Design Wall Monday–April 27, 2015

I’ve been working on writing a tutorial for making Dresden Plate blocks.  I’ll be teaching it this summer at a Las Vegas retreat.  So I’ve been been working with lots of Dresden parts and just a few blocks. 


Here’s a small quilt that I made a while back for my front door using this method.

Design Wall Monday–April 20, 2015

Well it’s not Monday it’s actually Tuesday but I meant to post this yesterday.

A couple of weeks ago I showed a panel that I purchased with the intent of using it for a One Block Wonder.  Last week I managed to get started.  These are just thrown up on my wall in no particular order but I think you can get the idea.


I actually think it’s going to work.  For me it’s a slow process, but hopefully I’ll have time to work on it off and on. 

Here’s what the panel looks like.

Stitch & Flip with Mary Tabar

On Thursday I attended a workshop with Mary Tabar.  The class was fun but rather confusing at times.  I think by the end I finally got it.  Here are my four blocks.  I still need to machine applique them down but for now they are fused in place.


Today I’m packing for a four day retreat with my friendship group “The Wednesday Wacko’s”.  I’m not sure if this will be going with me but I’ll figure that out this afternoon when I pack.

Until next time . . . . . . . . . . . .

Design Wall Monday–April 6, 2015

I really have been sewing very little.  Sad smile But next week I am going on a retreat with my friendship group, The Wednesday Wackos.  I am soooooooo, looking forward to it.  These are my best friends in the entire world and I get to spend 4 straight days with them, sewing, eating and laughing.  I can hardly wait. 

I’ve started to plan which projects to take with me.  I’ve been wanting to make a OBW (One Block Wonder) for a long time.  I bought fabric I while back to make it but then I saw several of them made using 6 duplicate panels instead of 6 repeats of a fabric.  I decided that’s what I want to try, layering 6 panels and cutting my hexagons from that.

I am fortunate to live near a discount fabric store, M & L.  They have quite a large selection of flat folds for $2.59 per yard.  I found this and I’m really anxious to layer it, cut it and start sewing it together.
