Here are a few of the quilts coming together at our November Open Sew.
Jean was just finishing up this Ocean Waves quilt for a grandchild's wedding gift. The colors they requested are blue and orange. Aren't they going to love this?
|Sarah finished a block of the month. Nice|
|Sarah also worked on this quilt made using striped fabric. You cut squares and quarter cut each square. |
Then you sort pieces so all the horizontal stripes go in one block and the parallel stripes go in the other block. See a closeup below.
I tried doing it with a layer cake of striped fabrics.
It will make a pretty quilt but not net the same design - - - because, before you cut the squares, you refold the width of fabric and match the repeat in the stripes.
The next day was our November Sisters of the Cloth Class:
|Other members shared hand made items they are working on for holiday gift giving.|
|This is cool. Trish shared the quilt she made from the 9-patch block exchange we did in our 2015 series of Sisters of the Cloth. I really like what the clam shell machine quilting does to this square block pattern.|
|This year, instead of a block exchange, we exchanged packets of |
3 1/2" squares each month to make a very scrappy selection of fabrics for these six-pointed stars.
