A Very Productive Weekend
Sally Post Floral Sampler that Gay at Sentimental Stitches is posting each week.
We had a group demonstration of the twister quilt technique. This little quilt started out with 20 five inch squares sewn together in a 4 X 5 grid with a 3 inch border, then you cut it all apart with the aid of the twister ruler and sew them back together and get one of these.
I also got this small quilt sewn, it is called pixie sticks because the 2 inch block are made of eight one quarter inch strips. Loved the reproduction fabrics in this little quilt.
I also got a little hand applique completed and another block finished for the red and white quilt.
The week before retreat I got the Heaven and Nature Sings (McKenna Ryan pattern) quilt top completed, it is all layered and ready to start quilting.
So I feel like I have gotten a lot of things done lately. I am all unpacked from retreat, but packing up my hand applique things for an upcoming trip to Texas that will include a visit to the International Quilt Festival and a class with Elly Seinkiewicz. This is not a very good picture of the class project
here and see a better picture of the beautiful peahen we will be working on in this class. I am so excited to be taking this class, and just soak up all of her knowledge about Baltimore Album quilts.
Happy Stitching All,
