A Day's Work .....

Attended a workshop with Chris Jurd on Friday and had a wonderful day!

We were making foundation pieced New York Beauty Blocks.  I'm making new quilts for grandsons who have outgrown the ones I made for them a couple of years ago!!!  and New York Beauty blocks seem like a great design for teenage boys.

Chris is a great teacher and her approach to foundation piecing works so well.  If this is a skill you would like to master ... then a Chris Jurd class is well worthwhile!

We worked on three foundation designs during the day each a little more complex ....  I managed to almost complete all three ......

The only downside I can see to foundation piecing is removing the paper so I'm trying out a couple of the wash away paper products to see how they go with these blocks.  While there is a cost,  I think is might make the process much more enjoyable!!  Will let you know how it works!!!
