If you are ready for some fun new project designs, you should hop on over to the Moda blog to hop on the bus for their latest blog hop. The thing that I like best about the Moda blog hops is that their designers all share information about themselves. Makes them seem like real people!
I made a small sample of some special little fabric pictures--
and I handed out instructions and material to make the first block, plus ideas on changing the block size and a sample layout. Can't wait to see if we have some show-and-tell of these blocks at our April meeting!
Another project that this group was offered last year was a series of 12 star blocks. Each 6" star block was set in the center of a bigger (12") star. Just to inspire some more creativity, I pulled together 4 samples of setting the 12 blocks together into a quilt. I used the Electric Quilt program to make the diagrams and figured out the yardage that might be needed--
Working with the EQ programs is easy to learn and with a little practice, yields great results!
Maybe you would like to join our next Circle of Quilters meeting on April 12! Just give us a call and tell us you want to be added to the gang! 651-429-1039
Sue N. gave a go at machine embroidery today in the Color Block Pouches class.
She used one of the store machines and made good use of coaching by Linda and Jeanne. Success! This might be the start of something wonderful! Interested in trying some machine embroidery? Give the Bernina ladies a buzz at 651-429-6500.
