I'm attending a quilt retreat with members of my quilt group, the Ham Lake Piecemakers, soon. Actually, today I realized that it is 1 week from today! That really snuck up on me! I have to move it up on my mental calendar and get my gear lined up. I am taking mostly projects that are already started and really need to be finished. But I do have one new project that I just started, and plan to teach for a winter class. It's called Mini Rings by Sew Kind of Wonderful. It requires a special ruler, the Mini Quick Curve Ruler.
I'm making mine with a different color combination--
|Strip sets to be cut into arcs.|
|Lots of scrap curves.|
|All of my pieces cut and organized for a ride to retreat!|
|A sample block sewn to test the pattern and my skills!|
Last week I shared some pictures of the squirt gun art. Today I had time to play with an idea I had to use some small pieces of the paintings. This is a frame that floats the paper between 2 sheets of glass. Place on a painted wall in a medium gray shade, it looks like something very likeable!
Thank you, Ian and Jack! Love you!
