Daily Update - November 21, 2021
What am I Doing?
I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.
The quilt in the photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.
This pattern is Free on November 21st only.
These blocks can help you count down the days until Christmas! They an also be used during the whole month of December staring on December 1 through New Years Eve. They are made with 2 x 2 x 2 little gift boxes that have been stuffed with rocks for weight. The boxes were then covered in clear shipping tape to make them secure and solid.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Not Free.
Beads made with this bead sheet would look great with beads that have an AB finish to them like clear crystal beads and pearlized white beads.
This is the 14th quilt block tutorial in a series on how to make quilt blocks using the new Quilt as You Piece Method.
This Week's Tip
Paper Templates in Quilting
To make it easier to use small paper templates in making quilt blocks, put double stick tape on the back side of the template and stick it onto the fabric and use your ruler and rotary cutter to cut your quilt block piece following the lines of the template.
