A post from Kelli–
When I announced last month that we would be making two blocks, I was a little bit worried that it might be a bit too much. I was sure excited when Mom told me she was getting emails from our quilt-alongers with both blocks! In order to get the entire sampler done in a year, we are going to keep making two blocks each month until we have all of the blocks done. From there, we will work on completing the center block, piecing the background setting triangles, and putting all of our blocks together to complete the quilt. I know that I have busy summer planned with graduation parties, weddings, showers, and hopefully a little vacation (just to Mom’s), so I’m going to really have to plan time to get the blocks done. If you happen to only get a block done or maybe aren’t able to complete the part “assigned” for the month, don’t feel bad at all. You can get caught up in the next month or two and send your pictures when you have them available.
Without further ado, here are the blocks that we will make for the month of June–Blocks 7 and 8.
Block 8 on the left is called Maine Woods Variation. Block 7 is on the right. It is called Milky Way.
Here are the blocks that were completed by our quilt-alongers…
Here is Joanna’s block.
Come back tomorrow to check out our stitch along! When we were traveling to Minnesota this past weekend, Mom was adding the finishing stitches to her block. I’m starting to really wish that I would have stitched along instead of only quilting along!
