Things have just been going non-stop around here since the end of school. Here's a little glimpse of my sparse quilting related activity:
Look at these lovely 9 patches I received from Anina's Three by Three Swap. This is the first set. I'll be sending some more off by the end of this month and then I'll anticipate another lovely package with a variety of nine patches inside. There are 4 blocks missing from the picture that were unfortunately made a bit small. But they won't go to waste. My daughter is excited to use them in a project.
Check out the fun wonky house below.
A group of us local friends and quilters are just starting a little quilting group. At our first meeting we made these houses inspired from Gwen Marston's book Liberated Quiltmaking. Our generous teacher let us choose fabrics from her stash to try out this fun free piecing technique. I can't wait to make more of these fun houses! I've been watching Lynne make tons of them. And of course Sarah makes wonderful houses too. I was excited to join in the fun.
I'm off to Girl's Camp this coming week. We've got a really nice camp/facility that we use for about 200 girls ages 12-18. I'll check back in when I return. (Hopefully my summer can really start when I get back! And hopefully that will include more sewing and posting to my blog!)
