Drunkard's Path Quilt Block
Progress on all fronts – all of the squares have been added to my 8 pointed star quilt, and I have the next set of diamonds cut and ready to sew.
This week should see those being sewn on and maybe even the center of my quick star quilt will be done.
Then the borders – and, well, you know the story!
As I was sorting through my fabric stash, I came across a wonderful little cat batik that I got years ago.
With the 15th birthday of m. mouse coming up, I thought it would be lovely to make a quilt. Maybe for him – maybe for me. We’ll see.
Of course, he will be lobbying for a quilt for him. It would make a great birthday gift. We’ll see.
Anyway, a quick trip to the fabric store, and I picked up some great batiks to add to the fabric collection for the quilt. Now all I need is a pattern.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll figure that one out.
Since I was in the mood for 8 pointed stars, this week’s quilt block video is Idaho Star, which is an 8 pointed star – very simple star – that can be finished by sewing set in seams.
So, the video (and a weekend article) show you how to sew set in seams. I’ll be gathering some additional tips from other quilters to add to the page.
And now for the help – -
People have been requesting an online class.
I would like to include video (pre-recorded so you get just the best information), and a way for you to talk to me along the way.
I have been thinking about creating a 1 or 2 day project that can be completed in that time, and then doing it in 1 or 2 days – online.
Considering our quilters around the world, I am trying to achieve this at not cost for the technology (there will be a cost for the class); so you won’t need to pay for a long distance phone. It will be all online.
I’m working with my teckkie friends to figure that part out, and in the meantime, if you could tell me:
1. Is it something you would be interested in?
2. Would you prefer it to be during the week or on the weekend?
I’d like to hear what you have to say in terms of those questions as well as a particular quilt preference.
I have a couple in mind – a baby quilt, a photo quilt, a crazy quilt, or a quilt that uses jelly rolls.
Send your ideas to me at: email@example.com I’ll keep you all posted. I’d like to do one next month!
