Carnival-John Flynn class

I like it! Can you see the circles and the spider webs?
This is a 3 x 3 block version that is just on my design
wall (blocks not sewn together yet) The actual quilt
will be 4 x 5 blocks so with borders it will make a
nice lap size. I might even make it larger because
it looks like one of my sons will love this and he is
6' 3". Although I must admit curve piecing isn't my
favorite, I do enjoy the results. The trick is to go
slow. That is hard for me. John Flynn is very laid
back and funny. It is amazing to see him interact
with all these women. He was very patient to say
the least.

Maybe you all remember that the members of my
bee exchange sewing/quilting theme fabric. When any
of us go to a quilt show we bring the others a FQ.

Well how do you like DOGS ON QUILTS! I couldn't resist
this fabric. Most of us are dog people so I know they
will like it. I bought a yard for myself and two yards to
make FQs for my bee. Cute huh?

Finally, for today, here is a book I bought for the guild
library. It has patterns for the cutest flowers to
applique by machine or by hand. She gives lots of
versions for quilts and accesories. (Sorry about the
bright spot-I took four pics and they all had it-even
without the flash).

More Lancaster stuff to come.

Until next time...

I bought a curve master foot and have yet to try it. I love quilts with curves and this one looks very interesting.
