Trying to get some stuff accomplished this week. I thought you might want to see this ruler. I have this one and then a smaller one with smaller measurements. If you are cutting out a lot of strips these are a real time saver. They are made by June Taylor and you just lay out the fabric and put this ruler on top of it and cut in the grooves. Works great.
Also picked up this crate at Staples. It is actually a "file holder" on wheels, but I bought it to put stuff in to take to quilt classes. It comes with a lid, good for rainy days, and it is large enough to be useful. This picture should be below the next one, but too bad.
This shows the folding crate before you undo it. I saw someone at a class I took on Saturday and decided I "had to have it", lol. Not expensive either.
Here is an actual finished quilt, complete with binding. This is Hopscotch made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics. It is 100 square, lol. I really do like it a bunch. Piece and Plenty is moving along at a snail's pace, but I am making progress. Have a lot to do but I had to take a break from it so I could refocus with a fresh eye. Also taking a break from my Web Sampler.
Here is my batik quilt coming along pretty well. I hope to finish it up by the end of the week, but around here who knows.
I took a class using paintsticks on Saturday. Learned a lot, but this is actually all I have to show for the time I was there. We spent a lot of time cutting out stencils and talking about the techniques, etc. It was a lot of fun and I think I will invest in the paintsticks and finish this up someday, lol.
I think that catches me up with quilty stuff for now. I am off to read a book by Sherrilyn Kenyon...a little risque in spots, but kinda funny.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
