Well I've been meaning to share some of what I've been doing while hiding in my sewing room and today I'm finally doing it!!
In January I took a class as I enjoy the time with the ladies and just focusing on actually sewing plus I get to see and touch and of course buy some fabric. This class was using 2.5 x 4.5 inch strips. I like Bali Pops as they are already 2.5 in strips so cutting is easy and time-saving. So I chose color of course and this is my quilt top. I'd hoped to get it finished to donate for a benefit but I just ran out of time so now I will finish it and see what speaks to me to do with it. It is the size of a throw so not big enough for a bed by any means.
Yesterday I started a 2nd class this one also a variation of using the same size pieces but this one called Bingo Whirl I believe. We started with choosing fabric, cutting, and making our 24 blocks. Next will be the borders so have some homework and will have more color to it. The light portion does have orange in it but hard to tell from the photo. I will share upon it's completion. but happy how my points came out.
So this is why I have been busy enjoying my time in my sewing room. Just thought I'd share!!
