OK onto quilting, that's what this blog is supposed to be about.
I'm still poking along on my Sacagawea Sampler by Minnick and Simpson. Here is an appliqued block I started Dec 8th, 2014. How can I remember that? Because I prepped it in a frantic moment when I realized I didn't have anything to do on a 6 hour plane trip Dec 9th! I have finally got everything stitched down and all the Mark B Gone, thankfully, washed out with a quick bath in cold water.
Next up is the Lone Star block. Thank goodness I have made one of these before and that I know how to set in Y seams. Good luck on getting this block done with the
Next up is the Basket block. Yet again, the directions are a major fail for this block. I'm referring to the borders. I hand pieced the zigzags and then machine pieced them to the center strip. Pinning very carefully ensured that this block turned out. I shall not be making the second block that has the same border. I've never been one to repeat less than relaxing blocks.
And in no particular order, here are the 9 finished blocks I have so far. I'm LOVING this sampler, and I've been using mostly Clermont Farms by Minnick and Simpson. My background is French Vanilla by RJR. Kind of hard to find, I buy it by the bolt from the warehouse when I purchase my rolls of batting and other longarm supplies. Yes, I'm still doing LONGARM quilting, email me if you would like me to help get some of your tops into quilts!
