Today started by rolling out of bed, to make some yummy food for a surprise birthday party to be held after the NYC Metro Mod quilters meeting. I had not been in ages, so it was lovely to see all the lovely quilters and their inspiring works! I sat and hand pieced my little boy britches blocks, ( from Linda's book Treasures from the barn) as my "guilty little pleasure." By that I mean, "A project that has no deadline!" What a treat! My Hand dandy sewing case, which you can make, is available at my website shop should you need to decorate your own!
I was meeting Helen at the meeting also, as she is the Birthday girl! Helen has claimed many in our group as her adopted "Quilt daughters"... So here is Lisa and I with our "Quilt Mom"
Here are all my blocks so far... All hand pieced... I usually only get time to do these while I am flying! So it will be awhile before I get these done! If you were a student of mine in the DWR class in AQC, in Melbourne, these are the fabrics you shared with me! Your two fabrics, are making one block each. I just love them!
Beatrice made Helen an amazing birthday cake! Here the candles have been extinguished! Happy Birthday HELEN!
Then I got all inspired, and I went to CUT some pretty Mostly Manor Fabrics.
(purchase in my shop of request at your LQS)
I actually have a huge project I am SUPPOSED to be doing.. but....
Using my Large Hexagon template, from the Large Hex and Triangle acrylic template set, that I sell in my website shop... I quickly cut out this KING size quilt...
Large Clear template, to see though, great for fussy cutting, and turning old blocks into amazing quilts. ( do you ISPY any made fabric in this quilt?)
Now, back to the big project I was to be working on... Happy Mothers Day!
