Dresden Wedges/wheels

My first class today and I was introduced to the 1/4" foot on my machine, well hello baby! Love this foot, so so easy.

I bought some hibiscus material as a fat quarter bundle (x2) from Spotlight months ago and had intended on making some purses or something FUN and happy with it... With Coral's outdoor area maybe finished by Christmas she will need some thing to go on her benches outside. I know she could make something herself but I know she won't.

With my class today I needed to take a project ready to sew so I frantically cut these out this morning! I had a lot of things to choose from but until I could see what everyone else was working on I wanted to keep it simple and easy...

Christine is amazing, she's a great teacher, no fuss, fun and very friendly and helpful. No airs or graces just shows you how to do what you want to do. She showed me how to turn those odd triangles into these... I have enough to make 8 cushions but may stop at 6 and make some placemats or a table runner or something... we will see!

One wheel took about an hour from woe to go and I have an idea for a quilt for myself (FINALLY!!!)
