Daily Update - November 12, 2021
What am I Doing?
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 November 12th only.
This tight fitting handle holder is just perfect for any cast iron skillet! It fits like a glove! I do recommend you use cotton for this pattern for extra protection. Do not substitute acrylic for this pattern. I also recommend that you do not leave this on the handle while the burner is lit. (especially a gas stove) It could catch fire. Only put it on when you are actually going to pick up the pan.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Always Free.
The lotus flower on this bead sheet is more of a stylized version of a lotus flower. I thought it was really pretty and would make pretty, dainty paper beads. I think small dainty beads made from this bead sheet would be great for wedding jewelry.
This is the 11th quilt block tutorial in a series on how to make quilt blocks using the new Quilt as You Piece Method.
