Quilt University class "Working in Series" with Elizabeth Barton. The whole abstract designing is a bit addicting. Its going to be fun to study value and shape this way. It really wasn't too hard either - 45 blocks and 11 hours in this quilt top! I'm not quite sure where the free motion quilting is going to go but I'll leave that for another time. I'm sure that Elizabeth is going to say, "Okay Nina - get going on the next." See how she is??? (grin)
One thing I wanted to share with you is a quick piecing tip. I used little stickers I bought at the dollar store to help keep the blocks in the right order. In the past, whenever I had blocks like this that needed to be pieced exactly in the right order and the right side side up - they were forever getting switched around. So this time, I numbered the stickers and placed them on the blocks. Worked like a charm. Everything was easily kept in the same order and when I was done - I just tossed them out. I imagine you could keep them for another use but since they were only a buck for 300 - why?
I'm starting to machine quilt the Memorial quilt and start working on the next in the series. Wow - don't I sound serious about my work? (grin)
