Home Ec. Class!

A quick note for my LA based readers…

I’m teaching a patchwork pillow class for Home Ec. at Reform School on June 22nd, this coming Monday evening.  Maybe you’re interested?  Check out more details or sign up here! We’ll be making log cabin blocks and chatting about improvisationally piecing them.  And then we’ll turn them into a pretty pillow!

I would love to see you there!

This and that.

Is what my weekend sewing was filled with!

I pulled fabrics for a new quilt.  I’ve decided to completely indulge my love of red & aqua.  I haven’t made a full quilt in only those colors before, so it’s time!

Then I got started on some blocks!

I got a fat quarter of the amazing Paint By Number Birds in a swap with Ashley and have already cut into it!

I am not a fabric horder. Ok, if you saw my stash right now you’d probably disagree ’cause it’s big. But now that my job is over, I’m back on the buying ban (“except solids and batting!” – a phrase my husband hears over and over!) and I am gonna use my stash like crazy. Sometimes once it’s gone I miss an out of print fabric, but mostly if I use a fabric in a number of quilts, usually I feel like I’ve had my time with it. And plus, there’s always so much new fabric to focus on!!

Anyhow – otherwise, this weekend I made the back for my Block Party quilt. Still waiting on two last blocks but am gonna put this baby together the second I get ‘em!

And lastly I caught up on my last due bee block! This one is for Sew Connected 2.

Hope that you all have great weeks. I know that I will since unemployment is back and that means sewing sewing sewing sewing and a bit more… well… sewing!

Sunny fabric!

Elizabeth sent me some Heather Ross fabrics for no reason other than that she’s just so so nice!!

And the last thing that makes me happy?  Friday! It’s Friday!  Today is my last day on my latest job (I’m freelance) and I feel like school’s out for summer! Wheee! Hope that you all have wonderful weekends!
