I finished piecing my quilt top! Because of how it's made, you don't have much control over the layout, but I didn't mind, because I didn't have to fuss with it!



Now, I have to learn how to do free motion quilting Smiley

Ludi, I definitely am a beginner quilter! The jelly roll quilt top sounded like a good way for me to get my feet wet. The top is supposed to take 45 minutes, but not for a newbie like me! It took us 45 minutes to figure out how to do the first part right (or mostly right- I have a few seams pointing the wrong way). I think I might finish the top today or tomorrow. Then, I have to practice quilting- that will be the tricky part! But, even if it isn't perfect, it's for me, so it'll be just fine Smiley

Research Project Name: Free Motion Jelly Roll Quilt
Team: Textbook
Brief Description: I'm going to attempt to make a quilt using a jelly roll and I would like to try free motion quilting to quilt it.

Project plan:
1. Make the quilt top using a jelly roll (tomorrow, I hope).
2. Make a couple of potholders to practice free motion quilting on.
3. Sketch out the free motion design.
4. Make the quilt sandwich.
5. Have at it with the free motion quilting!
6. Make some bias binding.
7. Bind the quilt.

I'm expecting this to take me into the fall games. While I'm planning to get the basic top made tomorrow, and maybe give the free motion quilting a try this month, I won't be able to tackle the rest until at least September!

I got my shirt today! And, if I wasn't standing on my porch on the way out for the day, I would have changed into it immediately. I love it! I'm definitely wearing it tomorrow Smiley

Thanks again, LovelyMiss!

I would love to have that in my classroom! But, it would get broken within the first week, I fear. Of course, if I had a 3D printer, I could just make a new part!

Whoo-hoo! I get to be the first to post pictures! Smiley

I got two amazing patches for my science themes- meowari picked Earth Science and Life Science, and she did a beautiful job with her interpretations.

First- Photosynthesis!



Second- Earthquake! (A normal fault zone is pictured Smiley )



The patches are a combination of applique and embroidery and the details are amazing (check out all of the little trees in the earthquake patch and I love how she used different fabrics to represent different rock layers).

I love them both and now I think I'll be spending some time over Labor Day weekend with stitching patches together so I can hang it up in my classroom (and continue adding patches as I get them).

Thank you, meowari!

I'm going to try and get some good light to post my pictures right now. And, you can claim again whenever you're ready, meowari!

I wish I could join in on this round! School starts in a week and a half, and September is a crazy month. But, I'll be looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with Smiley

Cool idea, calluna! I got a little bit done today, but not nearly enough!

puzzled-penguin, if I was drinking anything just now, it totally would have come out of my nose! Smiley Grin Cheesy And, oh, how I wish I could put that on a shirt and wear it!
