Today I spent the day "playing" with my circle maker on my sewing machine.
I layered the light squares under the dark squares from yesterday and pinned them together trying to make sure that all the seams matched. There are about a million pins in this and I kept pricking myself on them during the day. Ouch! This quilt has my own hand dyed fabrics in it.
Then I made lovely circles and cut away the excess fabric to expose the lighter colours underneath.
I used to religiously watch the show "Simply Quilts' in NZ and was completely gutted when they cancelled it. Imagine my delight to find that I could subscribe to the new show "The Quilt Show" online with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims! Its shows like this that really promote our craft and I have learnt so much from these two shows!
Last night Hennie and I booked our classes for the Houston Quilt Festival. Yippee!
Anyway thats all for now
