Daily Update - December 30, 2021
What am I Doing?
Had a lot of personal stuff to take care of on 12/29 so I didn't get a chance to work on the next block so I should be able to get it finished and uploaded sometime later today or tomorrow. December 30 or 31.
I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.
The quilt in the photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.
This pattern is Free on December 30th only.
This motif can be used in an afghan or if made with thread can be a snowflake ornament. It is fast and easy to make and you could make several in an evening. Also if you make it into an afghan, it makes a great take along project. Imagine making all of the motifs in white with the last round in dark blue then stitched together with dark blue. It would look like snowflakes floating in a field of blue.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Not Free.
Beads from this bead sheet would look great with clear, white, pink or black beads in any piece of jewelry!
This is the 17th quilt block tutorial in a series on how to make quilt blocks using the new Quilt as You Piece Method.
This Week's Tip
Handy Pencil & Small Tool Holders
Use coffee mugs for holding small tools, pens, pencils and markers! Just keep the handle to the back to keep it out of your way. Then when it needs to be cleaned, you can either wash it by hand or put it in the dishwasher and get out another one to use for awhile
