I have been a fan of Debbie Caffrey since I bought the Open a Can of Worms book a few years ago. This year at the Maine Quilt show the weekend after next Debbie Caffrey is going to be a guest teacher. I was so excited I got a few friends together and we signed up for the Saturday class. We are making a mystery quilt. We got a list of fabrics needed and some instructions to start cutting. I like this selection of fabrics, but haven't gotten anything cut yet. We are supposed to have 5 fabrics from dark to light with high contrast. Mine aren't really high contrast, but I think that with the totally different colors I will be fine. I love this selection, but I had to really fight with myself to use them.
The Red Rooster one in the middle is the only
yard I have and I had it with another selection that I was going to make something out of. Back to the weird things about me... I am having a really hard time using all of it because then it will be gone. :-0
This is a mystery quilt that I designed from an block that I saw in the Nickle Quilts book and one of the M'liss Rae Hawley fat quarter books. I taught it in a class last year. It is in my UFO pile waiting for my longarm quilter to have time for it. She is a friend of mine and is backed up right now. I told her I was in no particular hurry so when she had time in her schedule to let me know and I would bring it over. We trade services. I keep her computers up and running and she does my longarm quilting. (o:
Our quilt meeting is tomorrow night. I decided not to add the embroidered spider to my Round 3. I can't wait to see what I have to work with for the next month. This round is 4. We were being funny when we decided on what to do for borders. We thought 4 would be fun. 4 anything: 4 inches, 4 squares, 4 stripes, 4 flowers. 4 cats. You get the idea.
