Enjoyed a weekend away with friends, but was allowed to be productive too!
Here is Block #3 - Tulips in my Pam Bono Out of the Darkness quilt.
I also finished this little pot holder made with the Sashiko technique. My first Sashiko project. Actually enjoyed it since the stitching goes so quickly. I started this in a class last weekend from Pepper Cory at EESchenck's Spring Trends event in Portland. Had I realized what we were stenciling was going to turn into a potholder, I might not have chosen a circular design or 3 or 6 sided design, but none the less, I liked the hearts of the stencils available to choose from and ended up creating this.
I even got the sleeve sewn onto my Charmed Network - Eva version which will be in the Tri-City Quilter's "Stitchin' Stars" quilt show March 30 and 31. I'll also have "Spinner" --the EQ BOM layout winner (which still needs to be bound YOWZA! but was left drying in its blocked position on Friday, but I did get the piping made) and "1892 Rondure" --my McCalls Quilt Design Star 2011 round 1 entry.
Check out other BOM's progress at Lyn's What A Hoot linkup and other modern finishes at Canoe Ridge Creations.
