Land Of Lakes Quilt Study Group (LLQSG)
I combined a couple of the topics were covering in the year - Strippy and Whole Cloth. I chose five prints for one side - and used a Benartex Stamped Whole Cloth for the other.
Hands on is a great way to learn and study group members are a wealth of information.
Not too photogenic.

I used the Welsh Beauty Crib Size.
The quilt has a knife edge and thin cotton batting.
I did nor have any trouble seeing the stamped lines and the lines did wash right out when I completed the quilt.
I suspect issues arise if before completing it is pressed with a very hot iron, left in the sun or other events the instructions caution against.
This is my Jane Whitman Sampler.
It is a off-white linen stitched over two threads.
The kit is still available HERE.
It is the reproduction of a 1756 Rhode Island piece.
The sewing etui was a gift. I don't think all of the pieces are a matched set but I love it for the gift it is.
The lid contains sewing needle papers.
Other contents include:
Bone handled folding knife, awl and hook,
Needles, scissors and sterling thimble.
The thimble is held in place with a clip.
Detail of bone handles.
Love the pocket knife!
O have a pearl handled one I received when I was 12 - no sewing etui with it though...
The needle packaging cautions not to be mislead by knock offs...
I love selecting projects to try techniques new to me - do you?
Have a great week!
