Whooping Friday

I wasn't able to attend our local Guild's class on One-Block Wonders back in May, but I had the book and the fabrics .  Sometimes after playing in so many scraps, you have to play with new.  It was time to tackle this.

These are my fabrics -  'Cascade Meadow' by Connecting Threads with a pile of cuttings.  I asked a guild member who had attended the class to come teach me.  Yes I could have just watched U-Tubes or found tutorials on-line, but I wanted to use a better resource.  Thank You Emily for helping out and getting me on to a good start with this project.

Here are some of the blocks so far - you only make them in 'halves' to aid in the arranging/design and the final stitching process.

I have most of the blocks ready, just that small pile to zip thru the machine.  Then the design arranging begins!  I would like to make a good attempt on a flimsy today as I am off to two quilt shows tomorrow.  Yup, two!!  With a stop at a local quilt shop inbetween.  I'll be sure to have my camera charged and share the lovely day.

Sewingly Yours,
