Busy Little bees!
Shelly, me and Andrea made a fabulous mess this past weekend.
We had some machine quilting lessons from Shelly. She made me some geese for my blue green quilt! Love them!We made improv tops to practice our machine quilting skills, and made some improv tree blocks too...
We worked on some Sis Boom POW blocks with Jennifer Paganelli fabrics.
this is my second block, Again trying something I've never done before, a dresden and will applique it down on the block.
I will be cutting up the fabrics this week, to be sent out by Friday! (fingers crossed)
It's going to be one colorful quilt!
I've never had a big sewing weekend like this before. I highly recommend it! Picking each others brains about how to do things, or what works and doesn't has already made me feel like a better quilter... And who doesn't like some good old chatty time!
So, if your making the Donation applique blocks, try something new! get creative! It's good to try some new things, when you are making just one or two blocks, instead of getting overwhelmed by a huge quilt...
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
We had such a great time.
Thanks Shelly for schlepping your sewing machine up to NY!
And you too Andrea! up and down subway stairs is no easy feet either!
I will be putting together the Pixie Dust blocks this week. Yippeee! They look so great!
