Only a Little Progress

The three fabrics I showed in the last post will eventually be a Patience Corner quilt.  That's the pattern that I'm teaching to my beginners in January. Since it will eventually come together in pattern form, I have been taking pictures along the way to illustrate.  Here's where I'm at now.

While digging around, probably looking for some other lost item, I came across the demonstration samples from the Hexagon Table Mat class.  I had managed to piece four of the six segments.  It was either going to sit in a pile with its left-over coordinating scraps, or I could WORK ON IT.  So I finished the piecing and decided what order I would like to arrange the triangles.  Then I took a picture, so I could remember.

No hurry at all, since this is the third one of these I've made.  And with the fall theme, I won't really need it to be finished until next year.  But it's nice to have a little hand-work project to fall back on.

I'm getting nervous because some of the fabric for the shop hop quilt hasn't come yet and the hop starts Feb. 4!!!!!  I also need to put together samples for two other January classes.

New Project

Just a little "tease" today.  I am starting the cutting for a bed quilt that will become the January beginning quilting class and also a new Cotton Fields pattern.

Trust me .... the center piece picks up the color of the leaves MUCH better than it looks here!

So excited!  I haven't been able to get near my machine for two weeks.
