Happy Wednesday! This week we have a very sweet block by Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts. Before we look at Corey's block, I want to share a new book by Moda All Stars, Merry Makers.
Just as summer is ending, this holiday book will hit the shops in a couple of weeks. Whoa! I need a little Fall and Halloween time, thank you very much, but I'm not like the rest of you who probably shop in the summer and can enjoy the Fall and be totally ready for Christmas and the holiday season. I'm never ready.
Pick a project, or three, to make to give, or as a treat for yourself!
This is a great book full of projects of all shapes and sizes. I hope you will pick up one. And, so just for fun, we (Martingale) are offering an e-book to one of my followers, but you must leave me a comment about the book or favorite handmade gift you have received. If your comment is chosen by the random number generator, I hope you have provided an email address. Just saying. This contest closes midnight central daylight time, Labor Day, September 3. Winner will be announced next Wednesday, here, on my blog.
This is my project, Winterlude. Not the typical red and green, but it could be. I love decorating with blues, especially indigo, during the winter. The beautiful indigo floral is from Rachel Remembered and the stars and sawtooth border are a combination of indigo prints throughout my lines.
I hope you leave me a comment for a chance to win.
Back to BlockHeads....
My version of Corey's Patchwork Flower, Block 13
This block is 6" x 12" finished
Isn't this a sweet set shot? LOL I love getting things out to create a photo. This block begged for a special photo on the little green bench.
Thanks Corey, for such a sweet block!
To download Corey's pattern, please CLICK HERE and you will go to her blog and her tips for putting the block together. My suggestion is to label your color choices on the pattern, or better yet, download Corey's line drawing for coloring before you cut. Did you know she offers a line drawing with each block? Pretty cool, I think! I cut too many background squares for the flip and sew corners. LOL. They will be welcome in another block I'm sure.
Be sure to visit all the other BlockHeads to see what they have made.
The blocks are growing, and I planned a shot but someone distracted me....
adorable Miss Molly
Closing out this week with 2 other cool cats, my grandkids, Reed and Madison.
Happy Sewing. Happy first days of School.
Happy end of Summer ( we still have a hot September ahead)
Until next time ~
