WIP on Wed - July 20

Not much quilting time for me this week, just work, fun travel and a couple days under the weather.

Still slowly working on Esther's block using back basting.  A couple more evenings of TV and I should have this one done.

And I got sidetracked designing a beginners sampler quilt.  A couple of the lady riders from the motorcycle club were talking this weekend about taking a quilting class.  I told them that was a silly idea since I'd teach them.  I put together several blocks that look hard but are actually easy.  The missing 3 blocks will either be paper piecing, applique and curved piecing or 3 more 9-patch variations depending upon their confidence levels at that point.

Now I'm off to Work on Wed...

Love your little bird. :) And how nice of you (and fun) to set up lessons for the bike ladies!

I love the bright colours you're using. It's so inspiring to see the blocks made by different people.

That is a great idea making a sample quilt for beginners. Good luck with this project, would love to see each quilt ones they're finish.
