Honeycomb Waffle Too class

 I had a great time last Sat. teaching the techniques to make the Honeycomb Waffle, Too quilt. Lots of enthusiasm and a new quilter who really needed to make that quilt. We all know that feeling, right?
 I love watching these 3-D blocks come together. The book ABC 3-D Tumbling Blocks and More by Marci Baker makes it so easy to do these types of quilts.

 I sewed with the Tuesday Sewers yesterday...another thing I love about summer break! I put the back together for the Red, White and True quilt and made the binding. I hit a little snag in my quilting plans when I hurt my knee the other night, but hope to get it loaded soon and quilted. I had planned to load the new sampler and get it quilted too, but haven't been able to.

Anyway...I also worked on some more blocks for the working model that I've been using for the classes. I hope to get it finished this summer. I am using mostly blacks and grays for this version.
My second Honeycomb Waffle, Too quilt, in progress

I've added the link to the free Craftsy version of the Red, White and True Quilt Along Guidelines and Supply List. It is in PDF form, so you will need Adobe Reader to download it. I will add a PDF version of the pattern for each week's tutorial to Craftsy for easy downloading and saving. These will be in pattern form, not tutorials.  Then you can save to your computer and make it again. 

I would love to see your fabric choices on my Flickr group....head over there and add a picture! If you have any problems, let me know and I will add them for you. I think it will be fun to watch everyone's progress.
