I saw this variation of Sunset Ridge Quilt (Moda Bake Shop) Crafty Mummy  blog.  The original quilt is by Chrissy Lux  Sunset Ridge Quilt 

I have this jelly roll that I probably got on sale, since I don't buy them often.  I think I was going to make a tote with it.  I used some of it when I made the floor mat.  See below before it was trimmed.

 I like the fabrics but .....  I think the remainder of the jelly roll would linger in my stash.  So when I saw Crafty Mummy's blog post I thought I would use up the fabric in a similar quilt.

I considered making it as a leader/ender but it quickly had momentum and only took one hour for a row to be completed.  Will post pictures after vacation.

Grace Errea Workshop

Quilter's Guild of Plano hosted Grace Errea as a Speaker last week.  She is a great speaker and teacher.  Here is her website

I would have taken both workshops that were offered but had a recital to attend on Saturday.  I hope to take more classes from her in the future.  Pictured below is part of my project.  The class was cutaway or reverse applique.  I have a couple more stems and a few more leaves to do before putting it onto a background. 

Nothing like getting sidetracked when there are projects I want to finish, but I am very happy I learned these techniques.  I will finish this soon, I hope.  I am cleaning the sewing room today.
