If you are wondering where I've been.....I'm back from playing with grand kids and then resting up for my next big adventure. I'm pulling a Patchwork Component class together. This class will include formulas and piecing technique for 12 different quilting components so YOU can decide the size of your components and your blocks.
I started by pulling some Fall fabrics together.
Then I made one square in a square for the center, four hourglass units, and 4 corner square triangle units.
Then I started arranging and rearranging.
Then I made 8 flying geese and added them to the mix.
Then I made a pinwheel unit to change up the center.
Looking at some of these blocks gave me ideas for more blocks with the addition of other colors.
I felt like I was playing with puzzles all day long, turning my patchwork puzzle pieces this way and that way. I've been looking at my patchwork component idea list and I may have to make it a Baker's Dozen. My goal for the class is to show easy peasey piecing techniques along with the formulas to calculate all of the components. I had a couple of ahh-haa moments while I was working yesterday and I came up with a border idea. One thing just leads to another and I get easily distracted as more and more ideas take shape.
You know how it is when you are working on a puzzle, you have to find just ONE MORE PIECE! I'll be working on additional pieces today along with the directions. Soon, I'll be sharing with you where I'm going to be teaching this class....exciting stuff for me!
