Just in case you were wondering…or Shopping!

Hello, everyone

I thought it might be a great idea to share the fabric requirements for this year’s Block of the Month quilt.

Sashes and Borders

I always seem to take a picture of my feet! Finished with sashing.

The finished quilt size, using 3″ unfinished (2 1/2″ finished) sashing and border, is 47″ x 62″. I used 5 different solid colours. I purchased 1/2 yard of each colour and 1 + 1/2 yards of the white background fabric. I used almost all but a few random strips to make this quilt top. There is no room for errors in these measurements.

You could easily use fat quarters (approximately 9-10) rather than fabric off the bolt, and of course, a layer cake would work as well but be careful with those larger blocks, especially Hot Cross Buns!

These measurements are meant as a suggestion ONLY. You may want to purchase 10% more just in case.

Alternate Blocks

However, should you choose to finish your block with an alternate block, such as the hour glass, you will require at least twice as much background and focus fabric. I would strongly suggest using two-colours for this option. I am quite sure I used 8-9 different black and white prints in this one! I would love to see this in blues and yellows or red and whites! The finished quilt size is 72″ x 72″.

Hope this helps. Happy shopping and happy quilting.

See you on Thursday! I will have all of my quilts with me 🙂

Log Cabin Fever Sew-Along Draws❤

A Special Note From Darlene

Hello Ladies
This month we will be putting our Log Cabin Fever quilt-top together. Those of you participating in the BOM, will receive a copy of the “Block Layout sheet”, which will show you how to layout your squares to finish your quilt top (It will be much like working on a jigsaw puzzle).


I also wanted to mention that we will be having a draw in Sept. and Nov. The first draw in Sept. will be for those of you who finish putting your top together. A photo of your quilt top has to be forwarded to me, in order to have your name put into the Sept. draw. Each prize is for a $25. gift certificate. The second draw, in Nov., as per our Guild custom, will be for a totally completed quilt – quilted, bound and labelled. More information will be sent out closer to the time of the Nov. draw.

Thank you to HummingBird Sewing and Thimbles and Things Quilt Shop for the prizes. If you would like to take part in the Sept. draw, please send
me a photo of your finished top and I will enter your name. The draw will take place on Sept. 8th at our Exec. Meeting.

Thank you to those of you who continue to send in photos of your monthly BOM projects. I can’t wait to see your finished tops.

Darlene

Congratulations to Diane. The first assembled quilt top photo received by Darlene. Her name will be entered into the September draw.

Congratulations to Darlene too! She shared her photo with me. Great job ladies. I can’t wait the see more.

For those of you interested in the 2021-2022 QAL, I will be your “host” and I can’t wait to get started. Please let me know what you would like to make. Click here to Vote.

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend. Be sure to read the May Newsletter!
