Focus Fabric

March 6, 2010 by

Okay, this will probably be my focus fabric for the next project… the question will be, “Do I have enough?” I have many pinks and reds, a few greens, and not so many beiges.

It was finished a few days ago … It was a gift so I didn’t want to post till after Christmas 🙂

Bento Box

Bento Box

Did I mention that I backed it with ‘Fireside’? Really cozy and snuggly but tough to work with using the quilt as you go technique I used…. I quilted the centre box and added the borders which curled devilishly as I worked with it.

I NEED help!

Heres the problem… I’ve rearranged these blocks after this photograph was snapped but I just can’t seem to make it ‘work’ with all the fabrics we swapped.

Did you guys use all our swapped fabrics?

Bento Box Weekend

There were more seams to match than I first imagined once the set of four blocks started going together, but I made it through without too much trouble.

I spent more time rearranging blocks before sewing together than making the individual blocks, I think.

It helps if I remembered how to add the picture. I hope this comes through.bento box quilt

Fast and fun. Now to decide what kind of boarder to put on if any.

Next Project

Working on our next project, the Bento Box… Here’s my sneak peek!

Red Blocks

These blocks are my test blocks… The funny thing is that I was testing the darker fabric choice (blue) to see if the large print would work… but discovered that the ‘directional’ was actually more bothersome.

Valentine Bargello Workshop

July 4, 2009 by

Here are the quilts we made at the workshop we took at Cock-a-doodle Quilts

After spending the last four days in pain with a wrenched back, I have finally started working on getting the borders on this quilt.  I wish the workshop had been just a little longer so we could have had time to get the border batting attached.  I don’t think I stitched the first small border on correctly and I had to unstitch the ends to get the batting in properly.  Anyone else have their borders finished yet?

This is a picture of my still life that I made from Marilyn Clarke’s workshop last Saturday. It was a great class and would recommend it to anyone. Lot’s of fun and learned a lot.
