“Vintage Memories”, our newest Block of the Month, is now accepting members.
The quilt is designed by Sherri K. Falls, This & That Pattern Company, and features a variety of beautiful prints from the Martinique collection by Three Sisters for Moda
As we cut the kit for the first 2 blocks, I couldn’t resist bringing one home to get started. I plan to piece this quilt along with the club members, as a little treat to myself.
Here’s what I found in the first packet.
(2) individually wrapped patterns, Block 1 & Block 2
Generous fabric cuts for the first (2) blocks. All fabrics are either fat quarters or fat eighths, a joy to work with.
Fabrics for Block 1:
Cutting directions are organized, and neatly presented. You’ll make (2) of each block.
As I cut my fabrics, I loosely pin the stack of block elements:
Piecing directions are straightforward & well written. The blocks come together nicely. I do find that as I join complex elements, the block looks nicer & lays more flat if seams are pressed open.
Within a couple of hours, all four blocks are done.
12 1/2”. Visually interesting, with nice contrast and a crisp, pretty result.
Block 1. Block 2.
And, the group of four.
These blocks look so elegant, a lovely combination of color and contrast. The coral red, grey, blue, and cream look very nice together.
I can’t wait to get started on the next packet.
Blocks (3) and (4) look like fun!
