Because I finished up my plaid projects, I think today will be a good day to play in this newly gifted tote of fabric. I have several new totes and bags that I picked up last week and yet to look thru. This one intriqued me because I spotted MARCUS! Judy Rothermel and Howard Marcus - favs. Some Shelborn Museum collection pieces. Debbie Beaves and Jinny Beyer for RJR fabrics. Oh I'm giddy!
I see some Sawtooth Stars and once worked down into smaller pieces, some floating stars.
I forgot to show some pictures from the Button Boats class I taught.
The Cairo Piecemakers guild have a lovely room to use at their local library in Cairo, NY.
I loved Deb's little lamp. There is very little machine stitching to these cute boats.
Because the Bosal product now comes with two-sided fuseable, you can elliminate two steps (and products needed) in this project, making them much easier and faster to make.
You only need two 10" squares of coordinating fabrics - a scrap project. You could easily make these in 15 minutes, but we spent a little over an hour. You can only work as fast as the slowest person in the class. We also had a couple of machine problems to resolve along the way (see the machine manual out). And some discussion time was spent over the pressing station as a number of the ladies had never used a fuseable product before.
Some completed the entire project and others decided to do the end finishes at home after we discussed several options for that step. A nice little project with a super sweet quild. I enjoyed the evening very much - and I got gifted a bag of scraps by one lovely participant.
