November 2017

November is the month that I really start on my Christmas makes! But October is the month of working out what I need to make and designing it. I am already to go on the Christmas postcards and the small gifts, I create for my classes. I will be starting to make things this week.

I completed the ‘Faded Glory’ quilt that I showed in the afternoon class and I have started showing a new sampler quilt with this class. Each square on the quilt is made up of Half Square Triangles put together in different ways to create different pattern. A lot of the patterns are called Mosaic No. Something….

With the morning class we have been working on the Flower sampler quilt, the class before the half term I showed Dresden Plate design and made four sample ones, two small and two large – with these I am creating a ‘topper’ quilt. The squares are all made and quilted and I have just got to put them together.

Other than Christmas makes, finishing the Dresden plate quilt and finally finishing Laura’s hexagon quilt are the main items on my list.

(remember I regularly post on Facebook!)
