Pat and I shared a table. Half way through the class we decided to approach the class as a team project. Pat's shoulder was hurting, so she was having problems cutting. I love to cut and Pat can sew like the wind, so it was beneficial to both of us. I squared up her blocks while she sewed mine together. The technique involves making the blocks oversized and then trimming them down using a special ruler designed for the pattern. Pat did a little cutting and I did some sewing so we would be familiar with the whole skill set needed for the project.
|Here is Pat sewing merrily away!|
|Ironing in progress. I LOVE the quilt in front of the ironing board. |
I told Pat NOT to let me sign up for it. It is a Block of the Month,
all hand work in wool. It was gorgeous!
|This is what I was able to finish in class. I really like my color combination.|
|Pat and I both matched the colors we chose for our quilts. |
Hers is the yellow and grey behind our heads.
Hope you had a good weekend! It will be October 1st (and my brother Jeff's birthday) on Tuesday! Can you believe it?
Pugs and kisses,
