Steam Punk Fever!
Tasmania was wonderful! No, it was more than wonderful, it was truly amazing! You'll get an understanding of what I mean as soon as I update you with pictures of our trip. We decided to go at the last moment as we realized that we better take the trip before it got too cold down there. When we were there I got to meet the lovely Jess in person, who I could have chatted with all day. I wish we lived closer Jess!
Before I left I actually made all these Steam Punk blocks pictured above. I wanted to have a hand sewing project while we were away so now all the center circles are attached. It was good to take them with me as one must have beautiful fabric to stroke and admire at all times! The photo above does not depict the way the blocks will look once sewn into the quilt as they will be sashed and set on point--not horizontal as shown.
If you haven't joined the Steam Punk Quilt Along, then you must! We have lots of tips, advice and general help and encouragement within the group and all are welcome! Even if you just want to peek in and see what we are up to. Just watch out, you might catch the Steam Punk fever as well!
If you tweet or are on Instagram, you can find us, or post your own progress using the hashtag: #steampunkquilt I hope you will join along with us!
