Quilt Club

Well Youngest is fine this morning, but I did manage to get him into bed by 9.00pm so he has had a good night’s sleep.  Treacle is still moping about so I have banned her from Wednesday Wag today and told her she has to rest!

I did manage to get to Quilt Club on Monday and it was great to go.  After a very short show and tell of two ladies (unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures) we had a lesson on 3-D quilting.  Something I realised I had seen on quilts but not appreciated as being 3-D. 

Picture from Delaware Quilts (http://delawarequilts.com/) This site is brilliant if you need help with a block.  My block sort of looked like this after I had finished but we did not have any irons on to press them.  But I think once you get the hang of it, they could be quick to make.

Finished 3D Flying Geese quilt block3-D Flying Geese was the other block we got to have a go at.  This picture is from http://www.generations-quilt-patterns.com where there is a tutorial of how to make them.  Mine  turned out really well and I think this would be a great project for your scrap bin.  There are lots of You Tube tutorials as well, if you are a visual learner.

It was great to do something creative without the phone, children or dog interrupting!!!!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday.

Hugs, Susie x
