Oh, now this I think I might be able to do--I wish the class was in my neighborhood and starting now, not back in March. It is the double wedding ring quilt done with machine piecing and machine applique onto foundation blocks. All the curvy stitching has made me adore this pattern and fear it.
Have any of you done this challenging piece in any way? I've seen a great poston Crafy Stylish about how to make a small one for a picnic basket. Maybe that is the way to go. I've seen many of Denyse Schmidt's Single Girl quilt, but I wanted to do something for a friend's wedding. I may chicken out and do something much easier.

A while ago, I posted a number of free block or the month projects. Here are four of the five blocks of Gail Pan's BOM. The suspense is a bit much for me to manage, but I've enjoyed making each and have the fifth ready to start. I haven't added teh sashing, though I have the material--just debating whether they should all be the same color or if I should use a variety. These dainty medallions, stitch up very quickly and other stitchers have made the pieces their own by varying the colors and the backgrounds.
I also stitched up her Christmas Gift. . . what do you think? Should it become a quilted wall hanging, a table runner, just a framed little bit?

She is also an amazing seamstress. This little dress was for my niece D. I intended to make it for her as an Easter gift. I cut the pretty Amy Bulter fabric, but knew I wouldn't get it done. Bless Mom for taking the pieces and making it. Of course, she had it done in time for Easter.
