Beginning Nov 1st and ending January 4th, 2016, Moda will provide us with 2 to 3 (6") block patterns each week along with tips and teaching tools. The 6" blocks are FREE downloads for you and will be posted to our website and facebook page for you to print out, however you will only have 2 weeks from the time the pattern is posted to print it out, then it will be removed.
There is a total of 30 block patterns and a finishing layout at the end of the program. I know this is a lot to do each and every week , but don't worry....just be sure to follow us and collect all of the patterns so you can do them now or later.. ( I did all three blocks in an afternoon).
The recommended fabric to do all of the blocks is ...2 layer cakes or 2 jelly rolls and some background fabric. Of course you can use your own fabrics , but lets support Moda and use there fabrics for the blocks.
I am making my blocks from Moda's Richmond Reds collection and will be putting the sample blocks on this blog and my facebook page each week for you to see.
We have layer cakes and jelly rolls in the Richmond Reds collection, also we have many other fabric collections to choose from....How about Kansas Troubles " Sunflower Song" or Barbara Brackman's " Alice's Scrapbag". The possibilities are endless ...so lets have fun! Send me a photo of your blocks and I will post them to our facebook page. * Link for the 1st 3 patterns at bottom of page.
Saturday was our annual Quilters Lawn Sale and what a great day!
The weather co-operated and we had a great turn out.
I wanted to get more pictures, but it got so busy so fast
that I was only able to take pictures of us at the very start
and of a few early birds....................................................
There were hundreds of bolts of fabric on sale along with books,
patterns, pre-cuts and lots of miscellaneous items and FREE Hot dogs!
Although the sale was good and the weather co-operated it has been a stressful week.
To start with the hubby ended up in the hospital for 3 days on strong antibiotics for diverticulitis in order to prevent having surgery, I was knee deep in preparing for the sale and the Row by Row shop hoppers were in all week long. I am exhausted but relieved that my husband is ok and that everything went well.
So now onto next week and our annual picnic for our sewing group.
Here are a few pics that I was able to get of the Lawn Sale
