First little bit of sewing since returning from QuiltCon:
|February MCM Bee block|
Already I'm behind in my bee blocks. Cindy requested the winged square block for February's Mid-Century Modern Bee block. I enjoyed selecting the fabrics for this one, and the tutorial is easy to follow. I had to throw in a shot cotton for Cindy. Can you spot it?
Here's a little bit of sewing done at QuiltCon:
Elizabeth's Marmalade quilt making class was only a half day. After making my templates, I managed to piece two diamond blocks. I am looking forward to more strip piecing now that I have access to my full stash of fabric.
I showed these paper piecing blocks from Penny's class before, but I can't resist showing them again. The cupcake is the only one paper pieced; the others were made with the freezer paper technique. We even learned to stitch y- seams. Not bad for a beginner.
More y-seam stitching in Jacquie's machine pieced hexagon class. I mentioned before that I did more talking than sewing in this class (which was also a half-day class), but I did pay attention to the teacher and learned the technique ;-) Today I did more hexagon fabric cutting for another project I have in mind.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy stitching,
