Ok......isn't this the cutest fish and of course cutest granddaughter you've ever seen?
This is my granddaughter Emily who just turned 14 last Friday. She is in 8th grade at Oak Middle School and believe it or not, they still offer Home EC. She had told me they were making pillows but I never imagined it would be so darn cute. It is made out of felt and sewn primarily by hand. She did a very nice chain stitch for all the black lines. Emily loves to sew and has made a couple of quilts and loads of pillows but never anything this cute.

Close up of some of the blocks
If your interested in the kit to make this quilt, please email me at email@example.com and I'll send you the information.
Now I'm off to find backing and resume working on another sample.

So here's the finished quilt top. I love sewing curves and it's a really fast and easy way to make an interesting quilt top. I used the 7" "Crazy Curves" templates for the center blocks. Now I have to quilt it. I want to do something simple that will wear well since I have no idea where it may end up.

The Saturday following the meeting I taught a workshop for 21 guild members. They are fortunate to be able to use a Home EC. classroom at the local high school. I taught my pattern "Magical Slice and Dice". Here is a picture of the project board I put together for the class.
There was a wide range of fabrics used to make the blocks and each and every one of them is a winner. Here is a photo of just some of the blocks made that day. It was so much fun seeing all the different combinations. I'm hoping that I will be able to get pictures of many of the finished quilts.
This is the classroom with everyone hard at work.

I spent the afternoon getting the top together. I still need to add the outside border, quilt and bind it but I'm really pleased with how it's turning out. I'm using an Alexander Henry fabric called Abbey Road for the blocks.
I'd like to have it finished so that I can show it at the TLC Quilt Guild in Covina, California. I'll be speaking at their meeting Thursday night and teaching an all day workshop on Saturday. The project for Saturday's workshop is "Magical Slice and Dice". I'm very excited about having the opportunity to share my quilts and my quilting journey with various guilds. It's a great way to promote Two Wacky Women, a business that my Marilyn and I have had for several years.
