I got my acceptance letter for “Sew She Did” from PIQF Monday. I’m excited! I’m proud of it, and happy to be able to share it with the quilting community. I really don’t expect to win anything, but getting into a juried show is a prize in itself.
A few people I follow on instagram have been showing quilts from the recent AQS show at Grand Rapids. Wow. There are/were some beautiful and masterful quilts on display. Jenny K Lyon was a teacher there and posted a bunch of photos on her blog Quilt Skipper. A few of those pictured, are works of such creativity that one may forget they are made of fabric.
I have been continuing the piecing of the Free spirit Melody quilt. I received my needed yardage and got all the pieces cut for the Flying Dutchman block. Along with printing the foundation papers. Wouldn’t you know that both printers were out of ink? A trip to the office supply store was needed too. I discovered I had an AccuQuilt cutting die that was the right size for the triangles of this block. That made cutting the 208 white triangles a bit easier. I got one block done that day, only 12 more to go. The picture on the right shows how the FD block combines with the sawtooth and big goose to form the secondary design.
I should be able to make some headway into this construction this weekend. Linking up with Denise at For the Love of Geese for Put Your Foot Down #17 today.
