CHRY STAR 1

 

     Here is CHERRY STARBURST.   Block #874 in Vol #9.  I LOVE (!) designing sampler blocks.  When I worked at a quilt shop, I taught many sampler block classes and have been a block fanatic since.

 

 

 

                I am almost finished making this quilt for PRAIRIE QUILT GUILD SHOW in June 2014.  This is actually a  computer-generated photo.  The nearly finished product is even more beautiful!

        EXTRA BONUS!   With the “stitch and flip” construction, there are these wonderful pieces left, just waiting to make something fab!

 

 

 

CHERRY SCRAP PROJECT

 

        I started laying out some of these, playing with a design.  I plan to make a small wall hanging for our PRAIRIE QUILT GUILD  MINI – AUCTION.   Have plenty to make one for myself too.

     JUST FOR YOU –   leave a comment and be eligible for a drawing for your very own copy of QUILTMAKER 100 BLOCKS VOL 9.

 

 

      Thank you,   and Joyful Stitching to you all!

LOVELY BLUE SAMPLER

2014 BLUE SAMPLER

 

      MY, MY !!!   I’VE GOT THE BLUES!

      This beautiful sampler was made by Prairie Quilt Guild (Wichita, Ks)    member LEE MIESCHER.   She assembled the 12 blocks I designed for the 2013 newsletter, other sampler blocks, and a lovely sprinkle of  just-right applique.  She also did her own quilting.  

      I was quite taken when they unfurled it on stage for show-n-share this month.   Great job, Lee !!!!
