As you know I am taking the 21 Secrets class online...by Connie Hozvicka. I am having a blast so far all the teachers have been awesome. Above is Cathy Bluteau..." Doodling Our Way" .....these are my two pages from her class.
Really enjoyed myself in this class.
My next class was by Tammy Garcia.... "Watercolor Playground"
...Tammy takes you through waterclor basics. I have never played with watercolor...so I was excited to get started:):)
.... word bubbles....
...and then the last page....just playing with watercolors :):)
So, here is the update of where I am on my Blogger BOM. I got the sashing done...then I needed to decide how to set the quilt. I am a huge Kaffe Fassett fan.....so I thought I would go scrappy all around the quilt.......hmmmm....I am feeling like the blocks are lost in all that color...........
....then I decided to go with yellow Kaffe to set the quilt.... better.....but, the room this quilt is going to hang in is lime green....and I think the yellow and lime green will just not work for me.......
.....then I decided to try PINK.....Yes!!!! I'm totally liking the pink!!!!
....and here is the top on my lawn:):) I really like it.
Now ...I'm off to work on the backing, layering, and quilting:):)
Hello Blog land :):) I am still trying to kick some of my UFO's to the curb :):) Today I pulled out my Blogger's BOM...to get it ready for sashing and piecing. I stuck them all up on my board to figure out how??? I wanted to piece them together....and decided to put them on point...I love quilts that are on point.
I LOVE this black and green polka-dot from the Kaffe Fassett line!!! Perfect for sashing!!!
....now, cornerstones or straight sash?????
Yep....I definitely like the cornerstones a lot!!!!
I didn't have enough blocks for this lay out...I was one block short....so, one of my favorite Kaffe's became the center of this quilt:))
.....and I'm decided to show you that I can never seem to quilt just one quilt at a time!!!! I always have at least two quilts I'm sewing at the same time.
These little baskets made it into the mix of my sewing the BOM together today!! So, when I am done sewing this top together...these little blocks will be done , and any other project I want to throw in the mix:):) That's me...always the multitasking queen :):)
