Scrap Attack Strings QAL - show and tell number 4



Last month I was lucky enough to win a gorgeous charm pack from http://sewlux.blogspot.co.nz/2012/05/scrap-attack-strings-qal-show-tell-4.html.
Thank you Chrissy.
This spurred me on to make a lot more of my string blocks.  I have completed 49 and sewn them all together.  I ran out of usable white fabric so decided this would be enough for me.  I am not sure what I will do with it next but have been fussy cutting the flowers that I have sitting on the flimsy.  I still have a few more to cut out.  I am thinking a nice floral border would look nice - perhaps a nice hawaiian print.

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Spring"
"Vintage"        
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.

Light Up Your Landscape - Gloria Loughman Class

A couple of weeks ago I took part in my first ever quilt class.  It was run by Gloria Loughman http://www.glorialoughman.com/
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am delighted with what I have produced.  I am not going to bind it but rather put facings on the back as Gloria taught us.  This was the first time I had used a walking foot.
There were 20 in the class and we all produced very different pieces.  I am noe keen to get her books and try some of her other methods of constructing quilts.
