I figured it out…that is what is missing in this time, variety. I don’t know about you but there is a lot I can do to cope with social distancing, but there are other days that I am just unable to getting myself moving. So, today’s blog will have a lot of different things in it to provide some variety. First up, is a QAL that I am participating in called Centred by Sandra at mmmQuilts!
This is not the final layout, but I did may the first and second blocks…it doesn’t require a lot of yardage, so I was able to work from my stash! The blocks are released on Fridays, and you can catch up quickly. I made both (8 blocks total) in under two hours on Saturday.
And, here is the back. Laurel and I have known each other for almost 20 years, She was the reason I joined Rising Star Guild – but she has since moved away. We do communicate frequently about our quilts (and other things too), it has been great to keep up this way. This is still a free pattern on my blog if you are interested in making your own.
Nancy, of Grace and Peace Quilting, made this terrific little quilt and blogged about it here. It is based on a pattern I did for the Partners in Design Sew Let’s QAL last year and you can find it here.
15 minute demos – all on facebook on the hour, some repeating on the half hour on Instagram. I’ll be there Friday at at 4 on Facebook and 4:30 on Instagram.
