The next block on our Lynne Edwards, The Essential Sampler Quilt journey will be Attic Windows found on page 192 of the above book.
Here is my Attic Window block
Our next block from Lynne Edwards The Essential Sampler Quilt Book is the Folded Flying Geese block.
Found on page 169.
To make the block you need to choose
1 or possibly 2 fabrics for the background of the 'geese'.
Anything from 1 to 5 fabrics for the 'geese'
And 1 central square.
In this picture (my block) I have used
1 fabric for the backgrounds.
5 fabrics for the geese.
And a different fabric for the centre square.
Have a look at the quilts on pages 131, 155, 165, 197, to see different versions of colour ways.
I'm sure the Eagle eyed among you will have noticed I've added the inner border to this block. I'll be telling you about that next.
Ok my Quilty Friends - in 24th September we shall be starting our Thursday project. The Lynne Edwards Sampler Quilt.
We are starting with the Tumbling Blocks block.
On that day you will need three different fabrics for for the tumbling blocks (see example below).
You need enough of each fabric to cut six 3" squares. That's 18 squares in total.
The blocks do need a 17" sq of background fabric but don't worry too much about bringing that along - you won't get to that stage on the day.
You'll need hand stitching kit (needle, thread, scissors, pins) pencil and ruler.
And a small amount (about A5's worth) of paper for the piecing, the front cover of a nice magazine works well. Don't fret - I will have spares with me.
I'll bring everything else.
Ok my Quilty Friends I've been working out how many 17" squares you can get out of a piece of wadding ready for the Lynne Edwards Sampler Quilt we are just about to start making.
Many of you will know how wonderful I am with figures so I won't be offended if you feel the need to double check me.
So here goes.
Crib (60"x45") Six
Twin (72"x90") Twenty
Queen (90"x108") Thirty
King (120"x120") Forty nine - this number worries me!
Then by the metre
90" wide Ten
108" wide Twelve
120" wide Fourteen
How much wadding you need will depend on how big you want your quilt to be.
A lot of the quilts in the book have 20 blocks in. But REMEMBER you will also need wadding for the borders.
