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!

CHERRIES JUBILEE

CHERRY SCRAP BLOCK

 

        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!

Block-of-the-Month Quilts go for good cause

26 Apr

VERA'S BOM

 

                   I designed a block-of-month for my guild newsletter last year (now my pattern “SIMPLY SAMPLER”).

    Miss Vera (who also is a CASA volunteer)(and quite the overachiever) made four of these quilts and donated two for the CASA auction.  They sold for $500 and Vera was told they were going to a good home.

    Bless you, Vera, for all the ways you give of yourself to this cause.

   Aren’t quilters just the best!
