my small world section three

section three is complete

section three has house block 1 and 2, flying geese, an arrow, a pinwheel , 2 fabric panels and  the sky along w a few other bits and pieces

house block 1 involves a set in seam
i made a second house to demo a set in seam...my poor brain struggles with this...

FYI  if you have jen kingwell's pattern....and you prefer paper piecing  you can contact sarah [ who has spent a lot of time converting]  for free templates @ sewwhatsherlock 
     thank you sarah for being so generous with your talents and thank you susan [ from our class] for sharing sarah's blog with us ~ personally i am really going to appreciate these templates in section seven !  xo



                                                              happy friday xo pam

my small world section two




section two is smaller and easier , has a few repeat blocks and a bit more applique ~  i switched the bottom apartments cuz i liked the placement better 

and i still have a lovely pile of mess/ possibilities on my cutting table

having a design wall is so appreciated with this project...i am keeping all the repeats to the left along with future possibilities

loving the middle eastern block houses and the teeny tiny 2" churn dash blocks...again i used the spray starch method for the applique and the quilt in a day triangle square up ruler for the churn dash blocks~ i also found an easy tutorial to make perfect flying geese here

and i really tried to let my crooked city block from section one go...
but i just couldn't...it took about an hour to pick out and fix ~ and i am much happier 

looking forward to tuesday's class xo pam

my small world by jen kingwell second time around ~ section one complete

started  this quilt for the second time around here and  ta-da section one is complete ~  i am teaching this class at quilting mayhem
five sweet orange peel blocks done w my favorite spray starch method...i first learned this method from figtree

pinwheels and hour glass blocks are made with my favorite
quilt in a day triangle square up ruler

this is the top half of the first section...mostly sky with the city block
this is the bottom half ~ i modified a few blocks here that called for the small templates... the bottom left house is a good example...house #3 in the book is super cute but i opted for easier~ plus i love that there is so much room for improv with this pattern

and i love my little orange house

also saving time by making  the repeat blocks ahead of time

              i am enjoying the process even more second time and i am excited to teach this fun class !

Next - "My small world section two"
                            
                                                                  happy monday xo
