After meeting Victoria Findlay Wolfe in Vero Beach earlier this year, and purchasing a copy of her Double Wedding Ring book, I came home and started the process of paper piecing her “Bright Lights Big City” pattern, an improv version of the New York Beauty and Double Wedding Ring.
I am getting my groove back on and am going to focus on finishing up the arcs for this quilt (and it looks like I need a new camera, what a blur)!
C&T publishing had a big sale and I took advantage of it to add some great books to my quilting library.
They arrived on my porch today, so….. Happy Birthday to Me!!
I took a class last week with Nancy Bills on making pineapple blocks. Wow, is she a great teacher! Seaside Piecemakers quilt guild brought her to Florida for a couple days of classes.
Here is the one block I made in class, and I have finished 3 more and will be turning it into a table runner, hopefully today. I am so loving the red/burnt orange fabric by Paula Nadelstern that I dug out of my stash for this class.
Love this time of year when our orchids are exploding. Every morning brings a new mass of color to our patio.
