First up: Cathedral Windows at Quilt In Joy! I've always wanted to learn how to make these! They are so easy, too! This was just the little sample I made in class. I think I'll turn it into a pincushion :) I highly recommend the book- it has great diagrams, and gorgeous project ideas!
Next up was "Snippet Stew" at Pieceful Gatherings! I don't go to this shop much- it's too far from my house, and they only carry Civil War and 1930's repros- my two least favorite fabrics!! But they had come to my guild to speak, and I was intrigued by the pattern, and the method used to make it.
I used a Swanky layer cake and solid white. I think my color choices threw the teacher for a bit of a loop- they were decidedly different than anything anyone else was using :) I am using a different method to make my blocks, too. Her way is the raw-bias-edge way: I don't do raw bias unless it's absolutely necessary, and in this case it's not! I plan to work on it today.
And lastly I went to Vicki's "Lock-in and Unload" UFO night at Tammy Tadd Designs! These are always SO much fun!! I put together this little top. It's made from "Wildwood" by Erin McMorris, along with a Moda solid white. I think I'm going to make some more triangles to make it bigger, though. It's about 45" square right now.
I have my i-Tunes set up to just play through my music by artist in alphabetical order. It just went from Rachmoninov to Shakira, then from Shakira to Simon and Garfunkel. I guess I like all kinds of music!
