|I picked out the errant piece, slip stitched in the replacement piece, and finished up the non-quilted area on my domestic machine. Whew--that was a bit of a heart--stopper!|
|And here is a better photo of the completed quilt--so big!!!|
|....and the label.|
|Even though I had vowed not to do anymore sampler quilts, I pulled these scraps of fabric from my stash to make some 4" x 5" Anthology blocks.|
|Using the Amazon free preview of the book, I sewed up the first five blocks and knew I was hooked---they're pretty addictive!|
|So, of course I ordered the book. |
I'm planning to do the blocks in the order they are presented. My colors are pretty much like the Anthology, aside from the pink. I don't have much pink in my stash, so I am substituting yellow.
|Sssshhh...I shouldn't admit this, but there are over 800 blue and cream half square triangles in this bin....along with a bazillion cream colored strips, 80+ 4.5" squares of phone book paper, a Bonnie Hunter book and Bonnie's new ruler.|
Yes!!! I am taking a class in August with Bonnie Hunter--yeehaw!!I may have jumped the gun on making all those HST's, but I was so excited (and I also wanted to use up a package of triangle paper---that's my excuse). I know Bonnie will show us how to use her ruler to make triangles, and I still need about 60 more, so I will be plenty busy in class. Plus there are a lot of string blocks to be sewn. I'll finally be making that Jamestown Landing quilt that has been on my bucket list for years!
|While tidying up (yeah, I do that sometimes!) I found these hourglass blocks. I'm not sure when or why I made them, so I've been playing around--maybe a mug rug??|
