Happy Valentine's Day


I've been busy this past week.  Starting first with a demonstration at Sunshine Quilt Guild on "Multiple Techniques to Create Flying Geese Units".  The three 15 minute demos went very well.  I prepared visual aids to explain six of them.  


Sunshine Quilt Guild will once again participate in a multi-Guild Retreat in May.  This year my Mom and I will participate for the first time.  One of the participants from our guild has assembled a BOM that is either a pieced or applique block.  Mom will get the pieced and I will do the applique.


Wednesday had me working on Konstitution Month 2 HSTs.  I have them all sewn.  Need yet to cut them apart from the Triangles on a Roll paper, trim the ears, finger press open, and iron.


Thursday evening I was gathering the supplies for Scrappy Mountains Majesty workshop on Friday.  It is great to see my friend Bonnie when she's out lecturing and teaching.  These were the first of the units assembled.  The pattern calls for a starting block of 8".  Mine started out at 5".  I am using HSTs from a swap I coordinated a while back.  It is real nice to use these and how convenient for this pattern.


There are several layouts shown in the free pattern except this one.


Bonnie showed it during the workshop and since I have such a scrappy set of blocks this layout seems quite appropriate.  I'm not certain of the finished size yet.  I have to get projects off the design wall for room to play!


I am working diligently on my February UFO.  I have the blue blocks done and stitching now on the red blocks.  Konstellation and Krown is starting to take shape.  I hope you check out more projects through the links today aPatchwork Times.

Busy, busy, lovely fabrics and designs. Have a great week.Down here still very hot, another big quake in Christchurch yesterday, where the big one in February 2011 was. I am sure everyone there will be very nervous.

You did an outstanding job on your visual display of flying geese, watch out they will be asking more of you, your such a pro at training. Still looking forward to the retreat in May, better send me the block that I am supposed to have finished, lol, I am not as fast as you. lol
I know you enjoyed your visit with Bonnie Hunter, looked on her blog for photo, but failed to see it. I am going to check it out again, may have just missed it.
Yes, it looks like your binding is waiting for you, tell DH to get some non violent flicks and you can join him in the tv room.

Your presentation board looks fabulous. Congratulations on what I'm sure was a success! You are scootin' right along on your projects, and good luck with the bindings!

Looks like you did an excellent job on your presentation, which comes as no surprise!
How fun that your Mom will be able to participate with you on the retreat!
I really like the "barn raising" type layout for your mountain blocks.
How do you ever make so much progress on so many different patterns at a time?
