My WIP Wed #22 - Working with Jacqueline deJonge

Been sneaking bits of sewing time in around writing this week. I just couldn’t stay away from the bright, fun colors of my “Listen with Your Eyes” project from the Jacqueline deJonge class I took on Fri-Sat. What fun that was!! Her quilts are glorious, she had some important techniques to share, and the company was fantastic. But I don't have pics from class, isn't that dumb???!  Hey - I was doing good just to be prepared and able to go!


I came home on Saturday with a quarter section of one star put together and the beginnings of 4 checkerboard pieces “E”.



First order of business at home was to lay out the six remaining sets of strips for the diamonds before I forgot how to place them. 


(Yes, I did the first one backwards in class.) 




Actually got one whole set sewn up so far! Uh - That's a set of five green diamond points, not a whole star's set.  ;D


And I finished sewing those four E sections before the fabric squares got mixed up somehow. Well, you know - it takes a fair chunk of time and hemming-and-hawing to figure out where you want the blenders to go!


Here's looking at you!
Hopefully by this time next week I’ll have all the other star points made. 40 altogether. If I can get that done and have one BOM ticked off, I’ll be a happy woman. :D

Hi! That project looks amazing and very challenging! Sometimes it's nice to make something simple but sometimes it's a great enjoy to work with something very complicated that needs lots of thinking and work! What a great feeling when you have those blocks finished and start to see how it will be! Good luck and enjoy! x Teje

Wow! That is going to be gorgeous! I can see how you can get the pieces turned around! Definitely not something you can put away for months and easily come back to (my pattern). How cool that you could take the class!

Love this! Tedious, but looks well worth it!!

Elaine said...

This project does look like a challenge. I probably would have done the same mixups or more in piecing this. It'll look beautiful when done.

Rachaeldaisy said...

This is going to be an amazing quilt!!

Vivian said...

Oh my goodness. The quilt looks so difficult but looks do-able when I see your pieces. Looking forward to watching you work on it. Is that pattern easy to follow? I wonder how long it will take me to decide I want to make one. lol

Cassie said...

Love it! That is going to be an amazing quilt!!

Alicia said...

Connie said...

What an amazing pattern! Your colors are beautiful! Have fun! This is definitely one that you want to stay with so you keep it fresh on how to do it.

Kandra said...

Wow! I'm speechless - can't believe you are attempting that as it seems near impossible for me! <3 it tho!!!

Kathy said...

That is an ambitious project... it's going to be beautiful! Hope it goes well for you.

KristyLou said...

Oh my goodness, that looks tedious!!

Kate said...

If you went on a quilting massacre, you could have like, 10 finished projects in a month. That's crazy. Doesn't seem to be how we work though!!

The new project looks simply stunning!

liz said...
