October has arrived bringing with it Autumn and the feeling that Christmas isn’t too far away.
In classes we have begun the Floral Quilt, the first square is based on the traditional ‘Rose of Sharon’ design, and then the fifteen others are worked from there, using only a limited number of templates. I have decided to machine applique and then machine quilt my blocks.
The other quilt we have started is a Block one, using traditional Nine Patch designs. The projects are designed that they can be worked as two separate quilts or you can combine the designs and have some applique and others blocks, as both are the same size and quilt as you go.
Also thinking along the line of quick Christmas gifts and I am working on keyrings , bookmarks and jam jar sewing kit.
