Free sew along, last Block!!!!! (19)

I hope you are all staying warm if you live where it is Winter! We got about 10-12" of snow during the evening last night until this afternoon. I think it's beautiful, and I don't really have to go out in it except to go out to my sewing room. I did some shoveling though, and threw snowballs at Chester! He loves the snow! I wish I had taken a picture of him having fun, but I couldn't take them while playing! Maybe when the hubby comes home.

This is looking out my sewing room/office window! Pretty!

I didn't realize I was looking through the screen! Haha!

 

Since I was busy preparing for the Spring time Blog Hop, I procrastinated on the last block of the sew along. But here it is! I hope you know how to paper piece! If not, we will be making a video for our Primitive Quilts and Projects YouTube channel very soon! If you wanna make it RIGHT NOW, there is a wonderful paper piecing tutorial at Fons and Porters website! It's not a tough one, but you will want to give yourself bigger pieces of fabric than you think, just to make sure it covers! The foundation pattern will be downloadable from my website, any time now...just sent it to the web lady!

This block finishes at 4" x 6" once sewn into your quilt! Make sure when you trim the sections while paper piecing, that you leave 1/4" seam allowance past the dark solid drawn line! I'm thinking a bunch of these would make an awful cute quilt! I designed the block with EQ-7, just so you know!

Next week sometime, I'll start posting how to sew it all together! Then........the borders!

Thanks so much for following along, and keep warm!

  5. Love the star! Thanks for doing the sew-along! I was wondering if there was a way to put all the block directions in one place? I'm behind and wanted to print them off! Thanks again!

  11. I love this quilt! I've just found this site and want to know where I can get all the patterns to catch up? The snow looks pretty in your yard, but here, after feet and cars get in it, it's grey and ugly. I do believe we've had enough snow for this season. I love your blog. Sharon K.
