MODA - Sampler Block Shuffle - Week 11

Here is the last of blocks (an applique one) and the finishing instructions according to the MODA designer.  I love the stripey way it is set.  You don't like it?  Then you can choose your own setting.  Or make more blocks and make it bigger.  Remember "Quilter's Choice".  I hope to have my quilt done by February 1st.  I have all of you to help me be accountable.

 I'm trying to get a Block-of-the-Month quilt done so I can have it to hang at camp.  You don't know what camp is?  Something To Crow About hosts 40 quilters twice a year for four days at the McKenzie River Mountain Resort in Blue River, Oregon.  We've been doing this for about 15 years.  Everyone has a fabulous time with lots of quilting.  If you are interested, give us a call and we will give you all the details so you might be able to join us at a future camp.

MODA -Sampler Block Shuffle - Week 10

Three more blocks to add to your pile.  One more block and finishing instructions to go.  As you will see, I changed the piecing of one of the blocks shown.  A great way to add a different block with the same cutting instructions.  Change the background (either light or dark).  Or maybe using more than one background in one block.  What about star points in?  Or out?  For me it's always "Quilter's Choice".  Make it your own by changing a few things.  Some quilters change just a few things and other change a lot of things.  Use you favorite fabric in every block or just a few.  Whatever works for you.  Enjoy,  Kennette

MODA-Sampler Block Shuffle - Week 9

Are you keeping up with all the blocks?  I love the small size.  They are easy to do and it doesn't take too much time.  This week I needed the time.  My Mom ended up in the hospital and my time isn't my own.  So I'm thankful for the holidays and thankful for the few blocks.  There are only a few more posts for blocks.  You will get a total of 30 blocks.  Only one more applique block is scheduled.  Are you excited about what your finished quilt will look like.  It's a little different and I like it.  Are you curious yet???
