I'm back from my camping trip:)
We had so much fun at the lake
with our friends!!
Now I'm rested...
and ready to get back in my studio
for more fun.
Today is week 4 of
I wanted to show you some of the blocks that will be going into a lap size quilt.
I am making 20 blocks total for the quilt and I have most of them done...
but today I'm only showing you
9 of them...because that's how many will fit on the design board in my studio!
Below are close ups of a few favorite's.
Are you all still having fun
sewing your great grannies?
Beside's being fun and addictive...
another plus is that I am
really making a big dent
in my leftover pre cuts.
I love me a quilt made from leftovers!!!
Okay...onto another tip.
Remember the tutorial that I did a while back on making my design boards?
I don't know if I told you that I often make two of the same size to use
in transporting my blocks when I go
on retreat or sew day...
But they work great for that too!
I just sandwich my blocks in-between
the two boards so that they will
lay flat and stay protected during travel.
In the past I have always tied ribbon around the two boards to hold them together...
but a while ago...
I came across these giant rubber bands
in the office supplies at Target...
And I just knew that they would be
perfect to use instead of ribbon!
They cost only 3.00 and there are
several different designs and colors.
In my next post...
I'll show you a new project that
I worked on while camping...
the above photo is a sneak peek:)
have a quilty kind of day!
