My weekend was an interesting balance of two types of quilting - large blocks, easy to construct quilt that will be used and loved to death vs. small complex blocks, challenging to sew, artsy type of wall hanging that will never be used. I love both types of quilting and although most people seem to have a strong preference for one or the other, I love them both.
I already wrote about Saturday's challenging artsy project (click here to read it) and today I am writing about Friday's class which had a quick and relaxing project. The "Ladies of the Evening" is a biannual class at Reichards and is a wonderful night out with quilting friends. We enjoyed a potluck supper, lots of socializing, and sewing until we drop (which for me was much earlier than usual since I had to get up early to travel to the class on Saturday).
Here is the fabric kit for this mystery project...all lovely Christmas fabrics.
Cutting and sewing the 64 half rectangle blocks was quick...it was the trimming up that took the most time. And of course I saved the little dog ears for my collection.
And here are the blocks as they look on my design wall this morning...
