I spent some time with students last week at Sweet Home Quilting, a local quilt shop and INNOVA dealer.
In the morning, the monthly lecture/demo class met for Color My World. This runs all year, and allows those making the 2021 Block of the Month quilt for The Quilt Show to show off their progress in person and get specific help as needed. Great ideas come from this sharing experience.
Cyndi always has good ideas and she adapted the Little House in the City pattern to have fewer seams in the background. In the lower portion, she combined sections 1, 2 and 3 first, then added the one piece of background to either side. Very clever:
On the left, is the original pattern, blocks made by my friend Pam. On the right are Cyndi's blocks, before the trees are added.
