Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
This is the new project the ladies and I have chosen to replace our Row by Row series. (I didn't have time to design one this time.) Isn't it pretty?
It is a medallion sampler quilt designed by Lori Smith. It looks complicated, but is actually pretty straight forward because it mainly uses rotary cut triangles and squares. We will begin in September and probably finish next April or May.
Some of the ladies are going with batiks, but since I did that last time for the Row by Row, I think I might go with more traditional cotton prints. Don't let the word "traditional" fool you though! I think this pattern would be fun to jazz up with some brights! I'll make another post about it once I have my fabrics picked, so check back and see what I come up with!
I finished the sample! (Please ignore the date on the picture...I forgot to reset the date on my camera! :)
This is the class series I started teaching back in September of last year and I am so pleased with the results! It's one thing to design something on paper (or in this case EQ7) and quite another to see the real thing come together. I love the batiks and that even though the rows are all different, there is still good flow to the overall quilt.
I'm choosing not to quilt it right now, so that if/when I teach the series again, it will be easier to store and show the new students the backs of the blocks.
I am so proud of the six ladies who have taken these classes! They have all worked so hard and their blocks and rows are looking beautiful! The best part? They've formed some neat friendships with each other along the way!
Even though we still have two more meetings before we are truly "finished", we've already decided that we don't want the fun to end! We will start a new project in September. So be on the look-out for more posts!
