Woven Bars for Donation

  Just 2 for donating … Not particularly fond of the blocks and how they’d look set side-by-side.  But love the color requirements.   DID enjoy making them.   Karen B

Sneak Peek Tonight

I will be finishing up the directions for the November Block–another quick and easy one–and sending them out later today (or possibly first thing tomorrow). If you want to start getting fabrics together … we’ll be making a 7 inch block from two fabrics in a color way we’ve used in the past: BACKGROUND – Black solids or black-on-black prints or VERY DARK fabrics in other colors. JEWEL TONES – color-saturated, rich colors based on gems like rubies, emeralds, and saphires. I think of jewel tones as having a little...

Blocks for October’s Pot

Here are my woven bars, which I’d like to add to the pot this month. They were fun to make and I’m thinking of putting some together for a little girl’s Christmas quilt; I think setting them will be quite a challenge. I’d like to keep the woven look, but something has to be done in between the blocks to make that happen. So now I’ll dig into my background and my Christmas fabrics… And, I received Karen’s little window blocks from South Africa, thus completing the collection and giving me another...

Hello!  And here are my blocks :)

Hello!  New girl here.  I’m Nancy, and I live in Southeast Texas.  I just discovered the site yesterday and decided to go ahead and join and get my blocks made.  I’m a stay-at-home mom, and run my own little quilting/quiltmaking business from a room in my house.  Even with all the sewing I do, I have to make sure I get some personal projects done, too!  Here are my Woven Bars blocks for...
