Playing Catch Up

Well I'm back after a couple of weeks away. Had some fun and some sun and a good time with friends.
Yesterday while doing up laundry I got back to the ruler work class offered by Patsy Thompson on her blog .... only one lesson left on Monday. It has been great sew far . Learning to play with the rulers and seeing what we can do with them has been Lots of fun. A little math and a sliver of soap and away we go.
Here is what the last two lessons look like for me. I figured out that I picked the wrong starting point along the way  but if you stay consistent it still works out .

Now to finish the laundry...... I'd much rather be quilting.

Ruler work

Dusting off my rulers and taking a online class offered by Patsy Thompson. Parry is offering a free ruler work class with new classes on Monday and Friday for the month of January. I just finished lesson 3 and able to use the rulers I have on hand. Each lesson builds on what you learned last time. Sew if you have rulers that are just waiting to be used go to Patsys blog and get started.
Here's what I've done sew far.

Here is a quilt I have also been working on  with rulers . I now have the border left to decide how I want to quilt it. I made the quilt at a Saskatchewan Stitches Conference. The border I had designed in the class. It's time to get it done as I started it back in 2013.

A closer look at my ruler work choices

Off to stitch a little more...... take care

Scrappy Friends

Scrappy Friends was the name of the mystery quilt for January 1 2018 hosted by The Quilt Bug quilt shop via their newsletter.
I remembered on December 30 that they did one last year sew I checked it out and one was there. I looked over the supply list and thought it's sew cold out that a day sewing by the fire would be a perfect start to the new year.
Sew with out further ado here's my first quilt top for 2018.

Thanks for stopping by
In stitches and hugs too
