When I got the pre-class packet, I chose one of Latifah's new variations for my first clam-shell quilt, so I waited until I got to class to cut anything out. But I had pulled a nice ole stack of Cotton + Steel from my stash, using the viewfinder's as my focus fabric. I also grabbed some neutral solids to add, just to lighten things up a bit.
I managed to get three rows done, having eight more to go for the "big baby" size quilt I'm planning. In addition to getting comfy with The Clammy and this pattern, I appreciated learning some tips from Latifih, and of course seeing some of her quilts. I think I already know how I want to quilt this and I plan a new-to-me binding method, which is very Latifah. All that to say I'm pretty psyched to keep working on my Half Baked Clams.
