Lessons Learned for finishing a Quilt

This weekend, I spent some time over @Spoonflower’s Greenhouse teaching a quilt finishing class. It went really well. I did my first mini trunk show and walked through some of the techniques I used for each of my quilts. mosaic801c7d9af7bfc0beb83d40db7aaba4f483076714

While talking, I realized how much I have learned in the two years I have been quilting. I could not have done it without the fabulous online resources the quilting community offers. I wanted  to share some of those tutorials and classes, I have enjoyed, with you.

Finish it Friday {11.10.2013}

This week, I have had to spend most of the week on the couch, resting. It wasn’t too bad, but I such lofty sewing plans which did not eventuate. I do have some great opportunities coming up for sewing related activities though:

Lucky,  right?? I am super excited.

On to the finishes for this week….The first of two Scrap-bee-licious October Blocks. This month we have been asked to do two paper-piecing blocks in low volume prints. I used the Wonky Triangles pattern (available on Craftsy.com) for the paper piecing part. This was a great pattern designed by Nancy @ Owens Olivia.

I have to point out the wonky triangle fabric choices as I used some umbrella prints trimmings pack which have such fabulous prints and colors.

Next block (not part of the scrap-bee-licious), is one of my this way, that way block at 15 inches in neutral Kona solids. I am in that kind of mood for low-volumes and neutrals.  Now, I am ready to write up the pattern.

I also finished up my last of my current orders for chair bags, some extra wide Flower garden themed ones. This is going to a little girl, for her birthday, and it will be filled with art and craft materials. How fun!!
