Last Saturday the girls were very busy and focused in the classroom at In Between Stitches. They created these beautiful Country Charmer blocks for you to see today. Don't they look fabulous together! Add some sashing and we have a great scrappy quilt.
They quickly got to work cutting and laying out their cut fabrics on the block layout sheet.
The block layout sheet keeps you organized and accurate.
If the piece doesn't fit, then you cannot commit....to using the piece.
Many of the girls shopped in their stash, I mean SABLE. Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy. This is a wonderful scrap quilt, because that is all you need for the blocks.....just little scraps. Now you will need yardage for the sashing and borders, but the word of the day is SCRAPPY for this quilt.
Here we all are at the end of a very productive day. The best thing is, they are still smiling! I didn't work them too hard. I like everyone to be successful in my classes. I want you to be able to go home and confidently make more blocks on your own. Although, if you do need additional help, I'm at the shop every Monday for consultations.
Speaking of "the shop"....doesn't it look beautiful. Leslie and Melissa, the shop's owners, have created a haven for quilters. All who enter here can't help but be happy and filled with quilted inspiration. We are so fortunate to have the shop in our community, and we love sharing it with the quilting world.
