A Challenge is Always a Good Thing!!
Quilted Moose Quilt Shop, 2018 and they still have patterns for their 2017 block challenges also. The challenge is to make one block a week. The same block week after week for one year, or as long as it takes to get the amount you want for a quilt. At the end of the year they promise a quilt to encourage you to use your blocks. They each have Facebook and Instagram pages where you can post your blocks and see everyone's blocks. What Fun! I love to see different fabric combinations.
Here are two of mine. The Cake Stand (2017 Challenge) and 9 Patch.
Now for the Cake Stand which is the 2017 challenge. I have completed one but have also cut pieces for putting together a massive amount at an upcoming quilt retreat with friends on March 3rd. If I get the pieces cut I can see some quilt results. On Instagram use #52weekquiltchallenge or #cakestand.
When cutting the pieces, pattern calls for one 3 7/8 inch square cut in half for the bottom stand plus 1 -2 3/8 inch square cut diagonally for the part of the bottom stand that is joined to the 2 x 3 1/2 inch background pieces.
If you go to their challenge web page and decide to take the challenge, maybe you will come back here and use my cutting technique. It probably won't make much sense unless you actually are cutting the pieces with all your mind in! If you know what I mean.
Have a great new week beginning tomorrow.
I am worshipping my God not only in the morning but all the time as He is my redeemer and has given me eternal life. Because He lives, when I die I actually continue to live. I know that--because He allows me to know that. His Spirit tells mine.
