Temecula Quilt company is having a sampler quilt along. I have cut out all the blocks and am making tracks! Today, I made the above blocks. If you would like to sew some fun and easy blocks, they are posting one every Friday. The link is below.
I changed the middle block, as the dark green seemed a bit too muddy or dark for the rest of the blocks.
Tell me, if you will, what would you do with these? These were given to me, and are English paper pieced with 1/2 inch hexies. What you see here is all there are of these; eight of them.
Also in the packet were these, made from quarter inch hexies! They are itty bitty!! Any ideas???
In the same little packet were these blocks. I see them as signature blocks, and as you see, one is smaller than the rest. Maybe this quilter gave up, when she realized the block was smaller, or maybe the whole thing just lost its shine for her. I think I will make another one of the bigger size and use them somewhere. They are fun blocks!!
Thread!! Someone recently said to try Signature 60 three ply thread, so I ordered some. It is so, so thin, and snaps easily. But, my sewing machine loves it!! I will use it up. My big time favorite is Aurifil. What is your favorite thread? I have some old spools of dual duty I am trying to use up, also.
Also, what is your best needle for hand quilting, and what thread do you use? Thank you so much for your advice and wisdom!!
