Box Block Projects are coming soon
Our weather here in Iowa continues to be beautiful, I can’t believe it is November! I spent some time in my quilt studio working on a couple Box Block projects. Little Sadie spent some time with me as Builder Bob was gone, if he is home…..she is his shadow. We have small beds or pillows everywhere for her. I made a pillowcase out of this cute fabric with tigers and lions on it. I made it like a envelope pillow so the sides are closed.
If you missed my Box Quilt Block tutorial, you can find the link below.When I pulled out these neat Island Batik fabrics the other day, I found a bunch of small blocks that I think I made last month……or the month before. I decided to put the blocks together in a small table runner. My plan was to make ONE table topper but plans change. When I had the darker block done I carried it upstairs and it looked beautiful on my new couch…….so I decided to make a couple pillows. I had one of the lighter block made and didn’t want to add anymore blocks to my block UFO basket so I made a couple more and I will have a batik table runner that will make a perfect Christmas gift for our neighbor.

I also spent part of the day watching a class called Greeting Cards in Photoshop on CreativeLive by Khara Plicanic. She is a excellent teacher! I got to watch it free – just yesterday. It was a great class on working with Photoshop and fonts, I really enjoyed it and even learned a couple new things in Photoshop. The class is normally $29 which I think is expensive (just my opinion). I wasn’t able to download the class materials which were mockups. I did learn about a couple new fonts that I really want to buy…….soon. I always try to buy classes when they are on sale.
CreativeLive offers some classes free for a limited time. Take a look and see if there is anything you are interested in.
For a limited time CreativeLive has some goodies but oldies on sale – save up to 50% on selected classes at CreativeLive.
I’ve been taking Sadie on walks, she gets so excited when she sees me start to put on my walking shoes! We got up to 1.3 miles the other day before she got tired. How did I know……she headed right for the car! I can’t believe how smart she is!
Yesterday there was no one at the part and I was able to take off her leash, we are heading back to our car.We walked down by the boat ramp but she had no interest in the river. I wonder where we will go today.Check out this Box Quilt Block Tutorial!
