Hello Everyone,

When my friends Kate and Elizabeth asked me to be a part of their blog hop for their newly published book, how could I say NO???  I mean when you see the book, you will know why I said yes.  Just the mere title of the book leads you to want to know what you can do with your precut fabrics!  Really, we all have them right, strips, charms, fat quarters, you name it, we have them in our stash!!  So let's learn a little bit on what the possibilities are....

Hello Everyone,

Diligently working yesterday, all the units that you have been seeing have now become a quilt top!!!  Yes, they have and I am thrilled with the results.  Let me show you how my day went, first a teaser photo... (I must apologize for the darker photos.... it was night time and I was having a difficult time getting them to be a little brighter)

Hello Everyone,

Joining the units into the blocks has commenced and I am loving the results.  A little more curved piecing needs to happen, but not much more.

Hello Everyone,

Now that I have many of the curves sewn, I am now joining some of the units with more curves... LOL! But once these curves are done, they become traditional square blocks!! Yay!!  Then I can piece the entire quilt together in a traditional way.  Let's take a look at what I accomplished yesterday.

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was a day for corners.  I sewed the corners onto the B arcs!  This actually doesn't take too long, but after you must trim down.  My hopes is that by the end of the week I will have all the units joined and a top complete.... we'll see.

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I go a bunch of curves sewn on the Bali Bed Runner.  I hope you all like the progress photos?  Some of you have told me they are very helpful to all who are making this pattern or the Bali Wedding Star Quilt.  Today, I will be working on more curves.  Well, it could be that this whole quilt has curves in it...

If you are afraid of piecing a curve, watch the video tutorial on curves that I did by clicking here.  This is the technique I am using on this quilt.  Quick and easy!

Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I spent a good portion of it working on my second Bali Bed Runner!!!  I have some cool photos that I took that I wanted to share.  Making this bed runner requires you to make the arcs, the melons, and the center units.  Once all the units are done then you begin the curved piecing assembly.

Hello Everyone,

It has been a little bit since I blogged, I have been busy teaching and doing trunk shows.  This weekend I spent 3 days with some wonderful ladies at the Strong House Inn in Vergennes, VT.  This is where I go to teach a yearly retreat on Judy Niemeyer techniques.  Some of the ladies worked on the same things, others worked on different things.  I would like to share with you some of the highlights.

Hello Everyone,

Sorry I have been remiss in blogging lately.  I have been super duper busy!  That is definitely a good thing! So I am going to start with yesterday and then go backwards on my next blog post to last week.  I know reverse order isn't always the best, but it is what I have for now.

Yesterday, I spent the day with a fun group of ladies in Mt. Vernon, NY, the Pelham Quilters.  I taught the Total Eclipse Class.  This classic Judy Niemeyer pattern is one of my favorite to teach.  It is a beginner paper piecing class and can be taught in one day.  The ladies had a great time and made some terrific progress.
