catching up

Wow! I can't believe how long it's been since my last post. I just finished my class on Friday and I ended up doing really well in it. It's nice to know all my studying (and therefore lack of sewing) really paid off. I had a nice little break over the weekend before starting the 2nd half of the class yesterday. I fit in a little sewing yesterday and today before I got crazy busy with studying again. I had two blocks to make for the Pieced Together Quilting Bee. One for Stephanie who is making a spiderweb quilt. I just love the fabrics she sent and I can't wait to see her finished quilt. It is going to look amazing!


The second block is for Edith and she requested circles of some sort. I had seen this circle tutorial on dioramarama a while back and have been wanting to try it forever. It turned out to be a perfect technique for sewing circles and didn't take longer than a hour to do (which included me allowing the glue to dry for a while). I think this could get really addictive.



Anyway, what's been going on with you guys? I hope you are all having wonderful summers. It's hard to believe it already half way through July. Sorry I haven't been commenting lately on your blogs, but I have been reading. I promise to be back to commenting after this class is over, probably with a margarita in hand!

LOVE the cicle. I can see where it would become addictive!

The spiderweb is also great. I keep thinking I will start one of those.....someday....

All of my studying has had an impact on my sewing productivity as well. I love both of those squares!!
