As promised here are more pictures of what the women from the Small Block Sisters Quilting Bee were working on when I recently stopped by the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Above Mary Ellen Dunneback is working on her Dear Nancy blocks. Each block is 5 inches square. Some are foundation pieced. One of the things that impressed me about these blocks, along with how expertly they are done, is that Mary Ellen is very organized and has all her materials neatly together in a binder. What a great idea.

Above Nancee M. uses freezer paper to make her Dear Jane Ann’s Folly blocks. She sews them by hand. She said the freezer paper helps to keep the fabric stable and there is less stretching during the sewing process.

Marie McDonald is working on this block from Christmas Spirit In The Country book by Indygo Junction. It will make a beautiful quilt.

Don’t forget the free June redwork pattern posted on the sidebar of blog.

Burda has lots of free patterns to download. Check out the carpet bag and cell phone bag.
Until Next Time: Happy Quilting
