projects for the new year

Hello all, Mary Ellen here. Of late I’ve been working on Gudrun Erla’s Two Timer quilts from her latest book. Easy piecing! Mine is going to be scrappy-which does increase the cutting time a bit but I think it’s going to be a fun look. I’m trying out her third Stripology ruler to see how I like it. So far, so good. If you’re taking part in the bucket list challenge (go back a post or two), the first prize drawing will be happening at our guild meeting this week. You can comment on any of the posts from the introductory post up until this one to get your name entered in the drawing. If you’ve already commented, feel free to comment again–particularly if you’ve checked off another thing on the bucket list. Hoping to see you Thursday at the meeting-morning time slot remember! Starts at 10:00 a.m.

It’s a group of little storage pouches from a demo I did for one of the guild early bird specials. When I finish them up, I’ll have 4 of the same pouch. Gifts for nieces and my sister – […]
