Canberra Modern Quilt Guild. I have really enjoyed finding a group of like minded quilters and turning some online friends into real life friends. As members of the Canberra chapter, we are also members of the International Modern Quilt Guild. This year, they held their third fabric challenge in partnership with Riley Blake Designs as the sponsor. We were provided with 6 different fat 1/8ths, with the guidelines that it must be anything quilted!
Sarah Fielke's Craftsy Class - Big Techniques from Small Scraps I have been dying to make a dresden plate quilt. So I took this opportunity to make one! Using the provided fabrics and a few Riley Blakes I had in the stash I set to work. Making the dresden plate was pretty easy actually. I did run into trouble as my dresden wedge template wasn't big enough, however I just extended the length with some jatz cracker cardboard and it all worked out.
instagram (@2littleausbirds) you probably saw a few progress shots? I just love the instagram community and speaking of it, did you take part in the #greataussiedestash? Oh, boy, wasn't that crazy! I sold a lot of bits and pieces, however, I probably bought a bit much! Oopsies...
Well, what do you think? Have you tried anything new lately? I can't wait to get into my new 2014 projects with my lovely new to me Janome (thanks mum!).
