We are planning to work on teaching her how to do hexagons for our campfire day. No, not ahhhh's. Just some flowers I think. And a fake campfire. And canned heat. And S'mores. And some fun for Stephen. Oh I forgot to tell you--he is joining us and will be linking up from his blog! He's got special activities.
Saturday people, come on it will be fun!!
Ok now are you ready for this? I've had my hand dyed fabric hidden away for so long. I am in love with it and all my fabric dyeing supplies are gone. Gone, gone, gone. (too many moves). Oh after today's post you will see why I want it all back! I suppose it is best to just wait until I move again. Well have a look at some of my pretties that were tucked away:
For the second project we were to choose two separate squares of fabric that contrasted.

Then we were to stack them on top of each other and cut out a simple curvy design.
Do a bit of swapping around:
Do some cutting:
And some converging:
Now, this one I wanted to add a really neat border on. I am still working on it though. And it may take until next week because...
I'm in the middle of huge school scheduling right now as Thursday is a big educators discount day with 20% off all supplies and curriculum. I sold a bunch of fabric on my swap to be able to stock Stephen's preschool area. Speaking of my short and cute little guy, he really loved this quilt project and he keeps going over to the design wall and looking at it and the borders. So today Stephen and I took some of the scraps and sewed them back together. He really was very proud when he added them to the design wall.
Here they are:
Love that boy!
And I love my hand dyed fabrics.
So glad I saved them for just the right project, even if it took years to find the right one.
