As a Martha Pullen licensed sewing teacher I love to learn new sewing techniques and I equally enjoy teaching sewing techniques to others.  You can also find me teaching Bernina Customer Courses at my local Bernina dealer.  In addition, I demonstrate Stampin' Up products.  I am a servant of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, wife of one, mom of two, and grandma of five.  Welcome to my sewing and crafting studio!

Friendship Quilt

The Friendship Quilt will be a new class offering at Nuttall's Fabric Store.
Before it is offered as a class,
we (the employees) are sewing blocks to exchange with one another.
You guessed it, the friendship quilt is a block swap.
We each make 10 blocks and exchange them with one another.
We each end up with 10 different blocks than those with which we started.

The color 'rules' are:
  • White background
  • Blue star points
  • Red corner
 The Winter Star block pattern we're using is from this book:


 I fussy cut all 10 of the block centers from some fabric I had leftover from this skirt 


Fussy cutting may be a new term for you.
If you're curious, here's a short video that I recorded on fussy cutting fabric:



 Now that all the cutting is done, I'm ready to sew those 10 blocks!

Exchanging quilt blocks is like giving presents.
Sew much fun!!!

If you are in the local area, check with the Layton store to sign up for the Friendship Quilt.

Have you participated in quilt block swaps?
Please leave a comment and let the rest of us know your thoughts.

Until next time, my friends, keep sewing.
