Today was our WannaBees get together, but we had a small group. Ben showed off his latest creation. The pictures do NOT do it justice. I wish you could see in person the many layers of handpainted scales on this dragon. Mind boggling.
Jodi and Ben had both taken the Sundance workshop with Frieda Anderson. I wish I had taken a picture of their work - the bright sunflowers are so cheerful after our 5th day of rain in a row! Using a wavy blade on the rotary cutter adds so much movement to this quilt. I can't wait to see them all quilted and embellished.
Lene had a new baby to show off! For those of you using a reader, click on my blog so you can vote in the new poll. How many sewing machines do you have? I have never had more than one at a time (unless you count Gracie's, which I don't.) I am curious about having different machines for different tasks.
Jodi was working on her blooming nine patch pattern. This is a quilt I've always wanted to make, but never had the occasion. I even have the book already, although I think I might have loaned it to Mom.
I spied this "cheat sheet" with Jodi's work, and thought it was a great way to keep track of so many different fabrics that have a specific spot.
I spent the lovely hours whipping down the binding on the first of the twin boy quilts.
I had to fight my machine every step of the way, but more about that in my next update. All I can say for now is that this one is done, DONE done, with a label.
