... Great New Friends
Yesterday's class at the Covered Bridge Quilters Guild was a success ... so I was told ... it went by in a blur of activity. But I have photos to prove that progress was made.
The class project was "Japanese Star" designed by Marci Baker. Here is an old photo of mine.
The challenge with the diamond is that half the logs "lean" to the right, and half "lean" to the left. So our mantra for the morning was "Come RIGHT in; don't be LEFT out" to help us remember how to orient the Clearview Triangle when cutting. Those who chose to work with batiks learned that miscuts could just be turned over to correct the mistake. They also learned that this reversibility increased the chance they might stitch it on the wrong side!
In the afternoon we worked on the easier triangle blocks which are added to a diamond to form one of six wedges.
I received a text late last night with a photo of this last one complete!
Thank you, Covered Bridge Quilters, for your hospitality. You were a brave bunch and I have confidence your projects will be ready for next month's show'n'tell!
