This was an interesting month with a new educational consultant – fancy name for a demonstrator. Here is a cute baby cuddly made. with Minky. There was a pattern for a frog, pig, dog and cat. The head is stuffed with fiberfill so the child can hug it or have the blanket around them. If I were to make this, I think I’d enlarge it just a bit so it would be usable for a few more months.
Here is the pattern
She showed several quilts made from the book Simply Fat Quarters which were fast and easy.
Here are a couple more, These are made using only fat quarters
One book she had, Sew On the Go. was patterns for making a bag for your cutting board, a bag for your long ruler, various bags to carry other sewing equipment to a class including this cute bag.
Interestingly enough this flag is made from cutting tubes according to a pattern and sewn right sides together, then turned and adhered to a backing. The tubes were stitched on and quilted . This is easer than it looks. Oh and if the points don’t come out exactly right in the center, no worries, just embellish with a button.
Along with the patterns, she showed us various rulers and other gadgets to make our quilting easier and more fun
