Hi everyone! If you’ve had a busy weekend or otherwise missed it, check out our sixth block…the Marcus sew-along excitement continues with Nancy Rink of Nancy Rink Designs. It looks intricate, but Nancy makes it easy! Read all about this creative author and designer, then stitch up her sew-along block, taking advantage of her expert tips along the way.
With just three more “Friday” block posts to go, we’re two-thirds of the way there, but there’s still time to get caught up! You’ll find the full sew-along details here, including the schedule. With two-thirds of the blocks completed, we know you can’t wait for the big reveal, and neither can we!! Stay focused, and stay tuned…. -lisa
Hello quilting friends! Without further delay, we’ve randomly chosen three winners of our Week #4 Sew-Along giveaway. I’m calling it our “EPP with Pati V” Pack. Winners will receive English Paper Piecing hexies by Paper Pieces and a selection of Marcus Fabrics in Pati’s favorite taupy neutrals (prints may vary from those shown here). Thanks to all who submitted their comments! —– lisaOur Week #4 winners are:
1. Joan Wilson, who commented, “The combination of several fine designers, designing a quilt, on line, is such a great idea and sense of a quilting community (that is not available to me in my area). It gives me a wonderful feeling of being part of a large group of quilters. I hope this is the 1st of many projects.”
2. Rachael Ferrera, who commented, “I just love the block, especially all of the color! Thanks for the opportunity to win.”
3. Camille Lefebvre, who commented, “Having sew much fun with this sew along! Wondering what the difference is between English paper piecing and just paper piecing? Would love to try something new! Thanks for the opportunity.” (Read Pati’s answer…)
