DREaMI project

Yesterday I was at my Guild for my monthly class and working to help my students with their varied projects.

While there 3 of us took a break to run to New Denver to see the renovations Kathy had made to her shop, Sew Much More Quilt and Yarn. She was having her grand re-opening and was offering a discount to customers.

So much inspiration on these shelves

I watched my two partners in crime making their piles of treasures; bolts of fabric to be cut, yarn to be knitted or crocheted and such fun notions! Feeling very proud of myself I managed to stick to my diet and left with only 1 piece of fabric; a yummy Batik in cream and brown which should be the last piece I need for a quilt together I am doing with my quilty partner from the Okanagan.

After stopping to grab a London Fog or Lattes we headed back to the Guild. While I was gone Lori had almost finished her log cabin blocks, Marcy had her borders on her blocks for a GAYQ quilt she started, Brenda had her quilting design drawn on her borders, Traci had another block finished for her Sampler Quilt (she is one of my beginner quilters) and Monique was picking the lace off her duvet cover. We settled in for a few more hours of laughter, stories, fabric fondling and sewing fun. I even managed to finish cutting a new quilt pieces.

Once I got home and had dinner with DH, I got out my Appliquick tools which I had won and been telling my quilters about. That’s when that squirrel ran across my head!

I grabbed some muslin, batting and a handful of scraps from my bin. Two squares were made in a wonky QAYG block. I squared up the blocks to 11.5 inches. Using sashing strips I joined the two blocks and added a casing strip to the top ends of the blocks. Side seams were sewn and pieces of metal measuring tape pieces were slid into the casing. The last inch of the side seams were then hand sewn to close them and secure the snappy strips.

And here we go………

Scrappy goodness!

A new storage bags for my Appliquick tools.

Amazing new tools! I love them!

I love quick projects that keep using bits from my scrap bins.

Thanks for checking this post. Do you get sidetracked by those squirrels. What was your last DREaMI (Drop Everything and Make it) Project. Are you making your machine sing today.

I’m tucked up with a blanket taking care of this cold I managed to come down with yesterday evening and reading, writing and drawing designs. 😄 Carol

Linking with Quilting is More Fun Than Housework

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
