30 Blocks In 30 Days – Day 7
W E L C O M E
to DAY 7 of the
Quilt A Long and Blog Hop!
hosted by Carla from Creatin’ In the Sticks
A super easy block she calls ‘Stripper’ was offered and I decided that we could take it on.
Only two problems . .
1 – We/I have never pieced a block before or made a quilt project . . . and
2 – Our schedule is completely FULL as always with designing fabric, and another She Who Sews LANG calendar!!
So, I apologize ahead for not having a completed traditional project using this great block.
You can see Carla’s tutorial for #7 on her blog.
OK here goes.
This is our/my, first pieced quilt block ever. It’s true.
Actually we made two, just in case. Jackie cut and I stamped, inked and stitched.
Our minimal one block project will commemorate the event as a quilted wall piece to be framed and hung in the Joy Studio!
A reminder that it’s never too late to learn how to piece or quilt!!
Since we are waiting for our new fabric, “Paperdoll”
we used our partner Riley Blake Designs, Confetti Cottons in black and white and Aurifil thread for piecing.
I know it’s not much and I would love a quilt made using this block with each one turned and well, you never know. Maybe we/I keep piecing, right?
We had a lot of fun trying this and enjoyed the encouragement to participate.
Let us know how we did.
Carla was greatly instrumental in the only other blog hop I have ever participated in, the
2013 She Who Sews Sewing Room Hop!
THANK YOU again Carla!
BTW – Ask your favorite quilt shop to check out our new collection PAPERDOLL with Riley Blake at the
Spring, International Quilt Market in Portland May 18-20.
Delivers in August!
