This past Thursday was the second meeting of The Clothesline Club at The Quilted Cottage quilt shop. Since our club started later than most, we are combining two months into one until we catch up. Stacy showed us two cute four patch doll quilts done in different colorways. She also had the cutest little fabric dog to match one of the quilts. The kit for this month was for placemats with scalloped edges. I hope I do them justice. It will be good practice for the scallops on my Dear Jane quilt. The tea cozy pictured I made from last month's kit last. Someone didn't read the directions when applying the bottom binding. Instead of folding the curved binding to one side, I should have smushed it down. (That's a technical term) I haven't decided if I will redo that part.
Step 3 of Bonnie's Carolina Crossroads Mystery is now done. I will post a picture tomorrow after they are pressed. Does anyone else feel like they are back in school and the teacher is giving us 'good' homework?
A huge storm is predicted while we sleep tonight. So far, we keep missing the storms, but the forecasters promise this one is for real. Lots of snow should greet us tomorrow morning. Sounds like another good day for sewing!
I couldn't wait until morning to see the piles of nine patches from Step 3. I love them! This time I needed to make 80 blocks.
