|This is NOT the block we will make Friday, this is from our last class. I made this little quilt for the LQSVSG.|
This Friday, August 16th will be our Perfect Paper Piecing Class. We will be making a new block this Friday. I will not post the pattern until late Friday, but it will be available at the class. For the block we will be making, you will need 4 different fabrics plus a background fabric.
We will be making the block shown below, The Woven Star. This example uses only three fabrics, 2 for the star and 1 for the background. For class we will be using up to 4 for the star and 1 for the background.
This is not a difficult block to make, but you must pay attention to placement as you go along. We will discuss some tips for making that easier in class and I will post them this weekend along with samples of class work.
So a couple weeks ago, I decided to start a Mug Rug Swap on Ipernity! I put up this invitation on Flickr, Ipernity and FaceBook
I've had a great initial response! We have 17 folks signed up for the first swap!!! What fun. Everyone is busy creating their inspirational mosaics. There are currently 30 folks in the group, some are watching this first round and will jump in on future rounds. I hope you will come check us out, join the group and have some creative fun with us!!!
Whether you are a veteran quilter or a newbie...everyone is welcome. The rule of thumb is to make something to the best of your ability, something you would be proud to have your name associated with.
Our first swap is a Fall/Halloween theme. The mosaics are fun to look at. There are several great options and directions for people to head in. It's going to be fun to see what everyone creates!
Come join the Mug Rug Swap at Ipernity!
