A little update



It's been a busy and sometimes hectic past two days. I've been meaning to write but just couldn't get the time to do it. Tuesday at Sager Creek Quilt Shop in Siloam Springs Arkansas, my friend Pam Goggans, had a blockbuster class. It's a once a month class using Deb Tucker's trimmers. And by the way Pam has another one of her patterns published,



 this one was in the July/August issue of Fons and Porter's magazine, Quilting Quickly.



 Even though I have been using these trimmers for a few years now I always seem to learn something new. And this month was no exception. Learn how to make these shaded 4 patches units. I've seen the demo sheet and even have talked about it at quilt shows when we're there at the booth but personally have never made one. 



My goodness they are so easy to make this unit that looks so complicated. Here is a brief example of the steps taken to make the unit. And here is a link to one of Deb Tucker's YouTube videos showing you how to make it.
I love the Tucker Trimmer, it's one of my go to ruler/trimmer.



This is my block I made this month,



and then here's a group shot of all of our blocks that the class made with each individual holding their blocks.

Been making progress on the "Words to Live By" quilt. 
I completed sewing the HST yesterday and cut apart. 



Now I'm in the process of pressing and trimming. I'm using my Tucker Trimmer to do that.
I have half of the HST completed and hope to have these done by tomorrow.



I wanted to show my progress last night but we found the bathroom adjacent to the garage with water on the floor. Come to find out it was the drain that the air-conditioners condensing unit drains into. So last night we worked on how to drain it out of that room to outside. We ended up using garden hoses
This was 9:30 at night and I came into the house just ringing wet with sweat. This humidity is for the birds. Now it's just a matter of waiting for the plumber to call and make appointment to come out and fix that drain. Always seems like it's one thing or another happens

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
