for my block of the month, I made this one based on the quilt “The Bass Line”. I really think this would be a fun one to make a whole quilt with. It would also be a good way to use a favorite Jelly Roll.
I don’t know about you, but I have so many quilting books, and I will likely keep buying my favorites. The problem is, I hardly ever actually make something from my books. So this year, I started a quilters’ book club back when my kids started school in September.
Each month of the school year, I am choosing a book to highlight and make one block. This gives me a chance to take a new look at my favorite books and to actually make a project inspired by them. At the end of the school year, I will have nine sampler blocks to make into a quilt!
This month I am highlighting “Hand Quilted with Love” by Sarah Fielke. My wonderful mother gave me this book for Christmas and it is so full of great quilts.
I added the “Bangles” quilt to my to-do list, too. It is a fun hexagon-in-hexagon pattern, and my mom just finished her top using this pattern. A-dorable! (if I can grab a good photo when she comes to visit, I will share)
As you might expect if you are familiar with Sarah’s other books, this one has a great variety of projects, all in very cheery colors and fabrics.
I have five blocks done now! Here they are, each from a different book in my library, all very bright and colorful…just the way I like it!
Have a great week! School is already cancelled for tomorrow, so I see some extra sewing in my future this week.
