My South Texas quilt group is amazing!!!! I really do NOT think they sleep!!!!! I mean….really!!! The weekly meetings result in a “sharing” time that proves this thought. Today’s time began with many of the “flimsys”/quilt tops that were put together at the workshop I led last week (see here)………….. Yup, that top on the right was slashed to accept a diagonal “banner” piece of fabric!!!!!!! A closer view…………….And, lastly… If you follow the provided links back to earlier posts, the pattern is available. It is clever and allows for the side setting triangles to frame the center squares, set on point, without any troublesome math involved! The only caveat is that there is no 1/4” beyond the outer triangle points which results in the appearance of them being “cut off”. That may bother some (myself not being one!!!!!).
Now, on to the rest of the show/tell………(below) A Leah Day “Stitch Along” piece…….
This may appear to be like the workshop “Twist & Shout” tops but these setting triangles were done the ‘old fashioned way’!!!!!!
Now……there was a workshop that completed our time together. Rozann walked us through a “Felted Wool Applique” piece……… The piece on the foreground table is entirely from felted pieces from thrift shops!!! Wow!!!
Remember……to enlarge a photo, just ‘click’ on it!!!
