Market day 2


My first class was with Marti Mitchell


 


 

She was teaching us how to use her rulers for fast log cabin quilts 


 


 

How to add movement by using different size logs
 


 

Playing with colour placement
 


 

Keeping it monochromatic




 


 

Using solid inserts with log cabin blocks
 


 

She had great techniques on layering your fabric 

She suggested to always cut selvage edge rather than WOF edge

That side has less give and will result in truer cuts
 



 


 


Her technique allows you to cut,layer and take to the machine to sew! 



 

I was very impressed with her knowledge



 

My favorite blocks were the pineapple blocks
 


 This was a very informative and enjoyable!

Great start to the fun!!

Happy Halloween...eat some good Canadian Chocolate for me today!!

Going to have to raid Charlene's stash today!!
