New Blocks and Quilt Goodies!



These are the Drunkards Path blocks for Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt. These are so fast since I figured out how to machine piece curves. I don't do all that pinning I've seen on some demonstrations. I start with the large piece on the bottom and smaller piece on top, right sides together. I sew slowly and just make sure the smaller piece is being fed under the foot at the same rate as the larger piece.The seam comes out nice and even. They look pretty nice after a good ironing!

 

This is the Poppie block. I "cheated" by paper piecing it! It has some weird angles but was quite easy to make. 


Here are the goodies I bought when I went to the Mancuso World Quilt New England show. I had a wonderful time! I saw some beautiful quilts and attended a lunch/lecture with Bonnie Dwyer. I have lots of great quilt pictures but will wait until the show is over before I post them. If you ever get a chance to see this show, don't miss it! There are quilts displayed from all over the world. It's one of my favorite shows. Have a wonderful weekend!
