Online Craft Club Show and Tell

Welcome to the first edition of the Online Craft Club Show and Tell. I know it’s late notice, but I’d love it if you play along with me. Here’s what you do:

Take a picture of your current project, whatever that happens to be. Or maybe one you recently finished. Or the materials for the one you are about to start. Let’s say materials for a project in whatever state it happens to be in at the time you snap it. On Friday, post the picture and tell us about your project. What you did, or what you are going to do. How much you are enjoying it, or hating it. You know–show and tell.

Then link your post to my weekly post. I plan to set mine to auto-publish so that I will be ready when you are. Tell your readers about it so they can play, too.

Just copy & paste the code below the graphic and get crafty with me!

Here’s where I spent a good bit of time this week:

This top is ready to be ironed and quilted. I’ll use that paisley for backing. It’s a sheet, LOL! I ordered the batting yesterday, so it should be here early next week. I’m planning to machine quilt this one, since I already have one hand quilting project going.

As you can see, DaBaby thinks it’s hers. She absolutely protested when I tried to take it up off the floor after I took the picture.

I started this quilt when we lived in Topeka, so at least 6 years ago, and I think closer to 7 or 8 would be more realistic. It is the second top I started, and I was actually making it with a friend. Make that ex-friend. But that’s another story all together. She has blocks like these, too. You may notice that some of the blocks don’t quite match up perfectly. Both of us cut squares for the quilts, and we thought that if we used the same measurement, we would end up with blocks the same size. Uh, no. Not quite. So, lesson number one–each set of hands is different, so don’t count on being able to use pieces from multiple cutters in the same quilt. I’m very pleased with it, though, and you will see it again, possible more than once.

If you play, be sure to leave a comment so everybody knows where to find you!
