More happy faces! And do you know why? Because those points are so sharp I could cut myself!
First up, the Big 3: Home Circle at Patchwork Plus in Marcellus, NY. These five ladies honed their rotary cutting, machine piecing and pressing skills. Great job!
Anita, Victoria and Debbie are smiling proudly because they completed Jack in the Box blocks at O'Susannah's in Watkins Glen! Their flying geese units are made the old fashioned way--with quarter and half square triangles! Just delightful!
Victoria also brought in some show and tell that day. First, she took to hand piecing hexagons like a duck to water! What started as a small class project to learn the technique (NOT EPP) became a good sized runner. All hand pieced and hand quilted.
A closer look and the back.
Victoria also took several machine quilting classes with Mandy Applebee at O'Susannah's.
(https://www.facebook.com/yellowhousequilts) Victoria said she practiced and practiced before tackling this quilt. All the feathers are freehand--no pattern drawn on the fabric! I am very impressed! Also, she was having trouble machine piecing the blocks and making them come out the right size, so...she hand pieced them and they are perfect! That's why it pays to know lots of techniques!
So that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed these beauties!
