I am working with a new color scheme. I don't think I have ever made anything red, white and blue. It's a fresh and eye catching collection of color to be sure. Whenever I see red, white and blue I think of my friend Cynthia in Arkansas, it is one of her favorite combinations. Hi Cynthia!
I cut my background pieces out wrong so I will have to finish these up tomorrow. I like the dark blue and the medium shades of blue along with the red.
Today I taught part 3 of our 4 part applique class at the Quilt Block in Exton. This class was all about machine applique. Here Rita Marie and Suzanne are using their practice pieces before they commit to the real block.
Everyone did real well. Doris had her daughter help her pick out her colors. I am excited for you to see their finish projects.
Jane picked out batik fabrics and was busy fusing down purple flowers at the end of the day.
Marcia completed her hand applique block and made it into a wall hanging! Way to go!
I gave all the ladies home work, let's see if they come back in 2 weeks with it completed.......
