Shiloh



Say hello to Shiloh! So you;ve seen peeks here and there so here's the pattern that I'll be using. It's from Bonnie Blue quilts.


I'm using a Looking Back by Moda fat quarter bundle as well as scraps from quilts I have already made (mostly from my blue and cream Stash Buster quilt). As you can tell by the first picture I haven't gotten far into the project (only 11 out of 36 blocks!!!)

In my defense, allow me to show you some photographic evidence to prove that I couldn't just sew any old block to another!!!


Because of the dark golds I am using for this quilt are being used as both a light fabric and a dark fabric I had to pretty much plan out the color scheme of each block before even thinking about sewing anything together. 

So now! I am well on my way!


I'm really excited to see how this one turns out. It's the first time I've ever sewn flying geese and I'm trying to be as precise as possible with my blocks. (No eaten up points for me!)



This weekend, DM and I are headed o a quilt retreat/class. I'll be dabbling at machine quilting  in the class hosted by connecting threads and taught by Harriet Hargrave. 

It's a first time for me taking a class! 

Wish me luck!!!

Harriet Hargrave came to my guild when I lived in UT and gave a talk about machine quilting. She was AMAZING! I only wish I had taken a class with her. You are in for a treat! I'm so jealous. Have fun!!!

Hi:
I was at that retreat also. I just found your blog! Are you Andrea or Ndrea? I am Mary. I sat across the room. I am the one who lost my i-Phone but later found it between the seats in my car! That was a great class and I have vowed not to pay to have a quilt done (except really big ones!)Con
