Block of the Month

Saturday saw the first of Mays ‘Block of the Month’ this month Chris is teaching us the ‘Ohio Star’ (it’s her favourite block) A good block for practicing your quarter square triangles. the results looked fantastic…

Last Saturday was the April Roll-over Quilt class and Chris was really putting the ladies to the test – 40 nine patch blocks, 6″ blocks at that, so cutting 1 1/2″ strips and after sewing the strips together, sub cutting them up into 1 1/2″ units – it certainly kept them quiet! The finished results were stunning…..

Did you notice that those blocks where also in an ‘Ohio Star’ setting, I told you that it was Chris’s favourite!

I’m at a workshop with Jan Hassard on Sunday, organised by Staffordshire Patchwork & Quilters – ‘Dazzling Diamonds’ I’ll let you know how I get on.

Until next time                                                                                                                                                   Happy sewing x
