Brynwood Needleworks graciously offered to hostess this project and offer any help possible. When I signed up I confessed that I have never quilted and didn't know how to quilt, however Donna was certain I would do just fine so she allowed me to join the group. I soon found that I am not very good at tedious and precise little pieces of fabric and templates and stitching them together. Further...some of the blocks have no acrylic templates that do make it easier than using little paper templates. So Donna offered to create paper piecing templates for those blocks. What? I have never paper pieced either. Here is block #1 Attic Windows. I selected it due to its "simplicity". I purchased the preferred Carol Doak Foundation paper. I watched tutorial videos. I was ready to tackle this.
So I print out another sheet to begin again...
I am really liking the back of this block.
Thank you Donna for your patience and help when I emailed you with my cries for help. The time and effort you put forth in answering my emails and writing out instructions and being supportive were invaluable to me as is your friendship dear.
Now to get busy with my real FW QAL fabrics I am using in my wall hanging project. I spent a couple of hours organizing my FW project as it had gotten quite out of control. Email copies, templates, fabric scraps and such are now better organized for my access. It is time for me to get serious once again about making blocks for my wall hanging. Thank goodness I am not making a California King quilt.
Our weather has seriously cooled off. At night it is downright cold after all the wonderful warm summer weather we have experienced this year. Sadly we have had 0, none, zero, zilch, nada rain at all. We desperately need rain. I have never seen so many brown dying or dead trees and bushes in this area. I have no idea what winter will hold for us this year. Only Mother Nature knows for sure.
Falling into Autumn Bliss and getting back to being creative. May you each enjoy your bliss...
