MAKE A BLOCK AND QUILT IT AT THE SAME TIME

 Have you tried the Quilt As You Go method?   It is a quick and easy way to complete a quilt and when you are finished you don’t have to take it somewhere to be quilted because with this method the quilting is completed too.  During class yesterday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, Marti tossed her block over her sewing machine while she dashed out for lunch.  I had to snap a picture!
 This is another block that Marti completed that day.  Each participant was to complete two blocks before the end of the day so she could see how to attach the connecting strips.
 This is one of Jane’s blocks.  Notice her straight line quilting.
 Above, Jane shows us both of her blocks.
 Take a look at Mary’s blocks.  Check out that one on the right.  She experimented with adding some angles to her block.  I love it!
 Oma made her blocks using homespun fabrics.  What a great idea.  I have a tub of homespun fabrics and now know what to do with them.  Wouldn't this make a perfect quilt for that special guy in your life?
 Above is Yvonne’s block.  She has taken the class before but wanted to make her quilt larger and is making more blocks.

 Busy little bees!  What a fun group. I hope they will bring their completed quilts back into the shop for all of us to see!

PS: The Quilting Edge on my sidebar has a wonderful tutorial for QAYG.

DON’T FORGET:
  • HEART OF WINTER TOUR is on February 7th.   The bus will take you to four different shops.  Lunch and dinner are included.  It’s not too late to sign up.
  • Due to the Heart of Winter Tour, FIRST SATURDAY SAMPLER moved in February ONLY from Saturday, February 7th. To Saturday, February 14th.  This will not interfere with Happy Scrappers as they will meet immediately after Sampler.
ON ANOTHER NOTE: 
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

These blocks all look like they'll make into really fun quilts. I hope they bring they're completed quilts too and I especially hope you'll be there to take tour photos for us.
