For this week’s sewing post and link-up, please go HERE.
World Book Media doesn’t have their own blog so I’ve offered up my own to give Lindsay a space to share some info about her block!
We were so honored when Al invited us to be the final guest for the 318 Patchwork Patterns Quilt Along! We’ve really enjoyed seeing all the blocks you guys have made so far and have been so inspired by the amazing projects that our very talented blogger friends whipped up for the 318 Patchwork Patterns Blog Hop.
When we first started stitching up these blocks, we quickly realized just how addicting they are to make! One of our favorite blocks to put together was the slice of cake (#3 in the book). This design is constructed with several large, rectangular pieces, so it is one of the easiest blocks to make. We enlarged the block about 200% then hand sewed the pieces together using a simple backstitch.
Once we got started, we couldn’t stop sewing these blocks! We ended up adding a backing to each block and displaying the completed squares on a message board. The book includes a full alphabet, numbers, and some symbols, so we plan to make a few more blocks in order to create fun messages!
After seeing all the wonderful projects everyone has made, we’ve come to believe that this book is even more special than we realized. Thanks for all the support and enthusiasm you’ve all shared for this book!
