Morris is one crazy cat when he wants my attention he will walk across the phone and make the answering machine turn on or walk across the keyboard of the computer and make it start making noises. So this morning I had to explain to Morris I am busy writing about Hobo Quilt night. Finally I had to put him outside.
This has been such a fun class. This book is definitely for intermediate quilters and so I have struggled a little. Paper piecing is still not my favorite thing but I definitely want to improve so next Hobo quilt class I am going to sew some more blocks so I get it straight in my head how to do it on my own. Having everyone working on different blocks is great because we give each other hints on the block.
|What a cute bag. Kim also took the class|
|Kim made the bag|
| Beth gave me the names of the blocks|
that I can use these two sizes of paper
to make my blocks get done quick..
The measurements are confusing in the book at times so when you hit a block that your not sure what to do having several heads explain what the author meant helps. Jonnie was the first person to finish! The interesting thing Jonnie did was go to a t shirt printing business and have them print a two blocks out of the book which tell what the signs mean. Jonnie then sewed it in her backing.
All we have to do is take down our two fabric squares and we have the squares all identified in our quilt. Kim shared some of her fabric she is going to use for backing. It had a railroad theme.
Donna is busy with her squares putting her sides on.
Donna shared stories of her recent trip to
quilt market in Houston .
What a fun event to go to.

I worked on my hand sewing of my wool
applique square and I bought these fabrics
me of tracks.
This has been such a busy week .Tomorrow I have an invite
to rug hooking at Bev's.I want to finish my Turkey rug so I can start my
new rug which will be a sheep.
Hope you all liked the pics.
