What? You guys! 118 links last week. That’s, um, a bit beyond what I ever expected when I started this linky. But thank you! I’m so glad people find this little Wednesday party so helpful and enjoyable. Let’s keep ’em coming!
Farmer’s Wife Quilt-Along – currently caught up
Fourteen blocks down, 97 to go. : ) (One managed to escape from this picture, but I’ve rounded it back up.) Click here to read more about the blocks I made this week.
Skill Builder Sampler Quilt-Along – currently caught up
Loved this week’s cute Pinwheel Parade block. As I was working on it, it occurred to me that I’m currently working on two year-long bed-size sampler quilts (this one and Farmer’s Wife). And I just happen to have two little girls who need bed-size quilts made by their mommy. : ) So, a year from now, I’ll have one for each—it’s almost like I planned it or something. Summer Sampler Series
My first four blocks are above. We’ve been having a great time with this quilt-along, and it’s not too late to join in—click here for a list of all the posts so far. And our first paper-pieced block will be up this morning on Faith’s blog, Fresh Lemons Quilts. I know paper-piecing makes a lot of people nervous, but I promise it’s entirely doable, regardless of skill level. It is a whole different way of thinking about piecing, so sometimes it takes a little practice to get the concept. But once you get your mind around it and it clicks, it’s a piece of cake! Give it a try with us!
