We have talked and laughed more than we’ve sewed but here are Connie’s two finished blocks.
Here is what I got done.
Here are Rose’s blocks so far.
Rose brought us fabric strips that she cut with her die cutter, the Accuquilt Go. Rose suggested going to their website to watch the tutorial. I cannot give you any information about it since I have no experience using one successfully but Rose loves hers!
Rose wanted Ernie Joe Mauer to “bless” her quilt by the same name – see the backing fabric?
Bill and Rose are on their way home to Illinois – we had a fun “mini” camp. Connie and I both came away with more ideas and inspiration than we had prior to Rose’s visit. That means more unfinished projects – ugh! But oh so much fun, too.
I believe I will start the Christmas “sew along” on Monday so we will be finished before December 1. Our books arrived so yours won’t be far behind. Have a great weekend, everybody!
I feel like an old lady – I’ve just gotten up from my 2 hour afternoon “nap”! Still am wiped out after I do any little thing like housework, laundry, litter boxes but that all has to be done. Rick is home for the weekend so I’ll try to rest more while he’s here.
This has been my sewing therapy – my low volume scrap vortex. This does not require any thinking on my part so I can just sit and sew pieces into strips, strips into units, units into blocks, trimming as I go. It’s up on the design wall now and I just have to add fillers to get sections to meet. And it will be whatever size I end up with. I love sewing like this! I learned this technique from Crazy Mom who has a great tutorial on her website if you’d like to give it a try.
Keep working on your rugs. I’ll watch the comments and my email very closely for questions. I don’t want you to get hung up all weekend. Happy rug twining, All!
