Yesterday I had fun making some adorable 4-patch blocks for Lori's "Row Along" quilt project! I had so much fun playing with my Marmalade scraps for this project!
Lori has a super easy method for making these 4-patches...you start out with 3" squares and end up with squares that will finish at 1"! And you don't have to ever work with 1" segments which helps to keep your pieces straight and even.
My first row in the row along is finished...in two weeks Lori will post instructions for row 2!
The beginning of this week was busy, but I was able to start sashing the Farmer's Wife blocks...I'm definitely glad I'm using this setting for this quilt! I just love the extra open space this setting provides.
I started with a small group of blocks to be set each way...it's so fun revisiting these blocks again as I work with them again!
I worked on straight set blocks and on-point blocks...love them all!
And...yesterday I received the most amazing patterns...Carrie has done it again...she has a new line of designs created with Moda Candy...those cute packs of 2 1/2" squares!
I want to make every one of these quilts...and all of the pincushions too! You can find out more about these patterns today on Carrie's blog and enter a giveaway to win set of these patterns here!
And finally...on a completely non-sewing/quilting note...I have to mention this little book, One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book which I first saw on Camille's blog. My personal journaling has lagged a little since I spend quite a bit of time writing this blog, but I really wanted a way to record more every day things. This little book is the perfect solution...I usually just jot down a sentence or two about things going on and already have had fun looking back!
Thanks so much for stopping by...hope you have a wonderful day!
