Glam Clam

One last finish to share before the end of the year... after my sewing drought I came back with a vengeance thanks to all to my amazing quilty friends:-)  It started when they convinced me to join them at Latifah Saafir's workshop for the BostonMQG.

I was hoping for her Glam Clam Workshop but instead we ran her Bias Tape Applique class.  In getting ready for it I decided I should at least try using her Clammy ruler before I went so I could ask her any questions that came up.  Of course I immediately dug into my Mendocino stash.

I needn't have worried, it went together as easily as advertised and in no time I had a pillow cover pieced together.

For the quilting I just echoed along the tops of the clams - simplicity at it's finest!  I bought the 12" Clammy ruler so it's just a matter of time before I have a quilt as well.

And now I can add it to my collection.  Wrapping things up with this week's Finish it Up Friday by Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. Oooh these are all such lovely pieces! The fussy cutting is just such a wonderful touch.

  2. Thanks for posting this. I have the Clammy ruler too and want to use it to make a quilt, possibly Kaffe Fassett fabrics, so good to know it works easily. I like your pillow, good showcase for that fabric collection.

  3. Pretty and what a lovely collection you have!
