Wendy, love your wall hanging.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Cute as can be!

I finished my granddaughters quilt and almost cried when I put in that very last stitch. My adrenaline struck and I could not believe it was finally finished. Have you ever felt like this when you finish a quilt? Or is it just me?
Oh yes! A few years back I made a king-sized double wedding ring quilt entirely hand stitched. I enjoyed every minute of the process but when I finally put it on the bed, I was so hyped I just wanted to dance. Now that I have retired and can work on my UFO's, it is exciting to be able to work toward the finish line on each one.
Yes Debra, it is a pretty nice rush when I finish a quilt
Good for you Wendy! It's lovely, I like the binding, good job!
Debra, I haven't "finished" a quilt in so long that I forgot the feeling, but yes.
Wendy really cute wallhanging.
I need to find boarder fabrics for my lap quilts. The fabric is quite old and it will be a challenge to find anything. Fortunately it is in flannel and the colors are fall/warm so it's easier than if I had contemporary fabric
check connecting threads- nice colors....
I redid the Augusta block on Loyal Union Sampler for probably the 100th time, and finally, it is acceptable to me, although not perfect. For this, I think Jacy's great instruction.
I did work on a quilt yesterday, but nothing as complicated at a double wedding ring or a loyal union sampler. The guild offered a class taught by Heather Mulder Peterson on her new ruler called the "Triangler" which helps you created triangle designs that are normally paper pieced. Hers go together more quickly by cutting the triangles from plain strips or sewn strip sets. Here are some pics from our day...
Here is Heather helping my friend Terri. Heather's samples are hanging on the wall in the back.
Heather also shared some machine applique tips. More of her samples behind her...
Kathy is cutting triangles from batik strip sets.
Her pieces go together to make this design. I remember this one from my Craftsy paper piecing class.
The same design in Christmas fabrics...

My class project is an orange and green baby quilt. Eight blocks down and twelve more to go.
These projects are all from Heather's book called "Angles with Ease." (Anka's Treasures)

Wow, Nancy, that looks like it was a wonderful class. I'm jealous. Ginny
Oh my goodness!! What a wonderful class and great projects!
