here is a close up of some of the hand quilting
The back; need to make a label!
The quilting. Almost looks like a white work quilt from the back.
I had a great time playing with my red and white fabric on the retreat.
Here I am playing with my new strip stick that I purchased at the Lancaster Quilt show. You can read more about it and see a demo by clicking here. It's called a strip stick and it works great and it's made by the nicest couple. I highly endorse it.
So, I finally started Hanna's first Miami of Ohio Red and White quilt.
I drafted the house in 2 sizes, 9" and 10" finished. I decided on the 9" house block. I'm using 1 and 2 chimney versions.
Under construction. I finished one block to make sure that the paper pieced roof section would fit the other strip pieced section. Hooray, it works!
And here is an example of sewing it to the wrong side resulting in a backwards roof - doh! I used it to rough cut the pieces for the others.
And I guess that the old adage is true; the early bird does get the worm....or a quiet sewing room. This was our work room. We had about 30 women on the retreat and it was so FUN.
Hope you all had a great weekend too!
