Yesterday was a VERY fun day! I always enjoy sewing
with Stacie! Its fun to see how a fairly new quilter
sees things...and it's fun to share my thoughts.
I very hard to be careful NOT to inject to much
of my "seasoned" opinions...
It's important that she develop her own style..
I just want to be a "safety net".
Several weeks ago she looked through LOTS
of my quilt books and found this particular one.
by Konda Luckau from
I pretty much have every one of her books!
Check out her other fun books
The pattern that my daughter chose is this one.
and...she is going to add 2 more rows to make it
We used the studio to cut all the 5" charm squares.
OMGosh...does it go fast! 60 squares cut at one
These are the fabrics she chose...just a weee beeet
different than the book's example.
With the help of this...
the Ruby Beholder
(and, nope...I didn't design this...wish I had..$$$)
Stacie put together some blocks like these...
This is as far as we got yesterday....
I say "we" because she hates ...(or maybe she is just nervous?)
to cut. So, I do most of the cutting.
I'm happy to do it! It's a good way to get her
to come sew at my house...
I will post more of the progress later...she will be
visiting again today to see if she can get the
whole top completed...check back later to see
