Anyway, back to my projects. Let's see, first I agreed to make a few blocks for one of our projects where we make baby quilts for the Wise Choices Pregnancy Resource Center. I got three of them made, but plan on doing more. String piecing goes really quick and you see results fast.
Next, we started a Block of the Month project, where everyone does the same block and then at the next meeting a drawing is done for a winner to win all of the blocks for that month. I so hope I win one of these. These blocks are very time consuming, well they are to me. This one took most of a day from start to finish. Maybe I'm just a little slow???
The block is called: Stars Fell on Alabama
Then I had one more project to complete. It was called, "The Paper Bag Project". We all put a 10" square of fabric in a paper bag with our name on a piece of paper and put in a pile. We picked a bag out of the pile and had to create some kind of mini-quilt using some piece of that fabric. We will present the person whose fabric it was a completed project at the April Meeting. I sure hope ??? likes her "Lil Fox". It is a paper piecing. This is the most complicated paper piecing I have done thus far, but I love the way the points come out so accurately. The piece of fabric I got was the green at the bottom.
I think I have all of my guild duties complete for this month: newsletter (check), blog update (check), BOM (check), paperbag project (check), string block pieces (check). I'm ready. Come on Saturday so I can see what's for next month. Can't Wait!!!!!
