I have taught two classes at the New Ewe on the past two Saturdays. The first class was the Folded Flying Geese Placemat class and I am posting a photo of Robin's finished project(s).
The other class I taught was a Dresden Sunflower. Robin took that class and here is her wall hanging. She did a great job.
Here are a few other projects that can be made with the Dresden Flower technique:
The next class I will be teaching is from the book, "10-Minute Blocks," on October 10. Then on October 15 I will have the first (of many I hope) Building Blocks Club session. We will be making Log Cabins and variations.
10-Minute Block Quilt Possibility
I entered my Pinwheels and Patches Quilt into an on-line contest at Quilting Gallery. Friday the voting will open. Please check it out and vote for my quilt!
Here is the back of the quilt. I used scraps and pieces that matched the colors of the quilt. I wanted to use what I had rather than purchase more fabric!
I am looking forward to our daughter coming from Taiwan to visit for 10 days. Right now we are hoping the typhoon does not delay or stop her plans.
I have been working on a few more projects. Last Wednesday I went to Inspirations of Art in Grand Rapids to use the Sweet 16 Handiquilter. I got 3 smaller quilt tops quilted and will get the bindings on in the next 2 days. I will add photos when they are done. This is such a great place to work and soak in creative ideas. I will be taking an ICE DYEING class at the end of October. I am looking forward to go back more often to work.
I had an offer from Shutterfly for a free 8 x 8 book. I had quite a few photos of my quilts from the last few years on file for just such an offer. I put the book together and it came two days ago. I am quite happy with it. The only thing I didn't like was that the offers Shutterfly sends via email last for only a few days and I don't always have things ready to do a rush job. This one worked out well. I also got an offer for free cards. I had to pay for shipping, so each card (a pack of 10) came to about 67 cents each--not bad for Christmas cards. I put a cropped photo of one of my Happy Villages wall hangings on the front, a JOY banner on the inside and a hand-sewn weaving on the back. I hope the recipients enjoy them.
