Busy, busy, busy

Busy, busy, busy

Only 2 from me for donation as I recently made a quilt with the express purpose of using up every scrap in my stash of cream material smaller than a half yard. It was obviously a success because a thorough search turned up only one small scrap, used for the end pieces here. Rest of the cream prints had to come from yardage and there is very little of that. I have been quite busy with my Plaid 9Patch win. There will be 8 rows of 7 blocks and there are narrow black borders between each one. Trying to match 8 points along every edge was a bit daunting and had I chosen that method, it is likely I still would be looking for the first two that matched up.

Shhh … It’s the September SNEAK PEEK

If you have made and posted Many Triangles blocks, you should have received an email message from me with the sneak peek at the guidelines and direction for the September block. If you should have received the sneak peek but don’t have the email, let me know. Similarly, if you shouldn’t have received the sneak peek (because you haven’t made/posted blocks this month) but DID receive the email, please let me know that I goofed. Next month we will be making blocks from at least four fabrics: White – solid or white on white (WOW) for background Green – solid, tone on tone or multicolor print that reads as green Plus 2 fabrics in a color of your choice, one should be darker than the other. In honor of the members of our community in the southern hemisphere, the theme next month will be: Think...
