Projects from Sew Down Portland

I had a wonderful weekend in Portland and met lots of wonderful and talented people.  I did not get as much done as I had wanted to - I am sure this has to do with the fact I always underestimate how much time it takes me to do something and the fact that I am always adding projects to my list.
Here is my Mini Shooting Stars Quilt Top I completed this in the class taught by Lee Heinrich.  In class she had us do flying geese the traditional way as well as paper piecing.
The next quilt I finished was the You +Me quilt by Heather Jones.  This went together really fast.  My daughter is already claiming this one. 
Here is my improve round robin block that was done in class with Sherri Lynn Wood.  The class was a lot of fun - it really got me out of my box.  I had a lot of trouble working without a ruler.  I am planning on cutting this block up and making some throw pillows with this.
I had to leave Julie Herman's class early as I was worried about the roads.  Portland managed to get a snow storm in the middle of Sew Down.  I will post a picture of my project as soon as I complete it.
I guess I have quite a bit of quilting to get done this weekend.  What are your plans for the weekend?  Linking up with Amanda Jean for finish it up Friday.


  1. I love the You+Me quilt top. So modern, so striking. I am loving seeing what people have made during Sew Down... I am living vicariously through the photos and stories.

  2. I saw one of these shooting stars on IG tonight as well. I love how nicely yours turned out!!
