In case you are NOT familiar with this pattern - it is by Piece o Cake - it's an old one, but still available and CUTE CUTE CUTE
Now this is a fairly straight forward applique quilt. Originally was hand applique, but then the pattern was released in 1997 and fusible applique wasn't all that popular (well maybe it was). Anyway most of the group are using fusible applique and that is where the similarities to each other STOPS. Have a peek at what they did this month....... This is such a fun class - the girls are ALL crazy - they all have wild stories about their blocks and TONS and TONS of great ideas. I think we (including me) have learned a LOT!!!!!
The first block we worked on this past month was the North Pole Bakery
|Jeanette with a cute little bakery on a GORGEOUS blue background. I COVET some of that fabric!!!!!|
|Karen's block from last month - she changed the beard from last month (is that right????) and the beard is the trim off a pillow cover. You never know where your next inspiration will come from!!!!!|
|Marlene - who CREATED her own castle fabric. She took a gray fabric and drew in the castle lines. Very clever and see her candy can factory fabric - very cool!!!!|
|Mary - ooops - Mary also did the Candy Cane Factory the "right" way. Of course there is NO right way - I'm just kidding. Love that fabric for the Hats and Mittens.|
|Railis block (on top) - did you notice her lame snow!!!! It must be a FULL MOON when she worked on her blocks as there is a LOT of sparkle!!!!|
Judith (on the bottom) - a MAJOR construction zone happening here!!!!
|Linda - who is a little ahead of everyone and decided to put the blocks together and THEN applique. So far she is making out OK, but NOT the recommended way to do this!!!! I think she is doing a LOT of renovations!!!!|
|Marlene - who LOST her elf block from last month and decided to make an angel to replace it.|
I decided to lay all my blocks on the floor to see what it looks like so far and to decide the colour of those last houses. Here is what it looks like so far.
That is it for today - I have more pictures of show n tell from yesterday, but that will have to wait. I have to get out on my bike for a quick ride and I have a couple of new toys to play with this morning while I ride and must get them prepared!!!! Yes - you will hear all about them later.
Have a great day!!!!!!!
