Welcome to week 5 of the 100 Blocks Sampler Sew Along. Are you sewing along with us? How are your 100 Blocks Sampler blocks coming along?
Wed love to see your blocks. Email pictures of your blocks to firstname.lastname@example.org, and Ill put together a collage of your blocks for everyone to see.
If youre just now joining us, this 100 Blocks Sampler is a collection of quilt blocks taken from different issues ofQuiltmakers 100 Blocksmagazines reduced to 6. Click here to catch up on previous blog posts.Quilt kits are available, as well as thepattern only.
Todays block is Ladder Up, block #586 from Quiltmakers 100 Blocks, volume 6. This block was designed by Toby Lischko. Be sure to check out Tobys block on her blogas well as the other designers sewing along with us. Theyre all listed at the bottom.
Heres Ladder Up.
Later in our sew along, well be featuring a block designed by Kimberly Jolly of the Fat Quarter Shop. She has posted a great little video tutorial for framing quilt blocks.I think this is a great idea for our 100 Blocks Sampler blocks.
I also framed a little quilt that I made to go with a larger quilt of mine. My framed project is a little different from KimberlysI quilted mine first. You can see how I made mine here.
Keep these in mind for some of your extra fabric. Theyre great for gifts or to use in your own home! Im working on a red and white one that Ill show in a future post.
