The Mod Squad met today at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Last month we decided we wanted to try something new and started collecting striped fabrics. Today we used these fabrics to learn how to make quilt as you go blocks. Above, Bev shows us her first block.
This is Adrienne's first block. Where others are using solid fabrics and stripes, Adrienne is making a stripes and dots quilt.
Each participant was asked to make two blocks so she could learn how to attach them. Above, are Donna's blocks before they are quilted.
And these are Donna's block after they are quilted and connected.
Peggy has her two blocks completed and ready to quilt before she can attach them together.
Diana's has two blocks completed. One is quilted and the other one is ready to be quilted.
Adrienne has her two blocks quilted and attached.here. When I first saw The Quilting Edge blog I fell in love with all that Marianne does. I followed her QAYG tutorial and made the quilt above. Recently, I accidentally left my quilt at the shop and discovered others were interested in making one too. So today I showed people what I learned at The Quilting Edge. There are lots of beautiful projects to see on Marianne's blog, as well as many tutorials. Take a look. I hope that next month everyone will bring her blocks/quilts so we can see the progress being made.
ON ANOTHER NOTE: Did you go check out the Row By Row Shop Hop website. This is a must for anyone traveling this summer. You won’t want to miss this.
Cluck Cluck Sew has a tutorial for a Squares and Strips Bed quilt.
Until next time,
Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
