Accuquilt Club...and Hexie Blocks
Yesterday I led the new Accuquilt Club at Stitch Therapy. We had a good time! We are starting each meeting with show and tell. This is Sarah hiding behind her quilt. She won a quilt pattern and realized she could cut all the pieces with an Accuquilt. In only one month she has completed this adorable baby quilt. We had other items shown, but I forgot to take any other pictures!
Because we were talking about what to with small squares of fabric, I brought everyone a square of chocolate. We talked about organization and storage of our dies, exploring lots of different options.
Next I demonstrated how to cut squares with a strip cutting die and how to make an Alabama Pine Burr block. The funny thing is...I inspired myself to want to make more of these blocks!
Here's the update on the hexie blocks - almost done! I'll add the stems today and call these complete.
We have a rainy day today. I think I'll bake some bread this afternoon, do a bit of laundry, and SEW!
