SMALL PROJECTS FOR NEW TECHNIQUES


For those of us who didn’t get to go on the Heart of Winter Tour bus trip in February (I blogged about it here), I want to show you a few things we missed. Judy brought these to share when the First Saturday Bee met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Above is the wall hanging that Judy made. She received this pattern from one of the shops they visited on the tour. Judy said the pattern was for a pillow but she decided to make it into a wall hanging. The object was to learn how to make prairie points. Isn’t it darling!


This pattern was from another shop they visited.  The object of this project is to learn how to make a block using crayons.  Judy said she learned a lot and was surprised that special crayons were not needed.  Didn’t she do a great job!  I like the quilting too!
This little wool penny rug was given to all who rode the bus that left from the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Sally served as hostess and distributed these packets so the women would have something to do during their ride. Sally, I bet those women love and thank you.  I hope someday to get to participate in this fun event.  Keep your eyes open for next year's tour.

The Quiltiger has some free quilt block patterns. Click on the featured block on the right to get the directions that are in PDF format. It comes in 5”, 6”, 12” blocks.


Stay Positive!

Love those !! I just won a stitchery that uses crayons. I haven't started it yet, but who doesn't love to color!?

Those are all so gorgeous!
