I missed last Monday's post but made sure I caught up this week. In my last post I told you about Block Party Sampler quilt I was working on. It is now finished and the post is here. I had a very successful trip to Pittsburg, KS and Joplin, MO. I had access to post last week but was just too tired to do so.
On my design wall today is the Twist and Shout top (sorry, blogspot is turning my photo) from pattern by Lyn Brown. It's really a neat way to get a quilt on point. I'd seen this before in an old book at home with rail fence blocks but didn't want to cut up my blocks after sewing into a top so I forgot about it. Now, why was it so easy to cut just plain ole squares? I selected this pattern for the scrap quilting club's first project.
My scrap quilting club met Saturday and we swapped the Bento Box quarters. My generally "bright" quilt turned into something not too bright and not too sedated. I really like getting fabrics from swaps. This photo is of the scrappy version. My blocks are sewn with sashing in the middle. I still have to add a border in the beige fabric before adding the red print as the final border.
And here is the Batiks only quarters we swapped. My scrap quilting club is doing an awesome job? Now I have to figure out how I want the second top pieced...
Again, another scrap quilting club project. We are working on a major project over a few months. We have until the end of May to make 305 3.5" 4-patches. I started on mine yesterday and made 110 units that need to be pressed open. I have a few more 2-piece sections ready for the next batch. These were all made from 2" squares and 2" strips I had already cut that was stored in my studio.
I worked on some other projects but don't have photos of them, so that's all for now. To see more design walls, go visit Patchwork Times.
