American Beauty Block of the Month
We are using Set L of Marti Michell's acrylic templates for our Block of the Month, American Beauty. Two blocks are shown here. The templates cut away any excess fabric and if you follow the pressing directions given in the instructions, little or no bulk is left at the seams.
When complete we will have a fabulous queen-sized quilt.
Every month I have been cutting additional blocks from my scraps for a future scrappy sampler quilt. This is a great way to chip away at the scrap pile, which seems to reproduce in the dark. This is a blue block using one of the block patterns. Changing the colour placement changes the look of the blocks. What Fun!
Congratulations to Barb (last month) and Kristie (this month) who won the draw. Remember to bring in your completed American Beauty Block for a chance to win the draw. Next month in keeping with the block name we will be have strawberry treats with our morning coffee.
There are still a few spaces left is you would like to join in the fun. Call the shop for details.
