For a winter wedding – an Advent calendar

It was fun to just make up the Advent calendar as I went along with bits and pieces of seasonal fabric. Embroidery was shiny gold floss and it all ended up on heavy cream wool.IMG_1309


Quilt 3

The assignment was to take a traditional block and play with it/modernize it, so here it is.  This one is a little too long/too skinny right now, but is currently unquilted so I will play with the proportions before I move on.

Quilt top 2…  Improv which is a pretty good way to use up a lot of scraps from other quilts that are sitting in a box on the floor.  And now I’ll know to match up the cross strips even though “scrappy” is valued.wolf_reefstrings_quilttop_lesson2

Then it was really late and I had some extra fabric on the table so made a little piece – 15″ x 20″ more or less… I like it better!wolf_colorsquare-lesson2
