En Provence Progress a Sew Along Plus Free Classes

Happy Friday! I am going to lump a bunch of things into this one post today because there's a lot going on especially with free classes and buy one get one offers. Up first are my progress with the En Provence mystery quilt along. I managed to finish cutting and marking all of my fabrics to make half square triangles and quarter triangles

I do have the Angler 2 but it just never seems to work right for me. I'll have to look at the instructions again to make sure for next time when I have to make a ton of half square triangles. For the mystery quilts step seven instead of the solid square I am replacing it with the blue and yellow half square triangles.

While I was working on the hourglass block, it was going to be a lot of work cutting up the individual squares and then cutting them into quarter triangles. I sat down and figured out how to make it a bit faster and still keep the scrappy look. I had to do a sample to make sure. These were the outcome of my short cut. 

I am also sewing along with Jenny over at Clover and Violet to make the Floral Supply Case. I received the pattern a while ago but haven't had a chance to make one. This was the perfect opportunity to push myself to use the pattern to make this fun case. There's still time for you to join in. I love seeing what everyone is using for their case (s).

On another note. I do love taking classes online here and there and I usually grab one or two when they're on sale or better yet FREE for one week with Creative Live. I have taken their classes before and they're very thorough and I love the fact that I can send it questions and get a response while they're live.
