Another week, another block done. We are still early in this journey but the enthusiasim is building. I noticed in the comments that golfergranny said she has already picked out her sashing. Love to see pictures of the fabric. It might help get the creative juices flowing for the rest of us. You know when you go to a quilt show and see the most beautiful quilt, and the colours in it are the last thing you would choose but it looks fabulous? It gets us thinking outside of the box.
I also want to thank you for taking the time to vote. I was having a hard time making the decision as to which colour way to do. Stonehenge is the winner! Now I will have to get caught up.
I thought I would show what we have done so far. That's the 1930s on the left and Stonehenge on the right. We are only 4 blocks in so if you want to regsiter it will be easy enough to catch up!
This was todays block: Blazing Trail
This weeks block is Blazing Trail; it was a fun one block to do. It was a little more time consuming than the others, but it came together nicely. I pieced the Stonehenge block first. I constructed the four nine patch units individually then assembled them together to make one large block.
I did the 30's block in class and thought I might speed things up by strip piecing but I found the pressing got confusing.
I pieced together the three columns and then assembled them into a block. It was worth the try but in the future I will stick to the tried and true pattern.
Congratulations Magnolia, you are the winner of the draw this week. Email us to claim your prize.
This week tell us a funny quilting story, either a boo boo you made or something that happened when you were quilting and we will draw for a free fat quarter. I know I have a few good stories -
