working on samples

With all the kids gone, hubby is in Vegas, I stayed in SC for a little while longer to catch up some sewing with friends, playing cards with my folks and making some samples--oh, and a little sun too! :)
I realized that too many of my classes that I teach are too much for the beginners I have, so I've gone back to a little more basics. So, I'm starting off with a Disappearing 9 Patch that is so popular right now. I did mine a little more controlled (instead of totally scrappy) and forgive me, I saw one similar but now I can't find it to give her credit. I used black/white and lime green.

I'll use mine as a table topper in my new kitchen.

Rail Fence is another easy block to do for beginners, so I pulled the rest of the 2 1/2" strips I had used for another quilt in fall colors. I'm going to add random appliqued leaves on top, but didn't bring any fabric with me. It looks a bit wonky in the photo, but it's straight, honest!
I'm also offering another layout option for the Rail Fence and brought JUST what I needed for the top. Well, some of the fabric wasn't quite wide enough to get all the cuts I needed, so what's a quilter to do? Piece stuff out of the trash! I figured I'm acting like an original quilter! LOL It's okay, in the end, it won't be that noticeable. I couldn't finish the top here though, because although I wrote down the strips that thought I needed, I didn't bring them all! Oh well, I'll finish when I go back home.

On a non-quilty note, look what I found crawling up my book. It was so cute, I have no idea what it is, but an inch worm comes to mind. It was really skinny and long and had kind of webbed suction feet and webbed little legs in the front. It was almost like it should have been in a comic strip or cartoon. I had a hard time getting a good close up photo, darn camera! I wish the kids would have been here to see it. I didn't have the heart to kill it, so took it outside.

I love the lime green with the black and white! But of course, lime green is my favorite colour!

I'm not a big fan of the D9P quilts popping up all over but this one looks great -- I guess it's all in the color/fabric choices. Love the rail fence too -- looks all autumny which is my favorite season.

I love both of the quilts - but the lime with the Black and White... Oh man I am on my way for dinner!!!

You can keep the bug though!
