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.
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 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.
