I do want to share a few things since I last posted.
I delivered the Tetris quilt to my dear friends for their anniversary and they immediately put it on the bed:
It fit so perfectly in the room. They really loved it.
I joined another Bee with my Orlando Modern Quilt Guild and am in the paper piecing hive.
Here's the block I am asking the group to make for me:
|Paper-pieced paper planes|
(Say that 5 times fast!)
They can use print or plain white fabric.
I've finished my next Stash Bee BOM which I need to drop in the mail today.
Here's another block I made for her because I read the wrong blog posting about her being Queen Bee for the month. (It didn't occur to me that some people are members of more than one hive online and since I subscribe to her blog, I just followed the email and didn't bother to check the details. Oh well! It was a challenge to make but will be fun to see it when she puts them together.)
|Scrappy Sochi-inspired design|
(I love this word search fabric and made it the center block.)
The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild and I have also been helping a sweet group of 5th graders make a modern quilt for their school as their graduation present. I taught them a little about the history of quilt making and the modern movement. They were really interested in the geometric designs I showed them. Using graph paper, they came up with a really cool idea to make an ancestry tree which shows their families backgrounds. It tied into their history project so it was pretty perfect. They found several quilts online they like and I wanted them to really make this quilt unique. (Plus, I reminded them about plagiarism and that those designs are property of the original artist.)
Here's a sneak peek:
We were invited to attend graduation this Thursday evening where they will present the quilt to the school and share the finished piece. I can't wait to see it and share it with you.
What are you up to this week?
