|Crazy as a Bird Dog|
We first prepared our fabrics with iron and starch. Stacked our fabrics, ironed on our freezer paper template and began cutting out the pieces. First with the frame parts (purple), then stack, iron freezer paper template pumpkin parts (orange), and finally stack, iron freezer paper template eyes, nose, and mouth (gold). I had three Jacks assembled by the end of the four hour workshop.
Julanne went over the Candy Corn border, but that is to be done after all the pumpkins are finished. Since the Candy Corn assembly is a bit tricky those not familiar with Buggy Barn patterns were invited to come back to one of the "Club" evenings if we needed help. I think I may have it figured out, but will work on it before September 1st to make sure I don't need more guidance.
So now there is a plan to get two of the three Buggy Barn projects complete. Julanne says that the Crazy as a Bird Dog pattern is a workshop she'll be doing in 2012. Of course that means I'll be signing up!
Best of all making Crazy Jacks used my stash all except one purple FQ (Buggy Barn Patterns are designed for FQs). Just love to use up that stash!
Tomorrow I'll be busy with Kerry finishing the San Diego Humane Society's 25th Annual Fur Ball Fundraiser quilt "Dancing with the Dogs". You remember the one with Snoopy Dancing. Pictures on Sunday!
By the way, I've added to my Birthday/Christmas Wish List Celebrated Craziness Book Patterns found on the Buggy Barn website for $24.00. I'm interested in making the Today is your Birthday project.
