We saw some fun results from that challenge, so we followed it up with a new one--
The Economy Block from Red Pepper Quilts--
I made a small sample of some special little fabric pictures--
and I handed out instructions and material to make the first block, plus ideas on changing the block size and a sample layout. Can't wait to see if we have some show-and-tell of these blocks at our April meeting!
Another project that this group was offered last year was a series of 12 star blocks. Each 6" star block was set in the center of a bigger (12") star. Just to inspire some more creativity, I pulled together 4 samples of setting the 12 blocks together into a quilt. I used the Electric Quilt program to make the diagrams and figured out the yardage that might be needed--
Working with the EQ programs is easy to learn and with a little practice, yields great results!
Maybe you would like to join our next Circle of Quilters meeting on April 12! Just give us a call and tell us you want to be added to the gang! 651-429-1039
