Finish #1-My Crabapple Hill Retreat project
This piece also has shading done with crayons!
Not sure what I'll do with this yet. It is on a wonderful piece of linen with a decorative edging to it. (Sorry I didn't get that in the pic.)
Finish #2-my first "real" quilt top from my beginners quilting class
It is an original design from my teacher "incorporating two traditional patchwork patterns, a block sometimes called "Double Four-patch" and a block called "Friendship Star." I can tell already that picking out fabric for future projects will be a challenge for me. It took help from my teacher and the shop owner to get these 3 chosen.
Our final class is next week. We will be pinning the top, batting, and back together. Then we will be shown some machine quilting and my teacher agreed to get me started on Amber's baby quilt. :)
Then we will practice attaching and hand-finishing some binding. I am so happy I took this class! Now I might actually get started on the two BOM that are already accumulating in my craft room.
Have a great weekend everyone!
