ARE YOU READY FOR SAMPLER?


September…a month with mixed feelings.  Happiness…the kids are going back to school and I will have more time to sew!  Yeah!  Sadness…the leaves are starting to turn and that means winter is on its way, which means we will be cooped up in the house because of the mounds of snow covering our streets, which means more time to sew!  Yeah!   But it also means that a new month is here and the first Sampler class for September will be held this coming Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Are you ready for Sampler?

At first this Signature Block looked simple to make, which is why (among other reasons) that I put off making it until the last minute. However, true to form, I had a difficult time piecing this block.  I think I took it apart three times.  It drives me nuts when things don’t match up like they should.  I started basting the seams first and finally got my points to match before I did a shorter stitch.  

Don’t forget to attend the Sampler classes at the shop this month.  Check the calendar on the sidebar for upcoming classes.

ANOTHER NOTE: 
  • Quilt Barn has a tutorial for a hexie placemat.  It has a modern look.
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
