Happy Monday Everyone! I hope that you are having a great day on this Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I am just recuperating from a fun, whirlwind weekend with 5 of my darling grandkids! I know why you raise your own children while you are young! :) We had a great time together and hopefully they had a fun time!
I took a sewing class a couple of weeks ago and made a darling Christmas apron! I was able to get one apron all done, but the bow, and another one half way done in the class, so you can see that this apron pattern is a simple one and yet it turned out so cute! Continue reading
Here is my new Block of the Month block from the “Sew Classic Sampler”.
It is called a Dresden Plate. I have never made one of these before and thought that they looked really hard, but guess what? It really was not that hard and I had fun learning how to make this block and making it!
I love the applique on this block and I learned how to make “perfect circles” by using a template and then run a gathering stitch around the outside and gathering it around the template. Then iron with a good spray starch that has been brushed around the edges to get that perfect circle! They also taught me how to get my corners matched up and make good points at the tutorial they had at “Just Sew”
I am so excited! I joined a block of the month quilt at Just Sew in Highland, Utah!
I absolutely love the colors and the patterns in this quilt.
The pattern for this quilt is called: Sew Classic Sampler.
This pattern is designed to teach three kinds of piecing (regular, paper and template piecing) as well as a little applique. It is a very stunning quilt and I am SEW excited to be doing this!
These are my first two blocks that I have finished for this month:
Name of this block is: Arbor Window (aka Granny Square)
