I didn’t do much in the way of quilting this weekend because of our beautiful weather. I had to get outside and work in the yard. The temperature is supposed to drop tonight so I couldn’t resist taking advantage and be in the warm sun. However, I did manage to make a quilt block, which is the first block of the Sampler series at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Above is a good example of why I do not do much piecing.I did some un-stitching or “frogging” (as Linda calls it) and re-stitched the rows together. However, I still had this problem and had to “frog” again.
Finally, I came up with this block. It is far from perfect, but it doesn’t look too bad. Besides, I’m not frogging on this thing again! I do like the appliqué beside it. It is the free block for this month. No “frogging” there!
Have you checked out all the wonderful classes coming up at the Attic Window this week? Carolyn E. will be teaching you how to make a Keepsake Quilt. Vickie has an interesting class, Take 5 Takes A Walk. You choose five coordinating fabrics and in four hours you will have a lap quilt. Glenys has a felt wool wall hanging that she wants to share with you. I love the looks of wool. I’ll try to get a picture for you.
Check out Quilt Dad’s Block-a-palooza. It is a quilt-along that jumps from blog to blog, featuring two original blocks per week. You will find the links to participating bloggers and their tutorials here.
