Remember, I said I was going to play with these left-over blocks from the Orca Bay Quilt?
I made 3 zipper bags with the left-over blocks from Orca Bay. It was a project I started this year and I finished it this year! They didn’t turn into UFOs!
I am almost finished quilting this scrappy bargello. A smaller version of the one I finished in 2016.
Sewing with Friends
is always fun! A couple of people invited me to sew with their group this past weekend. It was great fun and I met some more talented quilters.
I didn’t take a lot of photos … but the one with the black background was one lady’s first quilt. She did an awesome job with the appliqué! If you read my blog often, you’ll know that I’m not fond of appliqué: to the point I call it crap-liqué. I was struck with awe and am still shaking my head thinking … “this was her first quilt?”
Then J. used her serger to put this quilt together. It was made with lovely shimmery fabric and it was serged to prevent it from fraying. As it was, there was gold fluff almost everywhere! (She was teased about this!) Now, I didn’t get a picture of the finished top … just the segment in progress. She had added another strip to both sides of the top. In the first small picture, I attempted to get the “shimmer” … but I’m not that great at taking realistic pictures. The 2nd small picture is the back. (What is showing as pink is actually red …)
And the good news? I get to sew with friends again this Friday! YEAH!!
