Daily Update - December 31, 2021
What am I Doing?
I will be posting the video for the latest block later today. It is all recorded, now onto editing. The page will be uploaded today as well. Happy New Year!
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 31th only.
This square is slightly bigger than the squares I usually make but you can decrease the size by using a smaller hook. I know technically that the year 2000 is the actual last year of the 20th century but since this is the last year of the century that begins with a 1 and this is the last square I designed in the year 1999.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Not Free.
Beads made from this bead sheet would be really pretty combined with white, clear, pink, crystal or pearl 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
