work in progress

Last night I took a class with Kristal Evens at Quilting Adventures on English Paper Piecing.  I've tried it before on my own, and always hated it, but something just called my name to try it one more time.  So, last night my wife and I tried it out!  I don't know if she's loving it as much as I am, but this morning before work, I even made some more.  It helped to have someone teach me the tips and tricks to get it all right.

I also just finished a quilt top from Modern Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman.  After each project in the book, she has a few mini-quilts in the same pattern to show off different color choices.  I was looking for something to hand quilt, so I decided to do a mini version of Happy Hour. 

After all that, I decided that I wasn't going to quilt it how I'd originally planned (more on that later), so I don't know what I'm going to do with it now!

Last but not least, I've been playing around with these homemade polaroids and my own photographs.  They aren't perfect yet, but they are so fun and easy to make!  I'm debating selling some in my etsy shop.... We'll see what happens.

  1. I wish I would have known you two were taking that class, I'd like to have taken it with you. I am working on making some hexies and I've only gotten one done. It was awful. I need to make about 10 more.
