This podcast includes me admitting (YIKES) that I was wrong, talking about a local quilt shop FUN evening, discussing the Farmer’s Wife quilt AND reviewing a new-to-me notion.
As I mentioned, Rachel and I got 10 patterns from our LQS last night. The patterns that I discussed are from The Quilt Company. You can get the patterns there for $2.50 I believe. Oh, except the one created with the half square triangles…the that I said I might create an embroidery for the center square BECAUSE that one was designed by Robyn (the shop owner). If you want that one try contacting Robyn on her FaceBook page.
😳An addendum…. I went to my local quilt shop (LQS) to get next months block of the month (BOM) and I saw all these blocks already made and I have decided I kind a like the fabrics!!! Who-da thunk it!?!
My LQS is doing a block of the month using Marti Michell templates
Quite honestly, this is the first BOM I’ve ever been involved in locally. I AM thoroughly enjoying cutting and stitching the blocks EXCEPT for the fabric my LQS chose. I know, I know… beauty is in the eye of the beholder but do any of you see the beauty?? Maybe I should post a larger view!
As another example, here are a two more blocks.
While I am using the fabrics chosen by my LQS for my Block of the Month, Rachel is creating blocks with fabrics she has chosen. What do you think?
To create our BOM blocks, we are using templates that are brand new to me – the 3″ Square Basic Set by Marti Michell. Have you used her templates before? I LOVE how easy it is to match up pieces and POINTS for sewing AND there are no blasted dog ears to trim off.
Oh, in addition to using the template set, we added this book into the mix for MORE BLOCKS that can be created from this ONE SET.
Are you curious to see just what ONE SET of TEMPLATES can do??? Check out this very brief video.
Well, I better run! Gotta get this block done so that I can get the next one FREE from my LQS.
