If you would like to learn a bit about quilting the Sew mama Sew blog has a great thing going this month. It is Quilt month for them. They have some great special guests (Denyse Schmidt, Jennifer of Moving hands ((she has pictures up of the Toyko Quilt show, if you are hard up for inspiration look at her pictures and you will have inspiration of years)) and Gina of Quilters Buzz to name a few). The block above is named Dissapearing 9 patch. I followed their super easy tutorial and had it finished in about 10 minutes (I had an interruption to make a peanut butter and honey sandwitch) Really fun. The fabric I used for the block was Summer in the City caram pack. If you are a fabric-aholic like me you may have trouble resisting charm packs. I have tons of them but don't know what the heck to do with them. Well I will be using the summer in the city charm pack for this simple pattern....but wouldn't it look great with just solids, think about how it would look with just Shot Cottons? I wish I didn't have so darn much on my plate. Wasn't I going to simplify my life this year? Oh well, busy as ever and I am going to be putting some sewing and quilting classes together for some local ladies and their daughters...why not add something else to my list? It will be fun though!
