I took some hand stitching with me to create some samples for the first block on our Lynne Edwards Sampler Quilt.

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.

There was much excitement about our next project - The Essential Sampler Quilt from the Lynne Edwards book. And it was great to see that lots if you already your copy of the book.
Thank you to Jean Pitman who came along and showed us her one and a half sampler quilts!
We are all fired up and ready to quilt now.

Ok my Quilty Friends. I promised we would start a Sampler Quilt when Thursday class starts back in September.
We'll be using blocks from The Essential Sampler Quilt book by Lynne Edwards

It's from 10-4 and we will be having a Hope Lunch (asking everyone to bring a plate of food and 'Hope' there is enough).
