Design Wall Monday

On the design wall today is a quilt that my small quilting group is building. 
We collected the block kits on a shop hop in July of 2016 and have decided to combine our blocks to make a donation quilt. None of the 4 of us were able to travel to all the shops so it will be interesting to see what blocks we end up with. 
I am sewing all 4 of the log cabin star blocks, since the centres are made from 1" strips and none of my friends will sew with 1" pieces! I have 1 more of those star blocks to sew. Also my friends don't like paper piecing, so I'll be sewing the pumpkin blocks that they collected. It will be an interesting fall themed sampler quilt.

  2. What a great idea to combine the blocks into one donation quilt!!! I didn't get to any of the shop hop that year...we were away most of July so missed all of them. This will be a great quilt :-)

  3. A collaborative project will provide all of you with a way to remember the shop hop and benefit someone/some cause besides. Great idea!

  11. Very cool! My favorite part of your story is that you’re the one that is brave enough to sew with 1 inch strips. Way to go!
