Releasing May’s block just a few hours early…I’m sleeping in tomorrow!
LADY OF THE LAKE
is this block name!
I am truly loving this block so much that I am considering a side project just with this block in it. Those gentle curves just make my hand piecing heart pitter-patter.
Wait to you see some of the secondary designs I will be sharing on Tuesday.
As you can see by the image above I am placing the red in the curved inner triangles on each and every one of my blocks in my quilt. Remember the use of red in each block is what I am using to unite all my blocks in my scrappy row quilt.
Six templates for this block makes it one of the more complex in my project. But it is good to challenge ourselves sometimes and push our skill set further. These curves make this block rock in design and are so easy to sew by hand vs. machine.
I have finished block one for my quilt while taking pictures for the step by step instructional blog that will post on Sunday.
And I will also have a blog on Tuesday showing you what row I plan to use my block in and several other layout options for you to consider in your project.
And of course just as I was almost done making this first block the lightbulb went off in my head about making a small portable design wall so that I can obtain great lighting for photography of the block(s) at any time. So honestly the blog pics in Sunday’s how to will be much better by the end!
I do have the Acrylic Template sets, and English Paper Piecing sets (one and six blocks) in the store and you can order now if you wish.
And since this block release coincides with Mother’s Day Month,
I am offering the Acrylic Templates and the Six Block EPP papers set at 20% off from now until midnight on May 10th.
In fact I am extending this sale to include the Paris Flight, Jim Dandy AND Castle Wall templates/EPP papers!
I hope you like this block and will join along with us on my facebook page as blocks are created and posted/shared for all to see. I just love seeing them all!
