Idaho Quilt Retreat.....Day 3 & 4 from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


I continue to work with my hand dyes... 



I challenged myself to see just how far

I could go with curved piecing...

this top has no puckers, flat as a board !






I am using leftover strips and scraps

to create a border treatment 

for the curved top...






Playing around with improv blocks...






I am liking the bold X blocks

to balance out all of those curves...





I also tried improv flying geese,

but they aren't the right fit...





The improv floating triangles blocks

seem to work in the borders...






Okay, I have a plan...

now to create more blocks ...

Idaho Quilt Retreat.....Day 2

 


I am working with my hand dyes today...





I brought along some 

3/4 log cabin improv blocks...





I am using a flannel backed tablecloth

taped to the wall as my portable design wall...





I am using a wooden TV tray

as a pressing station...





It is kind of like a puzzle

getting these odd shaped blocks

to fit together...





I am building this in units,

rather than rows...





I am calling this....DONE !



Here is what the other Quilters are working on:


Donna's.... Raggedy Ann Quilt




She fussy cut all of the applique ...

THE WINNER OF THE GIVEAWAY IS MARY ANNE FOX. CONGRATULATIONS!Well 2020 has certainly been an interesting year for us. I haven't been blogging too much this year, my plate has been full. As many have been and are currently doing, we have made the move from California to Idaho. It's very different living in a neighborhood again after so many years of living in the forest. We couldn't be happier!
