I don’t think ‘time flies as you’re having fun’ more ‘time passes at warp speed whether you’re having fun or not!’ these days. I’m sure last Wednesday was only yesterday at any rate. Anywho, for those following the bath saga, it can’t be fixed, it will need to be replaced. Let’s not dwell on that…
On the sewing front it’s been all about gearing up for my first class at The Stitchery tomorrow! I’ve created a whole pile of class samples, and gathered more examples than was perhaps strictly necessary, but I’m all set. I think. Wish me luck! I also made a couple of bee blocks, and then I did a bit of playing on Sunday because I just needed a bit of a time out. In my mind it looks great, not so sure how it will look in reality ;o)
Finishes This Week:
I’m going to call the class samples a finish, even though I don’t have a useable quilt, because this is all they will ever be (until the class is retired at any rate!) This is the finished top, but I have step outs of all the component parts too in identical fabric (since I happened to have a half yard bundle to work with rather than FQs, it seemed sensible to use the same ones) I even have little 12″ block versions for when I come to demo the quilting part. Am I overthinking this?! It is a beginner’s class though… (the top is square BTW, it’s just that it was a deceptively windy day!)
I did some super easy Stitch Tease bee blocks for the lovely Cindy:
In Progress This Week:
This lot has been cut up. It’s not a secret, I just don’t have anything more tangible to show right now! I can tell you that in my head it will look like prayer flags, in reality on the other hand… In this photo I was asking for votes on the background colour from those on the bottom – in the end I went with the Essex linen, bottom left, although I think I might need to order some more, but we’ll see, nothing like a game of fabric chicken to rev you up ;o) I’ve ditched the 4 fabrics on the right in the 2nd row too, as they were too close to the background. Well, I ditched them as flags at least, they may appear elsewhere…
To Be Worked On This Week:
I’m off up north to see the Narcoleptic’s New Cupboard for the bank holiday weekend, so beyond taking some photies, I’m promising nothing!
Hope you all have a great week! Linking up with Lee and the gang:
I missed the bath saga post but look at it this way, you'll have a bright shiny new bath (whatever part needs replacing) ?
That star must be enormous and the flags are intriguing. I look forward to seeing what you do with those coloured squares and the grey linen.
I love these one big block quilts – have to try one. Good luck with your class (and with replacing the bath)!
I think the finished top is gorgeous Katy – and eminently do-able for a beginner class with your wonderful tutelage.
Had to laugh at you playing fabric chicken because Im sure we’ve all been there!
Gorgeous giant star! Those plus blocks are a favourite ; )
Such happy colours in your giant star. Hope you enjoy teaching the class.
Love that big star! And the little crosses! So cute.
looking forward to hearing all about the class in person! (dont believe for one minute that you'll turn up with no sewing project…) 🙂
Good luck for tomorrow and give S a big hug from me! Jxo
GAHHHHH! The Bathe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bet you were wonderful teaching your class! I know they were thrilled to have you 🙂
Have a blast this weekend!! Woo!!
It sounds like your class is well-prepped! Loving the newly cut project!
The the big lone star – when dies the class do its world tour?
