Here is my next raw edge applique project ready to be quilted. I love all the bright, girly colours in the fabrics. Plenty of opportunities for fussy cutting in these fabrics too. This will be made into another cushion.
Below is my next Morrell quilt block. I have another appliqued block almost finished. One more pieced block to make after that and I can join all the centre section of the quilt together. I'm almost 2 thirds of the way through!!!
Yesterday I got out all my klosjes to sew them together. After laying them out I discovered I was 2 short!! Here are the 2 extras I sewed this morning.
I haven't been sewing as many JC blocks lately, but here they all are so far. I laid them all out so I could get an idea of how they look together and whether I want to make more green blocks or more blue ones. I'm not sure yet what I will do. The section in the photo may end up in the middle of the quilt.
On Saturday I went to an all day class on machine quilting with Mariya Waters. Since taking the class with Kellie a few weeks ago I now have more confidence in my ability to learn machine quilting. Saturday's class covered stitching made without marking the fabric. It was a great class and I came away eager to practice and learn more. I would love to take another class to learn the next level of quilting skills so that one day I will be as confident with my machine quilting as I am with my piecing. Hopefully, soon, those three words "quilt as desired" will not be as intimidating! lol
I have finished one more hexagon flower this week. It is the 2nd day of winter here, but we still have some sunshine this afternoon. I decided to photograph my flower outside with some other flowers. The plant on the left is a white camelia which was grown by my mother. The plant on the right is an Australian native called a Correa.
Happy sewing, everyone! :)
