Block-a-Long #5: 9 Patch

9 Patch
9 Patch

Like this 9 Patch? I am pretty happy with the color combination. I love that aqua fabric and wish I had bought more. Oh well. Fortunately there is always more fabric.

As you can see, I have included a large print in this block. This is a demonstration of a large print working in this project.

This block is suitable for 2, 3 or 9 fabrics. Think about the look you are seeking.

Note from the Management: Please comment, letting me know if you would like this project to continue or if you really don’t care. Thanks.

ATCs from CQFA

The other day I wrote about the CQFA meeting and the activities in which we participated. I finally processed all the photos. They aren’t great, because there were a lot of people swapping this time. I came into the room late and everyone was ready to go, so I had to be quick about the photography.


I picked the 2d one from the right. I liked the spiral.

I don’t remember who made these, but they were made from oilcloth.


Maureen doesn’t usually make sets. I got one of hers as well: the one in the upper left hand corner.

Bron & Sue

I would have loved one of Bron’s paper dolls, but they went quickly!


I also missed out on Julie’s. Hers had some plastic covering some loose art materials.


Virginia also made a bunch for the show.


Dolores always does fabulous work. I picked the one shown in the bottom left hand corner. I love her beading.

I was able to choose one of Sue’s as well. The one on the far left now lives at my house. she used a great technique. I wish I could remember the name. She might show us how to do it at an upcoming retreat.


Nobody really liked mine – or else everyone else’s were such high quality that my shaving cream marbling technique was overshadowed. I don’t know. I don’t think mine were crappy.

Creative Prompt #86: Lines

Note from the Management: Please comment on whether or not you would like to see this project continue and why. Thanks.

Definition: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A representation of one line segment

Three lines — the red and blue lines have the same slope, while the red and green ones have same y-intercept.

In Euclidean geometry, a line is a straight curve. When geometry is used to model the real world, lines are used to represent straight objects with negligible width and height. Lines are an idealization of such objects and have no width or height at all and are usually considered to be infinitely long. Lines are a fundamental concept in some approaches to geometry such as Euclid’s, but in others such as analytic geometry and Tarski’s axioms they enter as derived notions defined in terms of more fundamental primitives such as points.

A line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by two distinct end points and contains every point on the line between its end points. Depending on how the line segment is defined, either of the two end points may or may not be part of the line segment. Two or more line segments may have some of the same relationships as lines, such as being parallel, intersecting, or skew.

Some lines from Wordsworth:

.... Are clad in one green hue, and lose themselves
      'Mid groves and copses. Once again I see
      These hedge-rows, hardly hedge-rows, little lines
      Of sportive wood run wild: these pastoral farms, ....

Yes, that tablecloth isi replaced the photo so you could see the crimson. Not sure what was going on with the lighting in the original photo.
