Welcome to Saturday Quilting Bring & Share. Bring along your projects(s) and settle down to enjoy sharing in the company of other members of our Worldwide Quilting Community. I hope you have time to be creative and also click through to some of the inspiring blog posts hi-lighted in this edition of SQB&S.
I’ve been hand sewing and researching bag-making whilst enjoying the company of our house guests. How lovely to be able to invite family members back into our home and have them staying over night too! We’ve had an easy paced week, time to relax and just ‘be’ together. You may have seen the post I shared a couple of days ago following a walk in a bluebell wood. In the chilled-out family times we’ve been sharing I’ve made some progress with the fourth block of the English Country Garden QAL and continued my research into the craft of bag-making. I’m excited to be learning so many new things, ready to get practicing and already planning to share what I’m learning via in-person workshops. So many ideas whizzing around inside my head! 😀
I hope you are able to enjoy more time with family and friends and that the pandemic restrictions are not hampering your creativity. There may be just the inspiration you need in this weeks links into the Quilty World:
Julie aka Jaybird Quilts has a new take-it-at-your-own-pace Quilt-A-Long. Use her speciality rulers to create fascinating shapes and patterns. More information here.
Nancy is figuring out a quilt layout for a large collection of Hourglass blocks. Decisions, decisions!
Lissa and Cassandra have collaborated to create a week-by-week QAL, ‘Quilt Concert Series 2021‘. The quilt has a modern twist with blocks of different scales combining to make interesting patterns and providing an opportunity to learn and practice cutting and piecing skills.
Jane gives a quick tutorial in response to all the interest in her ‘Four Patch Scrappy Quilt‘. It really is very effective with lots of secondary patterns created by the arrangement of four patch units within Economy Block style surrounds.
Patty’s Scrappy Fabric Rug adventure wasn’t without it’s traumas but she persevered and shares lessons learned the hard way to ease others down the rug making adventure trail 🙂
