Here is a slider card. It has been a long time since I made one of these.

And video, but I don't know if it is going to work:


This is so much fun.

NewBee - May

I joined the NewBee at CJMQG. We are 7 quilters making large blocks that are simpler, that is no paper piecing.

Juanda asked for a Missouri Star Quilt block. This block is a ginormous (her words) 23.5 inch block. She was very organized and sent detailed instructions and video tutorial link.

Since I lost interest in the Project48 quilts, (although I may make this week's block.) I made one for that quilt.

I am the June bee. My block is the Double Z.

Patchwork City: Set 1

This year CJMQG is has chosen Elizabeth Hartman's book Patchwork City for this years Quilt-A-Long. The book contains 75 blocks. Members can design their own quilt. I am going to do a scrap quilt. Each of my "block" is a randomly selected 5x14, 8x8 and 5x8. I have an array of fabrics which I will swap in and out. Every set will have have the floral cat print, light blue denim and white.

Set 1:

5x14: Zoo Train
5x8 Fortune Cookie
8x8: Intercom

I am planning to base my layout on "Downtown".

Summer Bag

I am working through my list of projects to complete. I made my toile summer bag.

I used Butterick B4148 with a modification for my handles which are wider than the pattern.

A cute zipper pull.

Project 48 Quilt: Block 7 & 8

Block 7: I did not like the square. I choose a modern wonky chevron.

Block 8: I did not read the directions and cut and sewed the half square triangles incorrectly. Since I don't know if I will have enough fabric to redo the block. I followed advice I learned at the last Quilt Alliance - cut up the block and make something new.

Project 48 Quilt: Block 4

Block 4 is an hourglass variation. Maybe the color contrast is too pale?
