I am pondering the phenomenon that are fabric scraps. At present I have three on-going scrap projects. The wonder is that my scrap bins are not emptying! What is it with scraps? Has anyone ever run out of scraps?

Saturday Quilting Bring and Share (95)

Welcome to Saturday(ish) Quilting Bring & Share! Bring along your project(s) and share in some of the latest inspiration circulating through the Worldwide Quilting Community. 😀

My projects have been quite varied this week but my main focus has been on teaching the last session of the Beginners Course to two classes on Saturday. I feel so privileged to have seen these newbie patchwork quilters tackle all the stages of making a patchwork quilt with such determination and then to be rewarded by seeing their smiles as the near-completed quilts were put on parade:

Isn’t it amazing to see a patchwork pattern made in seven colourways? If you click on the photos you’ll be able to see the variety of quilting patterns used as well. Hard to believe that these are all first quilts 🙂 It was especially encouraging to hear everyone’s plans for their next quilts!

I used my fourth version of the Dashing Stars quilt and one of the sample quilts for the Two Ways to Build a Log Cabin workshop as my demo quilts for the classes. In this final class we were squaring up our quilts and making and attaching binding. So my end of weekend project is to finish stitching down the bindings on both these quilts…

As the weekend is coming to a close I’ll share just a couple links into the Worldwide Quilting Community (if you’d like to find more inspiration click over to my Pins of the Week board on Pinterest):

Sharon has boosted her sewing room productivity by sticking to her resolve to sew every day. Her latest finish is a simple but effective square-in-a-square quilt with a daisy free motion quilt design that compliments the fabrics and patchwork really well.

Melony has designed her own range of fabrics! The modern floral designs on Spring-fresh shades of green, pink and purple look lovely. Take a look on her blog or click straight over to her Etsy shop for a peek!

Happy Stitching!

Allison

I spent Saturday at Purple Stitches teaching two classes the basics of quilting as part of the Beginners Course. I’m blown away by the beautiful quilts being constructed. A bit of serendipity when I got home and checked through my emails: Christ Watson has published a great post about quilting and binding as part of her ‘Terrace Tiles’ QAL,packed full of expert tips and a video showing
