and had thought that I would get the border and binding done by now, but see above for explanation.)
Since that weekend, I've gotten started on a machine embroidery BOM - I figure it's about time I use this machine I've got, so I'm doing Goosetracks, by Hoopsisters. And, becasue I happen to have a lot of it in my stash, I'm doing it on silk and am very happy with how it's turning out so far.
Okay, so I only have 4 blocks done, but I'm still liking it!
This past weekend I went to an all weekend workshop put on by the Blue Mountain Quilter's Guild. Ya know, I didn't think I was going to like doing 60 degree angles, but guess what? They are sooooo much fun! I had a blast!
We started with this - take or make 6 small blocks, draft a hexagon to fit, figure out your fillers, then piece them altogether. Great start to the weekend!
|colour is really off on this one, and it really doesn't look quite so wonky! Really!|
Coming up this weekend is getting my 4x6ers postcards done and in the mail - the theme this time round is monochromatic, and I have got an idea or two!
Here are the ones I sent out last time for the circles and triangles theme - wonky paper pieced flying geese - are you surprised?!
