Weekend of Fun

 


Today is National Sew A Jelly Roll Day so take some time to play.  There are a lot of free patterns on-line or make it up as you go.  No Jelly Roll!  Make Your own by pulling some fabrics and cut some 2.5" strips.  And make it a weekend of fun sewing - why just one day.


Then get ready for some Fall Project(s) inspiration.  My favorite season and colors.

Sewingly Your,

Quilt Guild Fun

 


On Saturday I taught the minature selvedge piece to members of The Cairo Piecemakers quilt guild.  We talked about the selvedge and I had pieces from early fabrics right up to the newest lines - simple to works of art.   



A Tula Pink lover and I love how she chose the Tabby Road and her silohouette was a kitty.


Some great color going on here and she is planning a herd of deer across the piece.


Another - many  that were so different due to the fabric stashes  used by each member and silohouettes again represented the quilter.  There were butterflies, cats, several birds, animals, and Fall fruits.


AND on Tuesday my quilt guild - Schoharie Valley Piecemakers - had a class on reverse dyeing.  I will share more on that as I get more photos sent to me.

Sewingly Yours,

Scrappy Wednesday

 


Yes, I know it's Thursday but this didn't schedule post so had to release it a day late.  

Getting things ready for a Saturday class on working with selvedge.  Step outs, supplies, notes. props, etc....


This is the little piece that started it all, but new selvedge, colors and a different sillohette is changing the sample piece.  Looking forward to an in-person class.

Sewingly Yours,
