Work in Progress

I'm eager to finish my holiday items for my MyColorPops Etsy shop so I can return to my current fun project. All blocks done and one row assembled.

Quilt in SCMQG Swap

Several people have asked me for the pattern I used for the quilt I made for my swap partner. It is a variation of the very old snowball block.




I got the pattern free some years ago but it is no longer on the guild site. The lady who made the pattern for the LAMQG has it on her site for $4.

Here's a link:  January Block

Good Tutorial for Single Thickness Binding

This is a really good idea, especially for quilts that will not get heavy use. I found this in The Quilt Show newsletter today.

Fusing Adventure

I am no fan of fusing but sometimes it saves a lot of time. I experimented with Steam-a-Seam lite and Steam-a-Seam II. The grid side on both is really stiff so I decided to try Wonder Under. I am struggling mightily with it. Too hot and the glue melts and pulls off, less hot and edges don't adhere, even less hot and nothing adheres. YUCK!!! 

Maybe I will just piece the leaves for the placemats, lol.

New Items Added to Etsy Shop

I have had a lot of fun exploring the many ways to use BasicGrey Grunge fabric. It's very close to a solid, which is very close to paint. Although I will never be a painter, playing one is fun. Check out these on my shop.
