattern...very Amish-ish, IMO. As you can tell, I'm keeping with the bandana - blue/white/red scheme. I honestly like the way that it ended up. Go....Me! (quietly shouts to herself....woo! hoo!) I did this one on Saturday afternoon after a bit of second-bedroom-organizing-old-clothes-ditching-make-way-for-baby-even-though-we-have-no-idea-when-she'll-get-here sort of energy. Definitely a good time for a project (read: definitely time for some sort of focus-changing-activity).
Next block Flower Star...or was it Star Flower?
Here are the preliminary cuttings:
I took advice from Shelba re: "Pinning the Hell Out of It" and that is what I did (see below).
I then sewed the seriously pinned parts together - see below:
Here's what came of it (keep in mind that I had to rip out 2 or three pieces in the process):
I must do the close-up because I am so proud of the very excellent "points" that I got this time around.
I do think that this quilt thing is rubbing off on me.
Til' next class...........
