Yesterday I visited the Aitkin Quilt Guild with the new owner of Colorz Quilt Shop, Denise. The guild had several shops from around the state do some vending and I demonstrated the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star ruler for Colorz.
|These are some of the early shoppers. |
It was fun to meet up with so many retreat buddies that I will be sewing with in less than two weeks. I better start planning what I will be bringing along!
|I think I mentioned last week that I was refreshing my memory on the steps to use the Rapid Fire ruler. I decided to put together all of my partially made stars from other demos and classes that I have done and over the weekend I made this little piece using the 3" stars. It's so cute hanging on my design wall--I think I need to at least double it for a small throw.|
|A lot of the stars are make-do, using stray cuts from the ends of my strip sets--I couldn't bear to toss anything.|
|I know it would probably drive most quilter's crazy to put the non-matching parts together, but it doesn't bother me at all--it's kind of what patchwork is all about, isn't it?|
|The second week of the 365 Challenge is complete--only 50 more weeks left--lol!|
|No quilting is being done on my Halloween Mystery quilt loaded on the other side of this table--my bad! Now that I have a couple of the Mrs. Billings borders laid out, they will have to be pieced before I can do any quilting--see how I always shoot myself in the foot when it comes to staying on track!?|
