Block 2 of #KRK100blocks didn’t come together right the first time.. and ripping out all the seams is no fun! But luckily I figured out what was wrong and the block came together the second time. This wide cross x block was made using @makoweruk fabric #1866botanicaminiberry, @artgalleryfabrics makers collection #makeandpin, and @michaelmillerfabrics #projectdovetail #cottoncouture color #berry
Block 1 of my #KRK100blocks is finished! It turned out wonderful! This quilt block is a “Y Block” and was made using @artgalleryfabrics floral roses and letters in love from the collection #capsulesletters, @modafabrics #acreage collection by #shannongillmanorr called #pinsinpond, and @michaelmillerfabrics #projectdovetail #cottoncouture color #lipstick.
So I’ve been wanting to try English paper piecing for awhile. I came across this book the other day, by Linda Franz, and absolutely loved the style of the patchwork crosses. I couldn’t wait to start! I am so in love with what I’ve been able to do so far. I can’t wait to see this whole cross finished. #addictedtoepp #englishpaperpiecing #lindafranz #lucybostonpatchworkofthecrosses
Do you ever attend an event, and prior to going you set your standards really high? Well, I did yesterday! It was my first time attending a quilt show in probably over a decade. I know, I know over a decade! It really doesn’t feel that log ago, when my memories are so clear. I spent many weekends during my adolescent and teenage years attending quilt shows with my grandmother, mom and occasionally my aunt, they are such wonderful memories, but I digress. Back to the quilt show, presented by The Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild. I had set goals to look only at the quilts, I wasn’t looking to shop at the vendors, but I did a little shopping. I just couldn’t help myself! But first I walked the isles and looked over the quilts. The first quilt I saw was beautiful and completely encompassed the theme of the show, “Salute to Texas”. It had gorgeous hand embroidery details that truly represented Texas. Then mostly everything went down from there. It wasn’t that there wasn’t beautiful quilts or strong craftsmanship, it’s just that high standard I had set in my mind. I wanted something to truly WOW me, but instead I felt underwhelmed. So I ask you, what do you do in cases where you set high standards, but left let down?
