Just a quickie to let you know I’ve updated the website and put a new Free Pattern there. Everyone seems to be getting very excited about the evening class sampler quilt we’ve been planning so we thought we would share the patterns for some of the blocks we have used in previous sampler classes. First up is the Carrie Nation Quilt block.
We’ve given instructions for making the block at both 8 inch and 12 inch plus lots of ideas for colouring the block and putting several together to make a quilt using just that block. A couple of ideas are on our flickr page, as you may have noticed from the sidebar, and we hope to update the EQ Doodles page soon to show you some more. In the meantime here’s what the block looks like in grey scale (in one colouring) and an example of a quilt. You can of course just make one or two blocks and wait for us to put up instructions for further 4-patch blocks so you can make a Sew-Along-Sampler with us. We may even manage to find the original 4-patch sampler quilt and take a photo of it.
