Group project

One of the MANY joys of blogland
is a group project....
a Quilting bee....
An adventure!!!!

I was able to join a quilting bee over here this year
and requested blocks from my 11 bee peeps.
Blocks using "made" fabric...
fashioned into a VERY large triangle
15" wide.....any height.

This is what I received!
Isn't it fun??

I added a simple border....

and found out that....
Quilting goes a LOT faster when the
blocks are READY MADE!!!
Thank you friends.
I love my quilt top!!
Now.....to get it quilted!
But that will have to wait! :(

The tension on Ms. Juki has gone haywire!
I think I need some expert advice from
the sewing machine doctor!!!
Until then.....it's little miss featherweight and me.
We'll be BFF today!!!

  11. What fun! That was a great idea to just ask for a width & any height. :D
    One of these days I will step out & try 'making' some fabric. I just need to gather all my scraps & bits & pieces into one place & dig in...
