It’s been a very busy week so I haven’t had much time to take pictures of the quilts I have been working on. The constant rain the past two weeks hasn’t helped that either! On Tuesday we had our guild meeting which is a full day of activities and on Thursday I taught a class on how to paper piece. Then on Saturday our guild had a 6 Hour Quilt workshop, we worked with a partner and all the groups finished two quilt in less than 5 hours. I also learnt how to make fabric bowls that you use as a hot pad around a bowl that you put in the microwave. My boys are always commenting how hot bowls get in the microwave when reheating leftovers so I know they will get a lot of use here. I have made 3 sets since last night!! I tend to get obsessed about a craft when I’m first taught it. I’ll be teaching this project at our next guild meeting in November and will post a tutorial on my blog after that as it is such a great idea and would make great xmas gifts.
The quilt above is Lynn’s Island Sunrise quilt that she made at the guild’s Judy Niemeyer workshop last month. I know I’ll probably be getting a few of these so decided to start numbering them! Lynn wanted a overall design so the piecing can shine.
We decided on the Curlz panto and I had a great Lava variegated thread in teal and beige that blended beautifully into all the fabrics. That is always a challenge when doing an all-over with light and dark fabrics.
I just love the colors in Lynn’s quilt, teal and brown are one of my favourite combinations.
