So I have some exciting things coming up! I’m leaving tonight for Sew OK and I’m so excited that I can barely stand it. I get to take a class from Carolyn Friedlander. Do you remember my gorgeous Local Quilt? She designed it! There’s a lot of other fun things happening, too, like a bus trip and a lot of open sewing time. I’m hoping to be very productive. Oklahoma City is only a five hour drive, so we’re leaving tonight after work! I’m sure I’ll have a recap post next week.
Another exciting thing…I have some upcoming classes that I’m teaching. Check out the Classes page to see more info. I’m also very excited for these because I love watching other people learn to make things that I love. I really love the Date Night Dress. I think I said in a previous post that it makes me feel pretty when I wear it.
Finally, before I left for Sew OK, I wanted to finish up this month’s bee block so I could focus on other things at the retreat. So here it goes…
This is the Overlapping Squares block. The tutorial is from The Modern Quilt Guild. I have a lot of blue and green so this was a good block for me. Technically, I could have picked any color, but I loved the colors in the original block and I have lots of them.
This is wonky and wavy log cabin block with a plus in the middle. BAM! How about that? This was a lot of fun and we discovered the key to good waves is a small rotary cutter. I love my 28mm Olfa. No, I am not paid to say that.
Ok. So I’m kind of an idiot and didn’t read directions appropriately for these. Luckily, Jaime is cool and understands and I offered to help her with more of these during a sewing day. I didn’t tape some pieces together so things came out weird. There are seams where there should’t be seams. Like I said…I’m a idiot. I think they are still pretty and the other ones that I help her make will be even prettier.
Finally, these are for a Scrappy Bee member. They were super easy and simple, but I loved picking the colors for them. The pink one is my favorite! I want to use those two prints EVERYWHERE.
And there you go. I’m now caught up on bee block and I can spend my time at Sew OK working on things for me. Well, most of my time. I do have one thing I have to do for something else, but everything else is just for me! 🙂
